Build Your Own Actuator


ProVolt Universal Voltage Actuator

The ProVolt® Series Multiple Voltage Actuator is a quarter turn Rotary Actuator that will work with all voltage inputs. With the flip of an internal switch on the board, these actuators can accept any of
the following input voltages: 115vac, 230vac, 24vac, 24vdc or 12vdc. No more ordering or stocking separate voltage actuators! This new series can operate loads from 400 to 1500 in/lbs.

The PV Series can also be ordered with the Optional Battery Backup Feature. When installed, the actuator’s internal battery will provide power to the motor in the event of an external power failure.
The actuator can be configured in the field for FAIL OPEN or FAIL CLOSE. Switching from external power to battery power is seamless – when the external power source fails, the internal transfer
circuit switches to battery power automatically without any operator intervention.

This unit can be ordered as a standard OPEN/CLOSE actuator or with the Modulating Option for precise valve position control using 4-20mA, 0-10V or 1-5V external input signal.
NOTE: The Modulating Option CANNOT be added in the field.
