Rotork has been working with BAE Systems to upgrade a collection of A-range actuators to IQ3 actuators which function penstocks controlling motion of ships between the ocean and transitional locks and dry docks at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Portsmouth (HMNB Portsmouth).
A sequence of A-range actuators had reached the tip of their operational life after long service in a challenging surroundings. ที่วัดแรงดัน needed to retain all the advantages of electric actuators, so IQ3 actuators had been chosen. These had to be specifically tailored by Rotork to overcome issues around confined spaces and troublesome access.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes have been mechanically tailored so that both actuator and gearbox could presumably be manually operated without entering the confined house. Rotork designed special hand auto levers and thru drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to remove the necessity for confined space access.
Actuators throughout the IQ vary are watertight, offering ingress protection to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have an advanced twin stacked display with configurable knowledge logger performance, and an absolute place sensor offers reliability and accuracy.
