This valve actuator has safety functions

The TriVAX product family (photo) provides confidence through traceable, proven, transparent safety functions. Along with the company’s smart Partial Stroke Test (sPST) integrated into the valve actuator, these functions include a hydraulic-circuit safety system with high-quality components, as well as the flameproof encapsulated housing that fulfills requirements for operation in potentially explosive atmospheres (Ex protection according to ATEX II2GD Ex d IIB T4). Especially with expansive facilities or pipelines, where the butterfly valves are often miles apart, the valves can be controlled via a simple electrical signal. Thanks to integrated interfaces to standard fieldbuses (Profibus PA, HART, Foundation Fieldbus) and the 4–20-mA connection, the TriVAX can be integrated quickly into existing automation concepts. — Hoerbiger Ventilwerke GmbH & Co.
