The Pneumatic Cylindric Actuator - ACP300 Series Combines the power of pneumatic cylinders and the FY300 Series capabilities - smart microprocessed positioner that allows applications in modulating control. More than taking the microprocessor to the actuator, the ACP300 Series is presented in linear and rotary versions, giving the user a wide choice of applications in the many final control elements such as dampers for furnace draft control, water gates, heavy valves and other applications requiring movement control.
The ACP300 receives a control signal from the controller and moves the cylinder to the exact position of control according to the control strategy and loop tuning. With the intelligence integration to the actuator, the ACP300 allows the user to configure the opening characteristic of the cylinder with the control of movement. In case the standard curves do not comply with the control requirements, it is possible to configure the ACP300 Series on a user-adjustable 16-point curve.
Furthermore, the HART®, Foundation fieldbus or PROFIBUS-PA communication protocols allow easy interface between the field and the control room and several features that reduce installation, operation and maintenance costs.
