What do a fox and an electric valve actuator have in common? A lot, if the actuator in question is AUMA’s brand new PROFOX, says the company.
Like its namesake, PROFOX is not only cunning and adaptable but also extremely hardy. AUMA’s more than 50 years of experience developing and manufacturing electric actuators has yielded a high-performance actuator series with exciting new features and an excellent cost-benefit ratio.
The smart and compact PROFOX series is suitable for all industry sectors, including water treatment, combined heat and power plants, process industries and shipbuilding.
Cunning: Built-in intelligence makes PROFOX equally suited to both simple open-close duty and challenging modulating applications. Motor speed is adjustable, ensuring fast and precise positioning without overrun. Soft start and soft stop functionality increases valve lifetime. Operating costs are low, thanks to high mechanical efficiency and low standby consumption. Innovative diagnostics ensure long-term availability and future-proof PROFOX actuators for IIoT applications.
Adaptable: AUMA PROFOX actuators work with gate, butterfly, ball and globe valves. There are multi-turn versions for torques of 10 to 100 Nm and part-turn versions delivering 32 to 600 Nm. Modular design ensures flexible configuration, rapid delivery and consistent operation.
Hardy: The PROFOX series is engineered and built in Germany – and designed to last, even under the toughest process conditions.
