SPECIFICATIONS FOR MODEL RC ACTUATOR
AUTOMATIC CONTROL FOR CYLINDER AND CONTAINER VALVES
The Model RC is an actuator that OPENS AND CLOSES the valve on compressed gas cylinders such as chlorine, sulfur dioxide, and ammonia cylinders and containers.
The actuator is battery-operated with an electric motor
that rotates the valve stem toward open or closed position for alignment,
tests, and remote operation. The actuator is designed to mount without
interfering with cylinder mounted hardware such as chlorinators, regulators
etc. No yoke modifications or additional adaptors are required. The motor,
gears, and controls are assembled as one unit.
The system includes a remote power supply enclosure for trickle charge of the SLA battery. Engaging the actuator is accomplished by tilting the actuator, resting actuator on valve and repositioning to the same plane as the valve stem. Monitor and controls are accomplished with a microprocessor and integral LED lights for CLOSED, ALIGN, and OPEN. Setup is accomplished through an integral keypad. Valve position is transmitted to the microprocessor from a direct-coupled potentiometer.
For information on inexpensive leak detectors to interact with the actuators, refer to Specification LD100.

The Model RC actuator is packaged as an independent actuator
that opens and closes the cylinder or container valve by using an integral
membrane keypad. The actuator mounts to the valve independently from any
hardware that may be mounted to the valve. A 30-foot 3-wire shielded signal
cable is included with an AMP connector that attaches to the actuator.
The loose end of the cable is terminated in the Model RPS006 for battery
power and a close signal that is created by a remote contact from another
device, such as a leak detector or panic button. The enclosure body can
be rotated on the actuator base by 180 degrees to accommodate mounting
two actuators on a ton container simultaneously. The gear drive alignment
arm can be rotated in 90 degree increments to accommodate various mounting
requirements. When remote open and close is required, the actuator can
be modified with the RA901 radio transceiver kit to accept radio signals
from the Model RCP016RF remote control panel. The kit and control panel
must be purchased separately.
|The Model RPS006 is a remote
power supply with automatic charger, 12 volt battery, and terminals to power
up to six actuators. Terminals are also included for signal wire from remote
dry contacts to close the actuators. The enclosure is NEMA 4X and includes
a window to monitor the charger and battery condition. Cables for actuators
are furnished with each actuator and are supplied with a CGB connector for
sealed entry into this enclosure. Mounting holes and cable entries are created
by the installer.
The Model RPS006 with shipping carton is 14" x 10" x 6" and weighs 9 pounds.
|The Model LD100-0 is a remote
leak detector and is powered by the RPS006 battery that is used for the
actuators. The leak detector has a contact closure that will close all actuators
if the ambient air contains chlorine or sulfur dioxide. Alarm points are
adjustable in increments of 1 PPM from 1 to 7 PPM. The enclosure is NEMA
4X and includes a power light, alarm light, and acknowledge pushbutton to
clear the output contact closure. Mounting holes and cable entries are created
by the installer.
The Model LD100-0 with shipping carton is 7" x 7" x 7" and weighs 2 pounds. The leak detector and instruction book are included.
|The Model RPB001 is a remote
pushbutton that can be used to close all actuators. It has one dry contact
that can be connected to the LD terminals of the RPS006. Mounting holes
and cable entries are created by the installer.
The Model RPB001 with shipping carton is 7" x 7" x 7" and weighs 2 pounds.
|The Model RCP016RF is a remote
control panel for radio control of all actuators. This panel must be used
when radio control is desired. The control panel has battery, charger, transceiver,
antenna and necessary program to operate up to 16 actuators. The Model RC
actuators, actuator radio conversion kits (RA901), and actuator power supply
(RPS006) must be purchased separately. The enclosure includes a power light
and panic button for operator interface. The control panel has RS232 interface
for connection to a PLC or computer.
The Model RCP016RF with shipping carton is 24" x 18" x 12" and weighs 26 pounds.
