Electric actuator manufacturer AUMA has added an explosion-proof version to its successful PROFOX actuator series.

“The new PROFOX-X actuators expand all the benefits of our small and smart PROFOX actuator series to applications in potentially explosive atmospheres,” says AUMA product manager Christoph Edelmann. “The versatile, future-proof actuators meet all the requirements of modern plant automation.”

ATEX and IECEx certifications for the highest gas group IIC T4, which includes hydrogen, ensure safe operation in potentially explosive atmospheres.

As with the whole PROFOX line, the PROFOX-X series includes multi-turn, part-turn and linear actuators, offering automation solutions for all valve types in the lower torque and thrust ranges. Compact design makes PROFOX-X a perfect fit for tight spaces, for example in skid installations.

All PROFOX actuators are optimised for low energy consumption and high efficiency, thus minimising their carbon footprint.

High-quality “made in Germany” design and construction, wide temperature range and premium corrosion protection ensure high reliability and long service life under tough process conditions.

The smart actuators are equally suited to OPEN-CLOSE duty and modulating applications. Motor speed is adjustable, ensuring fast and precise positioning. Soft start and soft stop functionalities increase valve lifetime.

PROFOX actuators support fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet communication, making host system integration flexible and easy. The actuators’ embedded data logging is a perfect match for CORALINK, AUMA’s digital ecosystem, enabling advanced diagnostics and predictive maintenance.

PROFOX actuators are simple and easy to use via an app, saving time and resources during installation and commissioning. The FOX-EYE, a centrally placed LED, and a position indicator on the housing clearly show the actuator status at any time, even from a distance.
