THE WORLD’S FIRST RIFT DRIVEN ELECTRIC ACTUATOR
Part Turn & Multi-Turn Applications
MADE IN BRITAIN
The SmartAct®-1 electric actuator was conceived, designed, prototyped, and is being manufactured in Britain.
HUGELY ENERGY EFFICIENT
A RIFT DRIVEN®
Contains the RIFT technology that will transform motor driven systems in the future. They show weight and energy savings of over 75% compared to traditional motor driven systems.
THE RIFT DRIVEN® ADVANTAGE
RIFT is a new British innovation; significantly enhancing the motor characteristics resulting in a powerful, light, and yet energy efficient motor driven product.
The SmartAct®-1 electric valve actuator is the world’s first RIFT DRIVEN® product .
Its revolutionary British design has a single glass reinforced polypropylene housing that contains the RIFT motor system and gearbox. The
SmartAct®-1 can be configured to produce a range of output torques up to 100Nm. In actuator comparison tests the SACO valve actuator is in fact over 90% more energy efficient than the market leading electric actuators it was compared with.
Combining PID control with a 10 bit magnetic electronic position sensing system, the SACO Smartact-1actuator gives very accurate positioning and timing capabilities. Part Turn or Multi-Turn applications can be configured with accuracy up to at least ¼ of a degree on most valves.
OPTIONAL SOLENOID FUNCTION
A huge advantage of the SACO actuator is that it is capable of very fast cycle times. This allows it to be used as a direct acting solenoid. Fitted to a full bore ball valve it eliminates the difficulties traditional
Smart, state of the art electronics provide accurate, reliable and repeatable performance characteristics and enables a comprehensive list of standard and optional features to be offered. Optional extra cost features include failsafe and/ or modulating functionality; speed control and fieldbus communications are available to customer order.
At a time where energy consumption is becoming increasingly important to the world, the SmartAct®-1 actuator takes full advantage of the dramatic reduction in energy that the RIFT DRIVEN® system provides. This creates an electric actuator with the lowest energy usage figures available in the world market.
