Rotork has been working with BAE Systems to improve a collection of A-range actuators to IQ3 actuators which function penstocks controlling motion of ships between the sea and transitional locks and dry docks at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Portsmouth (HMNB Portsmouth).
เกจวัดแรงดันภาษาอังกฤษ of A-range actuators had reached the end of their operational life after lengthy service in a difficult setting. BAE Systems wanted to retain all the benefits of electric actuators, so IQ3 actuators had been chosen. These had to be specifically adapted by Rotork to beat issues around confined spaces and tough entry.
IQ3 actuators and IS gearboxes were mechanically tailored so that both actuator and gearbox might be operated by hand with out entering the confined space. Rotork designed special hand auto levers and through drive mechanisms for the actuator and gearbox to get rid of the necessity for confined area access.
Actuators inside the IQ vary are watertight, offering ingress protection to IP66/68 at 20 m for 10 days. They have a sophisticated dual stacked display with configurable information logger performance, and an absolute place sensor offers reliability and accuracy.
