TA Roloff installs DC motors in all of its actuator series. DC motors are superior to AC motors when it comes to automating valves. DC motors increase their torques if peaks in the required torques are encountered, a scenario fairly typical in a valve’s travel. Installation of DC motors is less costly and energy consumption is likewise lower. Faster response, precise positioning and the high resolution of the travel are positive characteristics of DC motors.
Advantages of DC motors:
- Torque performance is ideal for valves
- Straightforward electrical implementation
- Fast response in control systems
- Precise positioning
- Low electricity consumption
