Durapipe has launched a Bluetooth powered valve actuator, allowing users to operate actuated valves remotely using any compatible Bluetooth device.
Allowing users to have control at their fingertips, the new Bluetooth actuator is ideal for operating valves located in confined spaces, or at height, without personnel needing to be positioned in a control room. Aiding installation, the new actuator also eliminates the need to run cables from the actuator to a central PLC system, saving time and money on site.
Offering multiple operational benefits, the Bluetooth Actuator can be operated within a 10m range, even when the actuator is not visible, and allows multiple actuators to be controlled by a single device. Each actuator has a unique ID allowing the user to switch between several devices and, with a passkey required to connect to every valve, security is maintained.
The new Bluetooth actuator is available for simple on / off isolation applications and can be fitted to a wide variety of our manual valves including VKD ball valves, VKR metering ball valves, TKD 3 way ball valves and FK butterfly valves.
