Singer Valve Inc. Launches A New Automated Pilot Control With Low Power Requirements, Ideal For Remote Stations Using SCADA
Singer Valve, a leading manufacturer of control valves has launched the new 420-DC or 420-AC Automated Pilot Control that is a reliable, simple and cost efficient way to automate water systems. Mark Gimson, Business Development and Marketing Manager for Singer Valve said, “In this new model we have added over-volt protection, 4-20mA feedback, O ring sealed, explosion proof housing with new certification and a more modular design so repair can be done on specific parts that need it.” In addition, Singer has doubled the torque on the motors so the actuator’s operational life is significantly increased.
Easy to Install, Set and Repair
The pilot control offers programmable span and speed control via USB cable and software. This innovation allows easy field calibration using a laptop and standard USB connection rather than a custom cable. This reduces the number of wires in the connecting cable to the actuator making it easier to install. The motor actuator responds to a 4-20 mA signal, rotating the pilot adjusting screw corresponding to the change in signal. The number of turns is adjustable and may be programmed to suit the pressure changes required for the application. With four different motors and modular boards, parts are easily replaced in the field.
Low Power, Durable and Accurate
The 420-DC or 420-AC requires less than 2 amps of power to operate, controlled by the 4-20 mA signal from the water distribution SCADA system. The very low power requirement lends itself well to a solar powered self-contained station. Extended power failure would result in relatively steady pressure at the last setting. Optional freeze or default to high or low pressure is available on loss of signal. With IP68 certification, not only can the 420DC withstand water, it is capable of being totally submerged and still operating to a depth of seven feet for 24 hours. There is also built in surge suppression for protection against voltage spikes. The closed loop positioning systems offers predicable and repeated accuracy.
