PECC developed the ACT2000 and its family of all-electric linear actuated products as a replacement for older pneumatic and hydraulic technologies. Designed for high-temperature, hazardous environments, the ACT2000, and all PECC actuators employ patented design features including an explosion-proof, onboard electronic controller ensuring safe operation in the most demanding conditions. The ACT2000 is not sensitive to mounting orientation and therefore can be aligned in any position, to work in a variety of applications creating a flexible and cost-effective solution. This includes actuation for guide vanes and bleed valves on turbine engines, and steam valves in the process industry.
Proven to minimize downtime by achieving over 30,000 hours
Mean-Time-Between-Unscheduled-Removals [MTBUR], the all-electric ACT2000 features include a 6-inch stroke capability and onboard electronics. This enables precise closed-loop positioning through a compact, highly reliable brushless DC motor and ball screw drive mechanism, coupled with an integral resolver.
Each ACT2000 has an internal health monitoring system that provides fault and over-temperature information to the user, allowing real-time monitoring of critical parameters and facilitating predictive maintenance to reduce overall engine downtime.
Programmable to develop over 1200 lbf (pounds force), the all-electric ACT2000 can travel up to 10 inches per second. It is capable of achieving extremely tight positioning accuracy, better than ±1% of full stroke. Utilizing its unique software, the ACT2000 con be programmed for linear or non-linear stroke characteristics, facilitating optimal engine efficiency.
