|Emergency Shut Down (ESD)|
Most safety-related applications are simple and straightforward, but require the utmost reliability and surety of closure. An actuator must have the ability to remain open for long periods without binding and then move quickly to the closed position. Although no device is 100% foolproof, a spring is the most desirable closure mechanism.
Mpac: A special version of the Mpac is available for ESD operation. A solid state relay and limit switch replace all controls and electronics. Operating the closure circuit is a spring and normally open hydraulic solenoid. When power is applied, the hydraulic solenoid closes and the motor moves the actuator to the open position. The limit switch cuts power to the relay shutting off the motor. The integral hydraulic valving holds the actuator in place without operating the motor. Removal of the electric power bypasses the valving by opening the solenoid and the spring moves the stem to the failure position.
