AE Series – Electric Actuators

AE Series electric actuators are designed to provide a robust, reliable, and cost effective solution for those applications which require a common ball valve or butterfly valve to be electrically actuated. The units come standard with a polycarbonate semi-transparent lid with optional LED lights located on the circuit board for quick visual status of valve position. Extra limit switches, integral electrical relays, and space heaters are also standard on some models (please call for details). With a wide assortment of voltages, dual-voltage units, modulating capability, as well as fast acting and 100% duty cycle solutions, the AE Series is now available to impress!

Water and dust proof IP67 according to IEC60529


All gears are made of sintered material

Protection Degree

Water and dust proof IP67 according to IEC60529

ISO 5211

AE series has standard multiple mounting patterns according to ISO 5211 for easy automation.

Electro-Mechanical Switches

All AE actuators are equipped as standard with 2 auxiliary limit switches, with an option for 2 additional added on request.

Manual Override

A manual Override is standard on all AE units allowing for emergency operation in case of power outage
