Biffi Italia – a world-leading manufacturer of high-performance and reliable valve actuation systems – is proud to introduce the new ICON3000 electric actuator: a smart, powerful multi-turn actuator that offers improved reliability and capabilities versus its predecessors from the ICON family of actuators.
Featuring a wide range of torques from 30Nm to 1440Nm and speeds up to 173 RPM, the ICON3000 possesses the versatility to slot into myriad industrial systems yet exhibits the ruggedness necessary to survive in the most extreme environmental conditions. Rated for temperatures as low as -60°C [-76°F], the ICON3000 also offers certified painting solutions for the strongest protection against the most aggressive of environments.
The ICON3000 is compliant with a wide range of communication protocols, including FOUNDATION Fieldbus®, HART®, PROFIBUS® DPV0, DPV1, and redundant DPV2, LonWorks®, and Modbus®. Furthermore, the ICON3000 comes fully integrated with Biffi’s A-Manager software and the DCM2 Master Station, providing easy and smart configuration and diagnostics capabilities. Such programmable intelligence allows the end user to achieve the level of control demanded by the target application.
The ICON3000 is equipped with a compact, dependable absolute encoder, which guarantees position detection even if main and back-up battery power are lost. The actuator also comes with a new dot matrix OLED user interface display, capable of showing detailed information such as icons and drawings – as well as being easy for the human eye to view in tough environments. A wide range of gears and couplings is available for combination with the ICON3000, further increasing the actuator’s versatility to cover any application in the multi-turn or quarter-turn arena.
