Plast-O-Matic has introduced CAFE actuators that provide automatic voltage sensing from 24 to 240 Vac/Vdc, with standard manual override, position indicator, LED status lights, over-torque protection, condensation heater and thermal protection.

Standard actuation time is 5 s with 15 Nm torque. The CAFE NITRO model includes programmable options via OLED screen, complete menus, fully directional keypad, and onboard diagnostics.

Options include fail-safe battery pack and 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 10 Vdc or MODBUS electronic control. Variable speed can be set from 4 to 6 s via the OLED screen.

Both Plast-O-Matic models include mounting kit, multi-mode electronic over-torque protection against valve jam, brushless motor with ICP protection, thermostatic anti-condensation heater, remote position indicator via programmable relays, and Barrel style visual position indicator.

Units also include weatherproof anti-corrosive and UV protected glass filled polypropylene housing, simplified mounting with ISO 5211, external electrical connections via DIN plugs, soft reset via DIN plugs, and are CE marked with IP67 ingress protection.

The actuators are designed for easy field installation for 2-way valves, the company says, with 3-way valves available with a factory consultation.
