The TriVAX (photo) and TriVAX flex intelligent electrohydraulic valve actuators are as easy to install and handle as an all-electric drive unit, yet are as powerful, robust and durable as an actuator that is entirely hydraulic. The intelligent electronics ensure simple and intuitive operation. TriVAX replaces conventional valve-control units that may not yet feature certain safety functions, such as quick action or explosion protection, and do not comply with the latest standards. In addition to direct operation using the integrated electronics of the TriVAX unit featuring an intuitive human-machine interface (HMI), the valve can also be actuated via a remote-control console. Thanks to integrated interfaces to standard fieldbuses (in preparation: Profibus PA, HART, Foundation Fieldbus), TriVAX can also be incorporated into existing automation concepts. — Hoerbiger Automation Technology, Vienna, Austria
