Remotely control and monitor inaccessible actuators

| By Chemical Engineering



Designed for use with this company’s IQ3 actuators, the Remote Hand Station enables local monitoring and control for equipment in inaccessible locations. At distances up to 100 m from the valve, the Remote Hand Station provides the user with an exact duplicate of the actuator’s own monitoring and control interface, which retains all of the actuator’s functionality, including diagnostic data, such as valve torque and usage profiles, as well as service logs. Designed for wall- or pole-mounted installation, the Remote Hand Station is explosion-proof, and can be outfitted with a cover to prevent unauthorized interference. — Rotork plc, Bath, U.K.
