Product overview of quarter-turn actuators

    Binary sensor box for quarter-turn actuators: SRBP from Festo

Mixing processes under control: sensor boxes SRAP and SRBP

SRAP: an analogue position indicator for position monitoring of quarter-turn actuators

  • Output signals from 4 to 20mA
  • Detects end position and swivel angle

SRBP: a binary sensor box, which converts the mechanical open and close positions into electrical output signals.

Optional: mid-position sensing
