Zoedale Product Launch Success

First orders Delivered following Valve World Product launch



Zoedale Plc has just taken delivery of their first orders for the new Bernard Controls STX Intelligent Explosion Proof Electric Actuators following the successful launch of the product at the Valve World exhibition and conference in Dusseldorf at the end of 2010.

The New design of Quarter-turn and Multi-turn Electric Actuators covers the requirement of both ATEX /IEC-Ex and CSA Class 1 approvals and is available in a comprehensive range of torques.

The SQX and STX range have been designed to address both customer and end user needs. Product expectations were gathered via a two year International User Forum hosted by the Bernard Controls Worldwide Network of Subsidiary companies and Agents from the UK and USA, to as far afield as China and the Middle East.

All the new product enhancements and features come with the assurance of product reliability from the Bernard Controls robust actuator design and provide increased mechanical efficiency for heavy duty actuation. These robust features however are delivered without any detriment to the accuracy of the information gathered from the absolute torque and position encoders and sensors, which provide direct drive output information and feedback from the main actuator drive.

At the heart of the SQX and STX Range is the Bernard Controls User friendly INTELLI+ intelligent and nonintrusive control system, which provides both product and valve information to the user. The INTELLI+ system ensures that the critical information required for the longterm efficency of both valve and actuator, is easily and quickly available via a number of feedback facilities, thus optimising the valve life and maintenance operations.

The New STX and SQX Explosion Proof Actuators also benefit from enhanced security protocol and thanks to the INTELLI+ technology package, provide the user with secure access to a whole host of additional product benefits, such as alarm monitoring, partial stocking, ESD and “battery free technology”. As well as providing a flexible safety system maintenance feature for field-bus and critical maintenance programmes.
