The new cable drive actuator

The new cable drive actuator by Velan, it promises a cost-effective solution for quarter-turn systems

Velan ABV, the Velan subsidiary specialised in valve, actuators and control system design and production, has presented a new patent-protected cable drive actuator benefits from a transmission system with constant torque and high accuracy along the entire quarter-turn rotation at Valve World Conference & Expo 2016 in Düsseldorf. Its modular construction comprises a center body, pneumatic or hydraulic power cylinder and a spring cartridge for emergency action. It is the actuator’s newly designed center body with its revolutionary cable drive system that separates it from the standard scotch yoke actuator.
