Auma Profox wins Primus Award 2021

Auma’s new Profox actuator series is the winner of this year’s Primus Award in the actuators category.
“We are delighted that our Profox actuator has found such a positive response,” says Michael Sick, Auma Head of Sales Germany. “Profox sets new standards for compact actuators – they are smart, have an excellent cost-benefit ratio, and they’re ideally suited for modern plant automation. The fact that Profox has won the Primus Award shows that our new product is a great match for the needs of the market.”
The Primus Award is given by German valve industry magazine ‘Industriearmaturen+Dichtungstechnik’ in cooperation with the German valve industry exhibition DIAM. Its three prizes honour the best products in actuators, valves, and seals, respectively.
Profox actuators offer future-proof valve automation for any type of valve. These new actuators for lower to medium torque ranges are ideally suited for all industry sectors, including water treatment, cogeneration plants, process industries, and shipbuilding. Designed as a modular platform including multi-turn, part-turn and, soon, linear actuators, Profox offers utmost flexibility and uniform operation across all device types.
Profox actuators are simple and easy to use. Installation and commissioning are fast and convenient, using the free Auma Assistant App. The Fox-Eye indication light and a position indicator on the housing clearly show the actuator status, even from a distance.
Innovative diagnostic functions, easy data transfer, for example to the Auma Cloud, and modern interfaces future-proof Profox for IIoT applications.
Built-in intelligence makes Profox equally suited to challenging modulating applications. Adjustable motor speed allows for fast and precise positioning. Well-conceived details and robust, high-quality design ensure a long service life, even under the toughest process conditions – and all this at an attractive price.
