Beck Drives Electric Actuators
Beck damper drives and valve actuators have a well-earned reputation for superior control, high reliability, and outstanding low-maintenance durability. Over decades of service and across a variety of challenging industries, the world’s leading companies have relied on Beck. Beck’s products are engineered to meet the high performance standards of today’s sophisticated control instrumentation and are available in Australia and New Zealand exclusively through Acrodyne.
Beck’s products are designed for reliable, responsive control in modulating and open/close applications. Across the product line, Beck damper drives and valve actuators share the unique features that account for Beck’s unparalleled on-line performance.
Unique Motor Design: 100% Availability
The no-burnout Beck motor ensures that the drive is available 100% of the time. There are no duty cycle limitations typical of most electric actuators.
Figure 1: Tested in an active modulating loop, conventional motors rose rapidly in temperature, tripping thermal overload devices and becoming unavailable for extended time intervals. Only the Beck motor remained stable for continuous operation.
Superior Housing: Protection and Convenient Access to Components
Beck drives feature a cast aluminum body with individual compartments to protect components from moisture and dirt. They allow easy access for installation and calibration.
Durable Gear Train: High Accuracy Even Under Demanding Conditions
Beck’s durable gear train maintains accurate, consistent positioning even under the demanding conditions of an active control loop.
