General Controls Linear and Rotary Actuators
General Controls actuators are self-contained, gear driven, all electric units powered by an integral, reversing capacitor type motor. Motor rotary motion is converted to ram linear motion with minimum loss in efficiency and output by rotation of an anti-friction screw to drive a travelling nut. Control signals can be from a SPDT switch with or without a neutral position – ram action can be inched, stopped or reversed at any point between full retract and full extend position. The heavier duty models (DL66) are equipped with an integral electric brake
The General Controls models of these actuators are DL64 and DL66
There is also the General Controls Rotor Actuator series DM8 for electric operation of dampers, plug valves, ball valves and butterfly valves.
