actuators incorporate all of the high
quality and reliable features of the
the added benefits of a microprocessor-
based Enhanced Electronics Unit (EEU).
These additional benefits provide:
Faster set-up and commissioning
Health parameter monitoring for
proactive maintenance planning.
HercuLine 11280S Smart actuators
enable operation at maximum process
efficiency, minimal downtime, and
access to all actuator parameters for
real-time business decisions.
Honeywell's 11280S actuators are
industrial rated and engineered for very
precise positioning of dampers and
valves. The HercuLine 11280S
performs especially well in extremely
demanding environments requiring
continuous duty, high reliability, and low
maintenance. Typical applications are
ID/FD fan dampers, furnace pressure
dampers, coal mill dampers, burner tilts
continually monitor the performance,
health, and position of the actuator for
repeatable positioning and response to
A double reduction worm gear set
combines with a variable speed motor
controller (inverter) that is continuous
duty rated for accurate and repeatable
positioning of final control elements.
The worm gear set combination also
functions as a brake, capable of holding
greater than two times the output torque
in a back-driving condition.
Control options are available to
interface with a modulating 4-20 mA
input signal and 4-20 mA customer
feedback or remote setpoint through
Modbus. Internal balance, customer
feedback and patented slidewire
emulation is provided by a non-
contacting position sensor.
