Auto-Run Setup & Operation
Pneumatic signal ports can be used to drive pilot-operated valves or other control elements for auto-cycle or other functions. This operation is excellent for applications requiring very simple automation or if the actuator is to operate in hazardous areas such as explosive environments, where intrinsically-safe components are required.
Signal ports are additional components that are mounted onto an actuator's cylinders and are available as a special option for any Rotomation tie rod actuator, including rotary, indexing, stepping, pick-and-place, or nitpicker actuators. Make sure to specify this during the actuator configuration.
Please note that you may need additional plumbing components to setup auto-run operation and the 4-way valves need to be pilot-operated. See our information and setup sheet.
