Functional, reliable, effortless to operate and made of stainless steel - an electric rotary actuator for setting and positioning operation with the intuitive maxone one-button operating concept. The BEA©max displays all important penstock and actuator information at a glance, offers exceedingly powerful torque and, with its sophisticated functionalities, is designed for lasting reliability.
When standard functional requirements are appreciated and desirable in an actuator without unnecessary gimmicks. Nevertheless, value is placed on modern, intuitive and effortless operator guidance. And the product is consistently designed with high-quality materials for lasting reliability, then the BEAmax is the maximum actuator for controlled operation.
The "Operating mode" dialog window is the central element (Home) of the maxone display and operating concept. All current and decisive information on the actuator and the penstock can be read at a glance, such as: selected control, pending messages, current position, current torque, end positions, set tripping torques for opening or closing, active travel movements as well as buttons for local operation. The structured basic division of the dialog windows into three main elements (information area, dialog area, button bar) allows easy navigation through the underlying menu structure.
The one-button principle enables simple operation on site. Turning the button selects an element in the displayed dialog box. The respective selection is confirmed by pressing the button.
The simple and well thought-out handling can already be illustrated with the four most important dialog windows:
An actuator reduced to the essentials for user-friendly operability and reliable operation. Above all, this means a well thought-out combination of all the relevant information required to operate a penstock. Daily practice sets the challenges. The BEA©max is prepared.
The "Operating mode" dialog window:
The BEA©max and its enduring high torque:
Contactless recording of current actual torque as well as the direction of rotation and the resulting penstock position. In combination with a rechargeable battery integrated in the actuator, the position of the penstock to be actuated is reliably detected even in the case of a power failure (integrated emergency concept). This makes the BEA©max predestined for critical infrastructures in the age of increasingly frequent cyberattacks.
BEA©max represents a robust actuator with endurance. High demands do not necessarily mean a larger actuator and higher costs. Due to the maximum torque that can be accessed over the entire running time of up to one hour, even the smallest size 060 of the BEA©max can be used for a wide range of applications. In addition, it enables safe multiple actuation of penstocks in emergency situations - without forced cooling time of the actuator.
The emergency concept of the BEA©max:
The display is switched off in case of power failure (sleep mode) and the control electronics is supplied by rechargeable batteries. With the help of the handwheel coupling and the integrated rechargeable battery, the display can be activated and the current penstock position can be viewed in the main "Operating mode" dialog window. The position is also registered when the handwheel is actuated.
All events relevant to the operation of the actuator are recorded by means of real-time recording. This function supports the operator of the actuator in analyzing a fault directly at the actuator.
The adaptable control and networking of the BEA©max:
with constant maximum torque
Continuous recording of torque and penstock position
Power supply of the control electronics via rechargeable batteries in case of power failure - activation of the display and position detection via handwheel
