High torque rotary actuators

The ESBE ARC/ ARD series of high torque rotary low voltage motorized actuators provide a 90° operating range of rotation. This series of actuators is suitable for assembly to ESBE series 3F and 4F valves that range from 2” to 6” in size and alternatively applied as damper actuators. The appropriate mounting kit to assemble the motorized actuator to either an ESBE valve or a damper are included. For the ARD actuator series, incorporated into its design is a spring return, i.e. safety function, to rotate the valve to a close position in the event of power failure or removal of signal.

Features and benefits

Increased torque ability (in comparison to 90 Series motorized actuators), to overcome a high differential pressure across the valve.

  • ARC: 265.5 in-lb (30 Nm)
  • ARD: 177 in-lb (20 Nm)

Included mounting kits specific for ESBE Type F valves and damper square or round shafts.

Safety spring close function feature: ARD269.

2-point spring close function: ARD257.

Direct mount actuator design with included mounting kit.

Easy manual override of motorized actuator.

Adjustable limitation of 90° rotation on opening or closing.

Low voltage power supply 24VAC or 24VDC, pre-wired with wire whip.
