The AXIOM® AX explosionproof, available in epoxy-coated anodized aluminum or stainless steel, is designed to perform reliably in adverse conditions. Its non-contact position sensing, with fully potted and sealed electronics, is completely protected inside the water-tight explosionproof enclosure. The integral pneumatic control is tolerant of contaminants and able to operate on standard plant air. A rebreather capability is also standard, eliminating potential ingestion of outside contaminants into the spring side of single-acting actuators.
The Axiom AX encloses all electrical components in an explosionproof compartment with less than five inches (130mm) clearance requirement above the mounting surface of the actuator. Additional clearance for cover removal is less than two inches (50mm) because there is no shaft to lift off.
One conventional model will satisfy most applications with standard 20 to 125 VAC or VDC monitoring feedback and solenoid control. Standard models also feature high flow 5-way, 2-position pneumatic control suitable for both single- and double-acting actuation.
This platform is extremely durable and is also well suited for use in corrosive, heavy washdown and high seas environments. The Axiom AX has a five-year comprehensive warranty on all components, unprecedented in the industry.
