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 components mounted onto an actuator's cylinders and are available for any Rotomation tie rod actuator, including rotary, indexing, stepping, pick-and-place, or nitpicker. Specify this special option during the actuator selection process.
You may need additional plumbing components to setup auto-run operation, and the 4-way valves need to be pilot-operated. Download our auto-run information and setup sheet PDF below.
