AUMA’s more than 50 years of experience developing and manufacturing electric actuators has yielded a high-performance actuator series with exciting new features and an excellent cost-benefit ratio. Aimed at applications requiring fast and precise positioning, utmost flexibility and future-proof interfaces, the smart and compact PROFOX series is suitable for all industry sectors, including water treatment, combined heat and power plants, process industries, and shipbuilding.

Cunning. Built-in intelligence makes PROFOX equally suited to both simple open-close duty and challenging modulating applications. Motor speed is adjustable, ensuring fast and precise positioning without overrun. Soft start and soft stop functionality increases valve lifetime. Operating costs are low, thanks to high mechanical efficiency and low standby consumption. Innovative diagnostics ensure long-term availability and future-proof PROFOX actuators for IIoT applications.

Adaptable. AUMA PROFOX actuators work with gate, butterfly, ball and globe valves. There are multi-turn versions for torques of 10 – 100 Nm and part-turn versions delivering 32 – 600 Nm. A linear actuator will follow soon. Modular design ensures flexible configuration, rapid delivery and consistent operation. Host system integration is equally flexible; PROFOX actuators support the most common communication protocols and are well prepared for future evolutions. Compact design allows PROFOX actuators to fit tight spaces.

Hardy. The PROFOX series is engineered and built in Germany – and designed to last, even under the toughest process conditions. High-quality metal housing with IP67 protection (IP68 optional) and AUMA’s unique corrosion protection, which meets the highest C5-M/C5-I requirements of EN ISO 12944-6, ensure that PROFOX actuators have a long life at temperatures from –30 °C to +70 °C.

PROFOX actuators are simple and easy to use. Installation and commissioning are fast and convenient, using either the integral pushbuttons or an intuitive app. The FOX-EYE indicator light and a position indicator on the housing clearly show the actuator status at any time, even from a distance.

“The new PROFOX actuator series is set to lead the market thanks to its unique combination of features,” says AUMA product manager Christoph Edelmann. “It offers unprecedented intelligence, precision, efficiency and flexibility at a very attractive price.”
