Rotork’s proven IQ range of actuators now

includes absolute position measurement,
large information rich display, enhanced data
logging, status and asset management plus
additional control and indication features and
options. IQ range actuators are self-contained,
non-intrusive units for local and remote
electrical operation of valves.
IQ multi-turn actuator range:
• IQ – three-phase power supplies.
• IQS – single-phase power supplies.
• IQD – DC power supplies.
The IQ range comprises an electric motor, reduction gearing,
reversing starter, position and torque limitation with local
control and indication, remote control inputs and indication
outputs. Actuator enclosures are all double-sealed watertight
IP66 and IP68 (7 metres - 72 hours), NEMA 4 and 6. Enclosure
are also available suitable for use in Hazardous areas.
The following specification covers standard and optional
control and monitoring features. Options selected must be
specified with order.

Please refer to PUB091-003. network documentation.

Profibus connectivity is possible by fitting the Profibus DP
interface module within the IQ actuator. This allows the
IQ to be integrated into a standard Profibus network. Full
compatibility with the fieldbus standard EN 50170 is provided
and the module carries Profibus certification for inter-
operability. The network allows full control of the actuator
and feedback of status data to the host. The Rotork Profibus
module has two communication ports to facilitate redundant
fieldbus wiring where reliability is paramount, data rates up
to 1.5 M baud are supported.
Please refer to PUB088-001.

Foundation Fieldbus®
IQ actuators may be connected to a Foundation Fieldbus
network (H1) by the inclusion of a Rotork FF-01 module.
The device complies with fieldbus standard IEC 61158-2,
using a 2-wire electrical connection to the highway and has
been certified for inter-operability. The Foundation highway
exchanges data and control between devices and full actuator
functionality is available. Each actuator has full link scheduler
capability complete with function blocks for analogue and
digital inputs/outputs in addition to the standard transducer
block. Foundation fieldbus networks are capable of operating
without a host system as a supervisor, allowing the field
devices to communicate directly between themselves.
Please refer to PUB060-007.
