Product Highlight: Controls

Do you need to know if your actuator is open or closed?

Let our new Actuator Indicator System keep an eye on it for you.  It is tied back to your SCADA ( Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system and can be modified to fit your specific actuator.

Always be in control.
