Apollo Valves AE Series

Ruggedly Built and Designed For Easy Installation

New Apollo AE Series electric actuators deliver the most standard features and performance in their class. Now CSA listed all sizes as standard.

Apollo Valves AE Series


Five Output Torques, One Housing

  • 200, 400, 600, 800, and 1,000 inch-pounds
  • Long service life
  • Anodized die-cast aluminum housing
  • Fiberglass reinforced nylon cover resists corrosion
  • Nitrile gaskets and seals cover all penetration points in housing and cover
  • Precision cut and heat-treated alloy spur gears
  • Permanently lubricated enclosed gear train
  • NEMA 4, 4X

Easy to Use

  • Two separate 1/2” NPT conduit entrances for easier wiring and signal separation
  • 12-position pre-wired terminal strip includes standard connections for remote open/closed position indicators; lots of room for wiring options
  • Unrestricted mounting orientation
  • Built-in thermal overload protection in all AC motor actuators
  • Limit switches have an 11 amp rating at 115 VAC
  • High visibility valve position indicator standard on all models

Many Standard Features

  • Stainless steel push-and-turn manual override shaft, position indicator shaft, and female output
  • ISO 5211 F07 drive output reduces the inventory of mounting kits
  • 115 AC & 220 AC models feature a 25% duty cycle below 100˚F (24AC — 20% duty cycle below 100˚F)
  • 12 and 24 DC — all DC voltage models provide a 100% duty cycle for 1 hour after which the DC motor is reduced to an 80% duty cycle.
  • Reversible rotation

Broad Temperature Range

  • Operates from -40˚F (when equipped with a 15-watt heater and thermostat) to 150˚F

Available Options

  • Actuators can be ordered with one, two, or three additional limit switches
  • For low temperatures: actuators can be equipped with a thermostatically controlled heater element
  • A motor brake is necessary when mounting the actuator to a butterfly valve

4-20MA Positioner Features (P - OPTION)

Advanced Protection Features

  • Stall Detection - The motor will not burn out from stalling
  • Fault Signal - Fault LED on DHC-100 front panel
  • Duty Cycle Protection - Allows actuators rated for 25% duty, or more, to be safely modulated. Activates prior to tripping of thermal overload protector, which prevents long shut down periods due to tripping thermal overload protector; allows the actuator to continue to move to set-point at a 25% duty cycle speed.

Performance Features

  • High Resolution (± 0.1°) 450 points of resolution on a 1/4 turn valve
  • Dynamic Braking - Stops motor before changing actuator direction. Stops motor before mechanical brake engages, which reduces brake wear Adaptive Control - Designed to maintain high resolution and accuracy by continuously monitoring and compensating for actuator backlash, motor coast, and load changes to eliminate positioner deadband

4-20MA Position Transmitter Features (T - Option)

  • High-Resolution Feedback Transmitter - Provides voltage or mA output that can be set for any range (0 to 10 VDC in 0.0016 V steps or 0 to 20 mA in 0.0031 mA steps)
  • Auto/Manual Station (Local Control Unit - LCU)
  • Polarity Detection
