Enter all digits of Torque Value
1 – 115 vac
2 – 24 vac
3 – 220 vac
4 – 12 vdc
5 – 24 vdc
0 – Standard
A – One extra switch & cam
B – Two extra switches & cams
C – Three extra switches and cams
D – Heater and Thermostat (15 watt)
F – Motor Brake (115 VAC & 24 VAC Only)
P - Positioner 4-20 mA
T - Transmitter 4-20 mA
Note: AE will always be the first two characters of the part number, all digits from torque value must be entered into part number (i.e. 400, 1000 etc.)
Only use one digit for voltage depiction (i.e. 1-5). For the options listing you may use more than one character, up to three, (i.e. O, AD or BD etc.)
AE-400-3BF : 400 lb. in.; 220 VAC; 2 extra switches and cam, motor brake
AE-1000-1D : 1000 lb. in.; 115 VAC; Heater and thermostat
1 Year warranty on positioner & positioner with transmitter
12 VDC not available with positioner
Transmitter available with (P) positioner option only
Positioner & Transmitter are not CSA listed
Actuators and Controls
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.
Five Output Torques, One Housing
• 200, 400, 600, 800 and 1,000 inch-pounds
• Long Service Life
• Newly developed anodized die cast aluminum housing
• Fiberglass reinforced nylon cover resists corrosion
• Nitrile gasket 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
• 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 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 100% duty
cycle for 1 hour after which DC motor is reduced to 80%
duty cycle.
• Reversible rotation
Broad Temperature Range
• Operates from -40˚F (when equipped with 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
• Motor brake is necessary when mounting actuator to a
butterfly valve
4-20mA Positioner Features (P - Option)
Advanced Protection Features
A) Stall Detection
Motor will not burn out from stalling
B) Fault Signal
a. Fault LED on DHC-100 front panel
C) Duty Cycle Protection
a. Allows actuators rated for 25% duty, or more, to be safely
b. 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
A) High Resolution (± 0.1°)
a. 450 points of resolution on a 1/4 turn valve
B) Dynamic Braking
a. Stops motor before changing actuator direction
b. Stops motor before mechanical brake engages, which
reduces break wear
C) 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 Positioner Features (T - Option)
A) High Resolution Feedback Transmitter
a. 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)
B) Auto/Manual Station (Local Control Unit - LCU)
C) Polarity Detection
