1 Product Bulletin 480 Series Actuators :480. D100091X012 April 2018. Fisher 480 Series Yokeless Piston Actuators Fisher 480 Series Actuators are Yokeless Piston Actuators that are used in either throttling or on-off applications with ball valves, butterfly valves, louvers, dampers, and rheostats. They require pneumatic pressure loading from double-acting positioners ( Fisher 3570) or from on-off loading and unloading devices. Features n actuator Versatility actuator with or without positioners and snubbers is available in an assortment of sizes, stroking speeds, thrusts, and travels to handle most control requirements. W1867. n Compact Design Yokeless construction permits a Fisher 480-15 Piston actuator low-profile assembly by allowing close coupling to the control device; either through a bracket or, with some versions, by direct mounting on a bonnet flange. n Wide Range Supply Pressure Capability The actuator Frequency cylinder (and 3570 positioner if used) can operate with supply pressures as low as bar (35 psig) or Response as high as bar (150 psig).
2 Figure 3 shows how various size Actuators respond when the input supply pressure is cycled at small amplitude (3 to 5 percent) and increasing frequency. n Long Stroke Actuators have maximum rated travels of up to 206 mm ( inches). Assume the cycling supply pressure and the movement of the actuator rod are represented by sine waves. As the actuator rod is forced to move faster, its n Positioner Versatility Positioner/ actuator action is motion begins to fall behind the input in both time easily reversed in the field with no additional parts. (shown as phase lag) and amplitude (shown as Positioner sensitivity, travel span, and travel starting normalized gain). Both of these parameters are point are factory set and need to be reset only if affected by the inertia of the actuator and, operating conditions have changed or if the consequently, changes are more pronounced in the positioner has been reversed.
