Designed for decentralised positioning tasks, the compact, intelligent AG05 actuating drive from SIKO easily carries out automatic adjustment of formats, stops, tools and valves as well as many other comparable positionings.
The AG05 can be flexibly integrated into various machine concepts: the easy start-up by a 2-line display is done either at the drive itself or via the bus communication. Features a stainless steel hollow shaft with a diameter of 14 millimetres. The robust, glass fibre-reinforced plastic housing with smooth surface is resistant to acid and leaches as far as possible.
