Air remote control systems allow operation of various pneumatic functions from a single location. In contrast to electric controls, pneumatic controls are a reliable and cost-effective solution for greater safety and convenience in hazardous environments.
Working with pneumatics carries no risk of electrocution or arcing, which gives total safety in explosive environments. Assembly and maintenance require only basic knowledge.
PacSeal Hydraulics’ air remote control products include the control panel, hydra-pneumatic pressure transmitter, air cable assembly and shuttle valve. The remote control panel is connected to the hydraulic control unit by an air cable assembly (or hard-plumbed from the back of the panel manifold), which controls all pneumatic functions with only one actuator.
The air pressure signal is proportionally converted from a hydraulic pressure by the hydra-pneumatic pressure transmitter, which is displayed on a receiver gauge of the control panel. If more than one control panel is desired, use of shuttle valves will ensure that each panel is synchronized.
