Actuators (Electrical) Interlocks

Interlock description

In order to include electrical actuated valves into valve interlocked operating procedures and sequences, Alcatraz Interlocks has designs that
meet these requirements.

The AEL is a mechanical interlocking system for Rotork electrical quarter turn and multi-turn actuators. It mechanically blocks (locks) the power switch (supply) and the manual override of the actuator.
