Building automation typically requires controlling heating and cooling water flow in the HVAC system. Here's an introduction to controlling water flow using an actuator mounted directly on the valve.
In this lesson, learn how to wire a valve actuator. We will show you wire power and an output module to the actuator, mount the actuator on the valve, and control it using a control program. You also may want to use data from the valve in other ways.
See Automation 101: Wire a Valve Actuator (webpage) for a parts list, technical documents, wiring diagrams and more information.
