ERV-750

Articulating arm, automated valve operator utilising patented intelligent automation to control torque, direction and turns. Twin arms (one telescoping) provide 13’ reach over 270 degrees of freedom while hydraulic disk brakes safely secure exerciser capable of 750’ lbs of torque. Constructed of 3” square steel tube and powder coated for long life. A light weight, telescoping valve key is also provided. A light weight, telescoping valve key is also provided.

Valve Machine Intelligent Automation

VMT utilises patented 'no assumption' automation technology to safely and effectively turn valves using AWWA recommended procedures. This technology protects the operators by keeping 'hands off' the machine while exercising the valve and protects the valve by not assuming size, direction, or current position. Allowing the machine to follow the path of least resistance, the programming and sensors automatically stop the rotation and reverse in half turn increments as to flush calcification from the valve gate. This patented automation always exercises valves at the minimum torque required to turn, then automatically lowers preset threshold once rotation begins so impact at end of valve is soft as possible. 

HC-100

Ruggedised PDA style handheld controller to operate and collect data for either arm (ERV-750) or slide (TM-6 upgraded & TM-7) style valve exercisers. Rugged handheld controller with built in GPS features a bright touch screen that is water resistant and meets military specifications. Available as a GPS upgrade kit 79-412-01 Pro 6T (Submeter) or 79-412-02 Pro 6H (Decimetre).

Data Management

Fully compatible with either VITALS or infraMap software packages which enable full data logging and synchronisation between the handheld and your desktop GIS. Allows importing of existing data labels and categories with user defined fields.
