Apex Active Harmonic Filters include advanced features to ensure cost-effective power quality for variable frequency drive motors.

Active Filters are designed for dynamic reactive power compensation and harmonic filtering. Connected parallel to electrical loads, they sense distortion caused by non-linear loads and respond to cancel them out in real-time. They save money by improving power quality, increasing process reliability, and productivity while complying with power quality standards.


RTK REact EQ-L electric intelligent linear actuator for high-range force output is ideal for processes that depend on 100% running time, including industrial, chemical, and power applications. Corrosion-resistant variants have been specially designed for offshore applications. The electric actuator offers an all in one intelligent package for applications with opening/closing forces from 15/3,380 lbf to 30 kN/6,750 lbf.

The REact EQ-L opens the door for Industry 4.0 functionality and flexibility for multiple signal exchange systems in open digital protocols for process automation. Outfitted with RTK’s optimized REpos digital positioner, the actuator offers data logging functions and remote control through Profibus or CANopen. Using field device notification of diagnostic status, users can expect to conduct timely, status-based intervention to promote higher system availability and reduced maintenance costs.

The actuator makes it easy to replace old-school synchronous drive technology for industrial, chemical, power, and process actuation requirements. Using the newest brushless DC (BLDC) motor system, REact EQ-L offers high force and delivers up to 60% energy savings compared to synchronous drives. Other cost-saving features include over-force protection to prevent damage to the valve and actuator; reduction in maintenance due to 100% running time; and external LEDs indicating the actuating direction for easy monitoring. Also included is a smart controller with several adjustable and easily selectable preset speeds.

Approved for protection rating IP66 and NEMA 4x, CE design, and NRTL certification, REact EQ-L’s single gear unit-motor combination offers three different open/close force outputs; easy setup for worldwide voltage inputs and actuator protocols; and different speeds for different applications with only one motor and one gearbox.
