Tagging function
The FSAF_A actuators provide true spring return operation for reliable fail-safe application and positive close-off on UL555S dampers. The spring return system provides constant torque to the damper with and without power applied to the actuator. The FSAF_A series provides 95° of rotation and is provided with a graduated position indicator showing 0 to 95°.
The FSAF_A series actuators are mounted to the damper axle shaft or jackshaft (1/2” to 1.05”) via a cold-weld clamp. Teeth in the clamp and V-bolt dig into the metal of both solid and hollow shafts maintaining a perfect connection. The specially designed clamp will not crush hollow shafts. The bottom end of the actuator is held by an anti-rotation strap or by a stud provided by the damper manufacturer. The actuator is mounted in its fail safe position with the damper blade(s) closed. Upon applying power, the actuator drives the damper to the open position. The internal spring is tensioned at the same time. If the power supply is interrupted, the spring moves the damper back to its fail-safe position. Note on linkage kits.The correct leg kit for the FSAF_A series is the older ZG-AF US as the actuator has a classic AF frame. However, the spline is the new generation type and the crank arm required is the KH-AFB.
Typical Specification
All smoke and combination fire and smoke dampers shall be provided with Belimo FSTF, FSLF, FSNF, or FSAF actuators. All substitutions must be approved before submission of bid. Damper and actuator shall have UL 555S Listing for 250°F &/or 350°F. Actuator shall have been tested to UL 2043 per requirements of IMC 602.2 and NEC 300.22 (c). Where position indication is required -S models with auxiliary switches or damper blade switches will be provided per code requirements.
Safety Notes
* Neither UL nor Belimo require local over-current protection. The FSAF_A actuators draw higher peak current when driving against any type of stop. After 10 seconds current drops to the lower holding level. If used, this requires the value of a local fuse or breaker to be increased to avoid nuisance opening or tripping. A 2 A slow blow should be used for 24 VAC. A 0.5 A slow blow should be used for 120 VAC. A 0.25 A slow blow should be used for 230 VAC and a 0.3 A slow blow for 208 VAC.
