RCS Actuator Rotary models (MAR-units) span a Torque range of 17 to 48, 000 in. lbs. Stroke speeds for quarter-turn valves range from 1.25 seconds to 3 minutes. Speeds for multi-turn actuators range from 7.5 to 30 RPM. RCS manufactures actuators with NEMA/CSA-4,NEMA/CSA-7 and combination 4/6/7 enclosures with various voltages of 120 1-ph.,50/60 Hz.,220 1-ph 50/60 Hz.,440 Volt 3-ph VAC. In direct current we have 12 & 24 VDC (DCR-Units).
The Spring-Return unit (SurePower) goes up to 1, 800 inch-pounds of spring-end torque.RCS Actuator MAR Series

In its fifth decade of production,RCS maintains a peerless reputation for performance,reliability,and versatility for the manufacture of quarter-turn and spring return electric actuators. Proudly made in America, Brenham,TX, since 1968,RCS actuators are designed to automate flow control devices for a wide and varied range of applications,from ball,butterfly,and plug valve automation to more specialized applications such as multi-turn and rotary choke valves. A comprehensive range of modular control accessories allows RCS electric actuators to be tailored to address the most complex process control requirements for either on-off,modulating or digital network protocols,and the extensive network of factory-trained authorized service centers provides aftermarket support for technical and application questions.

The aerodynamics are novel, combining vestigial cruciform wings with tail control surfaces of a lattice configuration (similar devices are used on the R-400 Oka). Each surface consists of a metal frame containing a blade-like grid assembly which combines a greater control area, and thus lifting force, with reduced weight and size. The development for this control concept took three years of theoretical work and testing. Referred to by the Russians as gas dynamic declination devices, these surfaces require less powerful actuators than conventional fins, and have a lower RCS
