The Gate Valve Servo (GVS) is placed on already installed (angled) gate valves commonly used in central Europe. The hand wheel is removed and the GVS is placed on top of the valve stem instead. This allows remote control of the shut off valve using wireless commands. The wireless communication capabilities include several industry standards (Lora, Z-Wave, ULE) for easy integration into existing networks. The motor is powered by a 12 V external power supply or - optional – a battery block.
The device will be available in late Summer of 2020.
The Gate Valve Servo can receive commands directly from Flood Sensors and from the Aqua-Scope controller or other Smart Home System Gateways. The Z-Wave version implements the most recent protocol Z-Wave Plus V2. The Lora version supports both the standardized LoraWAN in Class B/C and a proprietary extension to communicate locally with battery operated actuators such as motor servos.
