3TERMS AND DEFINITIONS
For the purposes of this Standard, the following termsand definitions apply.
actuator: part of a component for the displacement ofthe movable parts of, for example, a shut-off valve oran electromechanical switching device.
actuating device: actuator consisting of several function-ally inlerrelaled components or elements,the descrip-tion of which nccds a diagram.
EXAMPLE An actuator consisting of a fluid or electric motor, asct of auxiliary contacts, and a measuring transducer transmittinginformation on the actual position of the actuated device.
mzanual actuator: actuator for opcration by human force.
autonatic: (control,operation) self-acting (not needinghunan intervention).
automatic acfuator: actuator activated without humanintervention.
EXAMPLE Actuation by a proccss variable or from a remote control unit.
automatic return device: device for returning movableparts, for example, those of a valve, to initial position (at-rest position) after an actuating force has been removed.
clutch: device for connecting and disconnecting workingparts, for example, of a machine.
deluy device: device providing a tine interval betweenthe instant when an actuating force is applied orremoved and the instant when the consequent changeof position or state of the affected parts sfarts.
detent: device that retains movable parts,for example,those of a valve, in a certain position until sufficientforce is applied to overcome the detaining force in orderto move the parts to another position.
