Hexacon III General Description

The Hexacon III controller allows for the control and operation of up to six Eclipse valve actuators. In the event of an emergency, a signal from a leak detector, panic shutoff switch or any other external contact closure will begin the rapid shut off process. The system closes a typical valve opened one full turn in about one second, substantially limiting the size of a chemical release. The controller’s DC power system provides up to 3 days of continuous battery backup to keep your feed system protected even in the event of an AC power interruption.

Eclipse Actuator

The Eclipse™ emergency valve actuator automatically closes chlorine or sulfur dioxide ton container and 150 lb cylinder valves in the event of a system leak or emergency.

Junction Box

Junction Box for extending actuator cable lengths. NEMA 4X/UL listed, color coded screw terminal connectors for joining actuator cables to conduit wires.

Chlorine Ton Container Adapter

Chlorine Ton Container Adapter. Allows Eclipse and Terminator valve actuators to be used with vacuum regulators that require adapters.

VR Extension

VR Extension for Direct Mount Vacuum Regulators. Allows both the Eclipse actuator and the vacuum regulator to be mount-ed to the same ton container valve.
