    The test shall be carried out on electrically operated valve actuators with blocked output.

    7.19.2

     

    Valve actuators and similar motor-operated devices that, during their operating life, are not normally subjected to a stalled condition shall be subjected to the test requirements of Clause 7.19.3.

    7.19.3

     

    The device shall be tested at the voltage specified in Clause 7.2, with the output blocked for 24 hrs. The temperature shall be recorded during the first hour, and at 24 hours.  If the motor is thermally protected, the limits for the first test hour and after the first test hour are specified in Tables 2 and 3 of CSA C22.2 No. 77.

    The temperature of motors with impedance protection shall not exceed 150 °C if they are Class A insulated, or 175 °C if Class B, F, or H when tested for 72 hours under locked rotor conditions.

    7.19.4

     

    At the end of the test, the actuator shall comply with the following:

    a) There shall be no emission of any flame or molten material during the test.

    b) There shall be no damage to the control and it shall meet all the applicable requirements of this Standard.

    c) At the completion of the test, the device shall pass the dielectric strength test specified in Clause 7.6.
