We believe in offering our installers expert support. No matter if it’s the first time you try one of our products, or if you run into extremely challenging situations.
Please use the Selection Guide for combination of ESBE actuators and Controllers to ESBE valves.
For VRG valves we recommend to use actuators ARA600 series. However, besides valve type it is very important to know the correct control signal. Actuators can be driven by 2-point, 3-point or proportional signal and have a power supply of 24V or 230V. Most boiler controllers are using 3-point control signal with 230V power supply, but we highly recommend checking proper actuator parameters in boiler or controller manual.
- Set the valve in midposition. Examples are in the valve user instruction
- Assembly the actuator on the valve according to actuator user instruction
- Power up the actuator first after you are sure about correct assembling
The actuators and valves are always delivered in midposition from ESBE.
If the actuator is not in midposition
- Set the actuator in manual mode and set in midposition
- Assembly the actuator on the valve
- Change the actuator back to originale position and set in automatic mode
Follow these steps:
With the green adjusting cam you are changing when the auxiliary switch will be activated/deactivated.
By shifting the jumpers/brackets on the circuit board, e.g. from horizontal to vertical.
See the instructions manual in the packaging, or on our website for more information.

Yes, it is possible. Series 90 actuators with 3-point and 2-point control signal has a settable operating range between 30 up to 180°, the type 95-270M up to 270°.
For the proportional versions the settable operating range is:
- between 30-90º for version 92P
- between 30-180º for version 92P2
- between 180-355º for version 92P4
Please note, this feature is not made for adjusting the actuator to a wrongly adjusted valve. All ESBE actuators and controllers (not the 92P4) are delivered in the mid position. Before the actuator is mounted, please set also the valve in mid position.
The 90P comes with predefined running times for different working angles:
120s / 90s / 60s
240s / 180s / 120s
For all running times and working angles following control signals can be set:
0-10V / 2-10V / 0-5V / 0-20mA / 4-20mA / 0-10mA / 2-10mA
Working direction can be set on the DIP switch no. 5.
For clockwise direction of movement, switch should be set to the left. For counterclockwise direction of movement, switch should be set to the right.
To set the actuator operating angle, direction and running time, as well as control signal, please follow the instruction manual where all DIP switches and its position are explained.
DIP 1 and 2 – setting of the working angle
DIP 3 and 4 – setting of the running time
DIP 5 – setting of working direction
DIP 6 and 7 – setting of the control signal
DIP 8 – setting of the control signal (voltage or current)
By changing the operating angle on the DIP switch, an additional adjustment on the rotating disk is needed – this allows the actuator to move according to the DIP switch settings and end switches will stop the valve in the right position.
(follow the instruction manual)
No, the handle should be removed when angle is set or above 180°.
