Q
What is the difference between on-off and modulating control?
A
On-off control is when the actuator moves the valve from a fully open to a fully closed state or vice versa. A modulating actuator will take a control signal, typically 4-20mA, and position the valve ball or disc in intermediate positions to set a flow rate.
