AIG XS 2.0

May 2021

May 2021: the new AIG XS 2.0 arrives

3S Antriebe GmbH presents the new AIG XS. Just like its predecessor, it is an extremely powerful battery powered, mobile valve turning device (900 Nm, with booster 1,800 Nm). And just like its predecessor, it can record the condition of valves as they are actuated, storing the revolutions made along with the required torques precisely to the valve. New are the design and the software: as of now, the AIG XS communicates with the 3S Library via Bluetooth. The Library evaluates the measured valve status data and handles Bluetooth communication between the AIG XS and an App. The 3S Library can be integrated into existing Windows, Android and later IOS Apps with little programming effort. Apps with integrated 3S Library already exist for Android and Windows.

3S Multi-Turn Actuators

Your benefits

The 3S multi-turn actuators have been constructed particularly for butterfly and ball valves with gears as well as for gate valves. The actuators are waterproof and installed directly into the ground beneath a standard street cap or a manhole cover by utilizing the patented 3S earth placement or alternatively flanged directly onto the valve according to EN ISO 5210. The valve can still be operated manually via a standard square-end on top of the actuator.

In any case, manhole or underground construction is not necessary. This makes retroactive automation of buried valves economically feasible.

Rechargeable Battery Pack
- no external power supply / no recharging for approx. 12-18 months

Powerful Actuator
– für buried valves with a peak torque of 1,500 Nm

3S x-active Technology
- SCADA integration for remote management via telemetric units

System Berliner Kappe®
- in-soil installation without the need for manholes



3S AIG mobile

3S AIG mobile actuators for burried valves

Valve Exerciser and Maintenance Device

- recording of torques and turns + objective assessment of valve condition

Handheld and Lightweight

- only weighs 16,5 pounds and is operable by one person

High-Performance External Battery

- maintenance and exercising for a full work day without recharging

Powerful Mobile Actuator

- actuating buried valves with a peak torque of up to 1800 Nm

Your benefits

The mobile 3S mobile actuator is a powerful slider turning device. The intelligent 3S digital electronics revolutionize the maintenance of valves with 3S AIG XS.

The new development 3S AIG XS is significantly lighter and more manageable than its predecessor, the 3S AIG, and covers the requirements of small and medium-sized network operators. With the System Berliner Kappe® or the load power amplifier is the placement of large valves without the use of physical force possible.
