Default Help finding a old manual

I'm looking for a bailey 404 pneumatic damper drive manual. I've looked all over online and abb (who bought bailey) doesn't have anything on their site.

sometimes you may have better luck searching by typing in the model number first then the brand name.
is this a solenoid or a rotary actuator?


pneumatic devices are usually made with three different switching methods!
an electrical solenoid actuated pilot valve, hydraulic actuated, or a pneumatic actuated pilot valve
with either one you have to have dry, oiled air supply! (and this is crucial)
water contamination of any kind can cause rust buildup that can seize the valves up and damage o-rings
the inherent weakness of an electrical solenoid actuator is that rust buildup can cause the coil to burn out.
hydraulic actuated systems require neoprene o-rings as most hydraulic fluids don't play very nice with natural rubbers and are far more sensitive to water contamination.

I believe the model number is AC0404. It's purely pneumatic and uses a cam to characterize the output and a little pilot to balance the pressure across a piston. I'm trying to prove a point to a coworker and documentation helps.
