Flowserve Corporation launched the Flowserve Limitorque UEX electronic control package for L120 series actuators. The UEX replaces existing UEC-3 electronic controllers with a field-retrofitable, MX technology-based package. The UEX can also be installed into L120 electric actuators that are equipped with integral control packages.
The UEX was designed to deliver state-of-the-art actuation and network connectivity through five network protocols for reliable process control, and incorporates all of the UEC-3 functionality, including the 20-plus features of the UEC-3. Additional features include an LCD display for actuator setup, status indication in 11 languages and position feedback via a battery-free, absolute encoder.
On-site retrofitting is designed to minimize plant downtime, aided by an easy-to-use setup through the UEX's 32-character LCD screen. The LCD screen provides actuator status and diagnostics, displaying continuous position indication and fault conditions.
