Flowserve announced the launch of the newly developed 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 delivers 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+ features of the UEC-3. It also supports additional features including 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. “The new UEX electronic control module is built with proven Limitorque MX actuator technology and offers our customers expanded features to optimize control and performance for plant operations,” said Lynn White, general manager, Flowserve Limitorque product line.
