Hayward Flow Control Systems” is offering a new line of CE and CSA Approved reversing, quarter-turn actuators with a number of unique features not found on other electric actuators. Available in both on/off and proportional control models, the EPM Series Actuators are designed for use with all ball and butterfly valves up to 24 inches in size and torque outputs from 300-13,500 in. lbs. Unique EPM features include a modular design that utilizes US-manufactured modular PC boards to eliminate 90 percent of internal wiring for higher quality, reliability, easier maintenance, and an epicyclical gear design that provides dependable torque transmission in a compact, quiet, smooth package. Other features include advanced thermal management that utilizes proprietary microprocessor-based algorithms to automatically control motor temperatures in real time with close-loop feedback, and user-selectable data logging and diagnostics for a variety of control functions through use of a joystick/menu interface. Other standard features include four limit switches (two auxiliary) internal low-power heater, position indicator, self-locking drive, clutchless manual override, thermal overload protection, ISO 5211 mounting base, and choice of operating voltages. Options include positioners, extended-duty motors, two additional auxiliary switches, local control station, and power-supply flexibility.
