The Accutronix MX is Limitorque΄s product entry in the non-intrusive, double-sealed, smart electronic actuator marketplace.
Introduced to International markets in 1997, the MX has been readily accepted into all major market segments, including Power Generation, Petro-chemical, and Water/Waste Water Treatment.
The Accutronix is the platform for current and future network developments, including Modbus DDC, Foundation Fieldbus H1, Profibus DP_V1 and, in fact, is the only smart actuator that offers Profibus_ PA.
The MX can easily be distinguished from other smart valve actuators with its patented absolute encoder that doesn΄t require battery back-up. Additional features include easy configuration in six languages, patented LimiGard circuitry, which safeguards the actuator from spurious electro-magnetic interference.
The MX can provide torque output of up to 1700 ft.lbs. Several other enhancements have been made to the current MX, including replacement of an outdated perforated through hole PCB controls set with SMT (Surface Mount Technology) controls in 2003. A new improved ACP (Actuator Control Panel) with recessed knobs has also replaced the original controls cover.
The Accutronix MX΄s place in the electronic actuator market was confirmed in 2003 when the Department Environmental Protection of the City of New York placed orders for more than 800 of these actuators. Many of these units are networked controlled utilizing the MX and Limitorque΄s recently introduced Master Station II.
