Flowserve Corporation (FLS - Analyst Report) recently launched a new Flowserve Limitorque UEX electronic control package for L120 series actuators. This newly developed electronic control package is field-retrofitable. Built with proven Limitorque MX actuator technology, the new feature is an improvement on the former package and replaces the previous UEC-3 electronic controllers.
The UEX package will deliver network connectivity through five network protocols for reliable process control, and will also include an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen for actuator setup. On-site retrofitting will reduce the plant downtime. The 32-character LCD screen will display activities relating to the status and position of the plant. It will also give prior indication of fault conditions.
