CORNELIUS, N.C., March 19, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Valworx announced today they introduced their new line of electric actuators - the 5618a series. Used for actuating quarter-turn ball valves, the 5618a series features several upgrades to the previous model, including:
- Highly visual dome-style position indicator
- CSA listed per UL 429 & CSA 22.2, CE mark
- 70 percent duty cycle
- Expanded temperature range (-22 F to +140 F)
- Long-life brushless motor for DC voltage EPS positioner models

The 5618a series is available for all Valworx valve types including stainless steel, lead-free brass and PVC ball valves. The actuators are available in positioner models, where the valve can be throttled via a 4-20mA control signal or simple on/off models. DC positioner models now feature a brushless motor which features a higher duty cycle and greater resolution.
All models feature rugged Type 4X/IP67 construction and come with a standard one-year limited warranty and lifetime technical support.
