Asahi/America, Inc. (Lawrence, MA) has recently expanded its Series 19 electric actuation line to include a multiturn unit capable of operating on diaphragm and gate valves up to 4”. The Series 19 MAV MultiPack multiturn actuator features accelerated cycle times ranging from 13 to 100 seconds and a smart feature that tracks the number of completed cycles. Like all Series 19 actuators, The Series 19 MAV MultiPack comes standard with multi-voltage capability, a visual position indicator, an LED light to indicate valve position or fault, and auxiliary contacts.
Controlled by firmware, the Series 19 MAV MultiPack is available in two packages as on/off or modulating unit. The MAV MultiPack mounts on Asahi/America Type-14 diaphragm valves and gate valves up to 4”. It includes a heater, one set of dry contacts for PLC confirmation and one for alarm reporting, OLED screen with push buttons, local controls and a QR code for easy and instant access to user manuals.
All Asahi/America Series 19 electric actuators have a corrosion resistant NEMA 4X engineered resin enclosure with stainless steel trim to protect the unit’s reversing, brushless DC motor and permanently lubricated steel gear train. The multi-voltage unit operates at a 70 percent duty cycle for more frequent cycling of the valve. Compatible with most PLCs, the Series 19 is an ideal choice for OEMs and skid manufacturers where space is at a premium, but power cannot be sacrificed.
