Any EA 20, EA 30, EA 41, or EA 50 actuator can be factory equipped or be retrofitted with any of these accessories.

MECHANICAL LIMIT SWITCHES - Light a light, sound an alarm, interface with a PLC or computer. The possibilities are endless. Contact and inductive limit switches provide reliable point verification of the actuator’s location.

POTENTIOMETER  -  Know the exact position of your actuator at all times with the potentiometer. Used for both 90 and 180 application with 0-1000 W or 0-2000 W potential in one unit.

POSITIONER/CONTROLLER - The positioner is used to have external control of the opening of the valve from a remote device - tech sheet  The controller is used continually adjusts the valve, based upon information from a sensor, to maintain a given condition as a set GPM rate.  See Type 110 control ball valve details for this type of application.  PDF file.

VARIO  -  With the  "Vario" speed control, you can step the motor electrically to the cycle time you need.  Set between 10 and 80 seconds

HEATER - For cold or damp environments, the heater is thermostatically controlled to maintain the actuator temperature between 32 F to 41 F (0 C to 5 C).

The FR 10 is a battery powered Fail Safe Return Unit. When a power loss of more than 0.5 seconds is detected by the main voltage sensor, the unit automatically disconnects the actuator from the main voltage and powers the valve to a pre-selected position; i.e. fail safe open or closed. When the main power supply returns, the actuator continues as normal. The FR 10 unit is capable of powering either one EA 20/EA 30 or one EA 41/50 electric actuators.  This system will use a 24VDC actuator -- power supply for FR 10 is 110 or 230 volt.  Detail in PDF file.
