Installation of the valve with the actuator is allowed in horizontal position or upwards. Installation downwards is not allowed. Use the 57 mm castellated nut (supplied) to ﬁt the actuator to the valve body. While the actuator is being ﬁtted, a 8mm Allan key can be used to tighten the pinch screw in the valve body ring to stop the valve turning.
Allow for necessary clearance for maintenance purposes.
Electrical connections can be accessed by removing the actuator cover. Two cable gland entries with thread (M20 x 1.5 and M16 x 1.5) are prepared for cable glands.
Note: Cable and cable gland used must not compromise the actuator’s IP rating, and must ensure the connectors are fully strain relieved. Please observe local rules and regulations as well.

Automatic self stroking feature
When power is ﬁrst applied, the actuator will automatically adjust to the length of the valve stroke. Subsequently, the self stroking feature can be re-initialised by changing position of SW9.
The red diagnostic LED is located on the pcb under the cover. It provides indication of three operational states: Actuator Healthy (Permanently ON), Self Stroking (Flashes once per second), Error (Flashes 3 times per second – seek technical assistance).
DIP switch setting
The actuator has a function selection DIP switch under the removable cover. In particular, if SW6 is set to ON, the actuator will perform as 3-point actuator.
The switch provides the following functions:
SW1: U/I – Input signal type selector:
If set to OFF position, voltage input is selected. If set to ON position, current input is selected.
SW2: 0/2 – Input signal range selector:
If set to OFF position, the input signal is in the range from 2 V to 10 V (voltage input) or from 4 mA to 20 mA (current input). If set to ON position, the input signal is in the range from 0 V to 10 V (voltage input) or from 0 mA to 20 mA (current input).
SW3: D/I – Direct or inverse acting selector:
If set to OFF position, stem retracts as voltage increases. If set to ON position, stem extends as voltage increases.
SW4: —/Seq – Normal or sequential mode selector:
If set to OFF position, the actuator is working in range 0(2)..10V or 0(4)..20mA. If set to ON position, the actuator is working in sequential range; 0(2)..5 (6)V or (0(4)..10 (12)mA) or (5(6)..10V)or (10(12)..20mA).
SW5: 0..5V/5…10V – Input signal range in sequential mode:
If set to OFF position, the actuator is working in sequential range 0(2)..5 (6)V or 0(4)..10 (12)mA. If set to ON position, the actuator is working in sequential range; 5(6)..10V or 10(12)..20mA.
SW6: Prop./3-pnt – Modulating or 3-point mode selector:
If set to OFF position, the actuator is working normally according to control signal. If set to ON position, the actuator is working as 3-point actuator.
When DIP switch SW6 is set to ON than all functions from other DIP switches become inactive.
SW7: LOG/LIN – Equal percentage or linear ﬂow through valve selector1:
If set to OFF position, the ﬂow through valve is equal percentage. If set to ON position, the ﬂow through valve is linear according to control signal.
SW8: 100% Kvs /Reduced Kvs
To be set to OFF position.
Changing this switch position will cause the actuator to go through a self stroking cycle.
Complete the mechanical and electrical installation and perform the necessary checks and tests:
The unit is now fully commissioned.
Commissioning / testing feature
The actuator can be driven to the fully open or closed positions (depending on valve type) by connecting SN to terminals 1 or 3.
The manual operation is applied by rotating the 8 mm Allan key (not supplied) to the required position. Observe the direction of rotation symbol.
Note: Actuator will restore position required by Y signal.
