Important Notes
• Please read this manual in its entirety before attempting to install or operate your MX actuator. A full understanding
of the installation and operation options will assist you in installing the actuator in the most effective manner.
Limitorque has designed the MX actuator for long life even in the harshest environments. Flexible control and
protection options are provided to ensure the actuator meets your requirements.
• All actuator enclosures are sealed by O-rings, and cable entries are supplied with threaded plugs to protect the
terminal compartment until the unit is wired. If the actuator cannot be installed immediately, it is recommended that
it be stored in a clean, dry place, preferably in an area that is not subject to large fluctuations in temperature.
• Disconnect all incoming power before opening any cover on the actuator. The user/operator must ensure that safe
working practices are employed at all times and are in accordance with local or national standards that are enforced
at the particular site.
8
• To install and commission the actuator, only the terminal compartment cover needs to be removed. See Figure
1.1, Item 10. Settings for commissioning the actuator are done externally; therefore, no other covers need to be
removed. The actuator was assembled in ideal dry conditions and the total sealing of the enclosure protects all
electrical components against deterioration.
Limitorque MX Electronic Actuator FCD LMENIM2306-05 – 10/13
NOTE: Removal of any cover, other than the terminal compartment cover, will invalidate the unit warranty. Exposure
of actuator components to an environment that results in deterioration of internal components will also invalidate the
unit’s warranty.
• During final field installation, ensure that all cable entries are correctly sealed in accordance with National Standards
or Regulatory Authorities. All temporary transit plugs must be removed and any unused cable entries closed in an
approved manner. See Section 3.3.3, Sealing Cable/Conduit Entries.

Quick Start
Quick Start provides step-by-step instructions for commissioning each MX actuator. This information is also available in
Bulletin LMENIM2310, Quick Start-Up Instructions. These instructions are for the following:
• Position limits calibration – can be performed one of two ways:
1. Electrical operation: See Section 2.1.2, Electrical Operation Feature.
2. Handwheel operation: See Section 2.1.3, Handwheel Operation Feature.
• DDC operation: See Section 2.2, DDC Option.
• FF operation: See Section 4.10, FF Option.
• PB operation: See Section 4.11, PB Option.
• DeviceNet operation: See Section 4.12. DN Option.
When these Quick Start instructions are complete, the position limits will be set and the actuator will be ready for
normal operation.
NOTE: The actuator has been configured with all customer-specified parameters and no further calibration should be
necessary. If full valve data was not provided when ordering, or if changes are needed for parameters, see Sections 3.5
and 6, Commissioning the Actuator and Customizing the Actuator.
2.1 Calibrate – Position Limits
1. Install the MX actuator on the valve.
2. Refer to the nameplate for the correct main power supply voltage. Switch on the main power to the unit.
3. Turn the red knob to the STOP position. The “SET CLOSE POSITION LIMIT” message will be displayed. When the
red knob is in “LOCAL” or “REMOTE,” the liquid crystal display (LCD) screen will read “SET POSITION LIMITS.”
4. Calibrate end position limits one of two ways:
• Electrically, using the control panel. See Section 2.1.2, Electrical Operation Feature.
• Manually, using the handwheel. See Section 2.1.3, Handwheel Operation Feature.
Once the position limits have been set, the screen message will indicate the valve position as a percentage of the valve
opening.
10
While setting limit switches, place the red selector knob in the “LOCAL” position to permit the actuator to run open or
closed in push-to-run mode (inching) only.
a CAUTION: Extreme care must be taken as the valve approaches its end position.
The unit will not function with the red selector knob in the “REMOTE” position until both limit switches are set.
Limitorque MX Electronic Actuator FCD LMENIM2306-05 – 10/13
The existing configuration of the actuator/valve parameters may be viewed by entering the “SETUP” mode.
2.1.1 Entering the Setup Mode
1. Place the red selector knob in the “STOP” position.
2. Within 10 seconds, place the black control knob in the “YES” position, then the “NO” position, then again in the
“YES” position (in quick succession—approximately one-two seconds).
3. The message “SETUP?” will appear in the LCD display for 10 seconds. If no setup action is taken within 10
seconds, the unit will reset.
4. Use the black control knob to answer “YES” or “NO” to the questions appearing in the display.
2.1.2 Electrical Operation Feature
This feature allows for quick and simple calibration. To set the position limits electrically, enter the “CHANGE SETTINGS”
mode via the “SETUP” mode.
1. Enter the “SETUP” mode as detailed in Section 2.1.1, Entering the Setup Mode.
2. When screen prompt reads “CHANGE SETTINGS,” select “YES.”
3. The screen will display the “CHANGE SETTINGS” mode menu items. Select “NO” until screen displays “CHANGE
POSITION SETUP.” User may select to set close limit first or open limit first.
4. Select “YES.” “CLOSE” or “OPEN VALVE - OK?” is displayed.
5. Place the red selector knob in the “LOCAL” position. Move the black knob in the intended direction. The LCD
screens are shown in Figure 2.1.
6. When valve has reached desired position, return the red selector switch to “STOP” and complete calibration.
The position settings are now complete. The actuator will now function as ordered, and may be run electrically to
inspect for correct operation.
a CAUTION: On some valves, position limits could be set adjacent to each other, so be careful that the Close and
Open limits are set sufficiently apart to permit operation. If the limits are set adjacent of each other, an error
message will be displayed: “KEEP OPEN(CLOSE) LIMIT?”
NO FURTHER MOVEMENT IS PERMITTED UNTIL THE ERROR IS CORRECTED.
Should the User elect to proceed with the setting, an error will be displayed on the screen after re-booting
stating “IDENTICAL LIMITS”. THE ACTUATOR WILL NOT MOVE UNTIL THE ERROR IS CORRECTED.

Installation and Operation
3.1 Preparing the Stem Nut
The MX has two (2) basic base designs:
• Torque-only base, designated by a “B” prefix
• Thrust-only base, designated by an “A” prefix
3.1.1 Type “B” Bases: Torque-only Applications
Standard B4/B4E Base
The standard MX actuator base is the B4 torque-only. It includes a mounting plate and steel torque nut, which may
be machined to fit a valve or gearbox. A B4E torque nut can be provided and may be installed to allow for extended
stem acceptance.
NOTE: Some MX actuators are supplied with single piece drive sleeves that have been bored and keyed. These are
typically mounted directly to gearboxes. The MX actuator maybe mounted in any position as long as the handwheel
is accessible.

echanical Installation Onto Valve or Gearbox
NOTE: Refer to MX Maintenance and Spare Parts bulletin (LMENIM2314) for more detailed instructions.
Before installing the actuator onto a valve or gearbox, check the following to ease installation:
• Verify that mounting flange is suited dimensionally to mate with the actuator base. Ensure that it is perpendicular to
the valve stem or gearbox input shaft.
• Ensure the stem nut mates with the valve stem or input shaft. For screwed nuts, it is advisable to run the stem nut
down the entire length of the stem to check for tightness. Keyed or splined shafts should exhibit a smooth, sliding fit
with the key installed.
• Ensure there is adequate engagement of the stem nut with the valve stem or input shaft when mounted. Generally, the
minimum length of engagement is 1.5 times the diameter of the stem.
• Verify that mounting studs or bolts are the correct length to suit the thickness of the mounting plate.
• Verify hardware specifications for English style:
• Socket head cap screw per ASTM A 574 and ANSI 18.3.
• Hex head cap screw per SAE J429 Grade 5.
• Verify hardware specifications for metric style: hex and socket head cap screws per Property Class 12.9.
• Clean and lubricate the valve stem or input shaft.
• Ensure adequate lifting facilities and slings are available at the installation site.
NOTE: Do not use the handwheel to lift the actuator.

3.3 Electrical Connections
Verify that the supply voltage details on the nameplate are correct for this installation. Setup is non-intrusive; therefore,
remove only the terminal cover to make electrical connections and to commission the actuator.
c WARNING: The removal of any other covers without Limitorque’s approval will void the warranty. Limitorque
will not accept responsibility for any damage or deterioration that may occur as a result of cover removal.
3.3.1 Removing Terminal Cover
Remove the terminal cover as follows:
1. Remove the four cover screws using a 6 mm hexagonal wrench.
2. Remove the cover. XP units have long-spigoted covers and two tapped holes 180° apart. If the XP cover is difficult
to remove, fit two of the cover screws into the tapped holes in the cover flange and jack out the cover. Take care to
turn the screws by equal increments. Do not lever the cover off with a screwdriver, or similar object, since this may
damage the flamepath on an explosionproof unit or the O-ring seal and seating face.
3.3.2 Terminal Compartment Documents
The OEM and user installation kits, wiring diagram, and test report are contained in the terminal compartment or with
the actuator. Do not place them in the terminal compartment when the electrical connections have been completed.
NOTE: This instruction does not apply to valve manufacturers or similar installers of the actuator onto a valve prior to
shipping to site. It is important that these items are available at the final destination site.
3.3.3 Sealing Cable/Conduit Entries
The sealing of cables and conduit entries should be done in accordance with National Standards or the Regulatory
Authorities that have certified the actuators. This is particularly true for units that are certified for use in hazardous areas
where the method of sealing must be to an approved standard and cable glands, reducers, plugs, and adapters must be
approved and separately certified. All conduit entries should be sealed against the climatic conditions prevailing on-site,
especially if temporary submersion is possible. All unused conduit entries should be sealed with threaded metal plugs.
Plastic plugs are installed by Limitorque for shipping only and must not be used as permanent seals.
3.3.4 Recommended Terminal Connections
Power Terminals
Ring tongue connectors used on the power terminals should comply with the dimensions shown in Figure 3.10. For
Additional information, consult terminal manufacturer.
Figure 3.11 details the allowable voltage and current parameters for the terminal block power terminals. Preload the M5
screws to 1.6-3.2 N m (1.2-2.33 ft-lb).
Control Terminals
Ring tongue connectors used on the control terminals should comply with the dimensions shown in Figure 3.12. For
additional information, consult terminal manufacturer. Preload the M3 screws to 0.33-0.66 N m (0.25-0.50 ft-lb).

3.3.7 Network Installations
The Limitorque MX offers a number of network options: DDC-Modbus, Foundation Fieldbus H1, Profibus DP_V1,
Profibus PA, and DeviceNet.
Ensure that the network cable type is Belden 3074F, Belden 3105, Belden 9841 or another cable that is within 5% of the
following specifications.
• Nominal impedance: 120 ohms @ 1 MHz
• Line to shield capacitance: 23.0 pF/ft (75.5 pF/m)
• Line to line capacitance: 12.8 pF/ft (42.0 pF/m)
25
Using other cables may result in decrease of internodal distance and/or an increase in communication error.
flowserve.com
Limitorque MX Electronic Actuator FCD LMENIM2306-05 – 10/13
Particular care should be taken when terminating twisted-pair shielded cables in a control network. Avoid nicks, cuts, or
abrasions in the insulation of data communication cables, since this may result in inadvertent ground connection. Also,
excess cable should be cut, not coiled or looped, to prevent noise induction into the network.
Limitorque strongly recommends remote communication wiring be routed separately from mains line power wiring.
Specifically, instrumentation wiring, including communication, analog and discrete signal wiring, should be routed
in conduit that is separated from power lines. If the recommendation is not followed, the intergrity of instrumentation signals may be comprimised. If the signal is comprimised, the MX will enter a“safe-state” whereby all motion is
prohibited until communication is sucessfully re-established.

Surge Protection
In terms of voltage, DATA is negative with respect to DATA*.
NOTE: Surge protection must be grounded to be effective.
NOTE: Ground each segment of the cabling at only one point to prevent ground loops, which can affect system
performance. Verify the actuator is properly grounded.
Limitorque defines an effective local earth ground as the M3 taps on the housing next to the terminal block. See figure
3.21.
NOTE: Safety ground may not be disturbed.
28
NOTE: Shielding is not sufficient to prevent induction of stray voltages onto signal leads from the power lines.
A network wiring diagram for a loop is shown in Figure 3.20.
Limitorque MX Electronic Actuator FCD LMENIM2306-05 – 10/13
After installation is complete and prior to operation, inspect the network cable and its connection to each field unit for
the following:
There should not be:
• Nicks in the insulation—this can cause a short to the grounded shield.
• Cut strands in a stranded conductor—this can cause a poor connection and eventually an open circuit.
• Cable armor shorted to the cable shield/drain wire—this may not be at ground potential and could be subject to
lightning surges.
• Shield/drain wire grounded at more than one end of each cable segment (the section between each adjacent actuator
on the loop). This will avoid ground loop problems.
• Ground/earth connection except at true ground potential and effective at all times.
3.3.8 Foundation Fieldbus Installation
Ensure that the Foundation Fieldbus cable type is Belden 3076F, or another cable that is within 5% of the following
specifications.
• Characteristic impedance: 100 ohms @ 31.25 kHz
• Resistance, each wire: 7.32 ohms/1000 ft
• Attenuation: 0.914 dB/1000 ft @ 39 kHz
• Capacitative Unbalance: 3.6 pF/ft
Using other cables may result in decrease of internodal distance and/or an increase in communication error.
Particular care should be taken when terminating twisted-pair shielded cables in a FF control network. Avoid nicks, cuts,
or abrasions in the insulation of data communication cables, since this may result in inadvertent ground connection.
Also, excess cable should be cut, not coiled or looped, to prevent noise induction into the network.
Cable Preparation
Prepare the network cable for connection to the MX actuator terminal block as follows in Figure 3.15 through 3.18.
Table 3.5 details connections for Foundation Fieldbus.
Table 3.5 – Foundation fieldbus connections
Terminal Block Number
FF Function

DATA (+)
The shield must be connected to ground or earth at only one place. The cable shield is generally grounded at the power
conditioner.
Reference the Fieldbus Foundation Application Guide 31.25 kbit/s Wiring and Installation guide for more information on
network wiring.
a CAUTION: Strip stranded conductors carefully; do not damage the strands. This will weaken the conductor.
Do not nick conductors when stripping away the insulation. Nicking stresses the conductor and can cause the
conductor to break. This type of damage may not be apparent and failure can occur later without warning.

3.3.9 Network Wiring – Profibus DP/PA Installation
Profibus DP is based on RS 485 communication. The standard EN 50170 specifies the cable for use with Profibus DP.
The following specifications need to be fulfilled by the Profibus cable:
Table 3.6 – Profibus cable specifications
Parameter
Type – Profibus DP
Impedance
135 to 165 ohm/3 to 20 MHz
Capacity
< 30 pF/m
Resistance
< 110 ohm/km
Wire gauge
> 0.64 mm
Conductor area
> 0.34 mm2
The Profibus DP cable is a shielded twisted pair cable.
In general, there are two different types of cables available. The most commonly used cable has solid wire for the
Profibus line. When there is a need for more flexiblity (bending) and higher environmental resistance, a cable with
stranded wire for the Profibus line and special jackets shall be used. Limitorque recommends the use of:
• Belden 3079A Specifications, 22 AWG, shielded, solid two conductor
Key Specifications
• Capacitance/ft = 8.5 pF
• Nominal Impedance (ohms) – 150.0
Network Wiring - Profibus PA
Please refer to IEC 61158 & ANSI/ISA S.50.02 Part 2-1992 for network wiring guidelines. Refer to Table 3.5 for
connections.
3.3.10 Network Wiring – DeviceNet
DeviceNet is a CAN-based protocol that uses five wires including a shield. Two of the conductors are used for 24 VDC
power and up to 8 amps (4 amps for NEC Class 2) may be passed along the hi-way from a suitable power source. Two
conductors are used for the CAN bus signals, CAN_H and CAN_L, which are usually smaller in diameter. Flowserve
recommends Belden 3082A cable for connecting to a DeviceNet network. The specifications for this cable are preferred.

3.5.4 Setting Position Limits
This section will advise how to configure end-of-travel limits.
The actuator’s position limits may be set by manual operation or electrical operation.
c WARNING: If the actuator will not move after setting the limits, the limits have been set incorrectly.
Set Close Position Limit (Handwheel Operation)
1. Enter the “SETUP” mode as detailed in Section 2.1.1, Entering the Setup Mode.
2. Enter “POSITION SETUP?” routine.
3. From the “SET CLOSE POSITION LIMIT?” display, select “YES.” “CLOSE VALVE OK?” will be displayed on the LCD.
4. Engage manual override as detailed in Section 3.6.1, Manual Operation.
5. Ensure that the valve is fully closed.
6. Move the valve in the open direction for one handwheel turn to allow for coasting of the motor.
7. When the valve is positioned correctly, select “YES” again. The LCD will display “SAVE CLOSE LIMIT OK?”
8. Select “YES.”
The close position limit is now calibrated. Check the position limit setting as follows:
34
1. Move the valve in the open direction. The close lamp should extinguish with approximately one turn of the
handwheel.
Limitorque MX Electronic Actuator FCD LMENIM2306-05 – 10/13
2. Move the valve back in the close direction and check that the close lamp illuminates just before the full close position is reached (approximately 1/2 to 1 turn).
3. Select “YES” at the “SET OPEN POSITION LIMIT?” prompt.
4. Set Position Precision? The MX permits position to be reported to the User in either default mode of XXX% OPEN,
or single precision mode of XXX.X% OPEN. This may be preferred in Modulating or other positioning applications
such as network move-to, analog fail move-to, communication loss move-to, or ESD move-to.
If the calibration requires adjustment:
1. Select “NO” at the “SET OPEN POSITION LIMIT?” prompt.
2. Repeat the “SET CLOSE POSITION LIMIT?” routine.
NOTE: The green LED is the default setting for indicating the (CLOSE) position.
Set Open Position Limit (Handwheel Operation)
1. From the “SET OPEN POSITION LIMIT?” display, select “YES.” “OPEN VALVE OK?” will be displayed on the LCD.
2. Engage manual override as detailed in Section 3.6.1, Manual Operation.
3. Ensure that the valve is fully open.
4. Move the valve in the close direction for one handwheel turn to allow for coasting of the motor.
5. When the valve is positioned correctly, select “YES” again. The LCD will display “SAVE OPEN LIMIT OK?”
6. Select “YES.”
The open position limit is now calibrated. Check the open position limit setting as follows:
1. Move the valve in the close direction. The open lamp should extinguish with approximately one turn of the
handwheel.
2. Move the valve back in the open direction and check that the open lamp illuminates just before the full close position is reached (approximately 1/2 to 1 turn).
3. Select “YES” at the “SET OPEN POSITION LIMIT?” prompt or “NO” to exit “POSITION SETUP?” dialog.
If the calibration requires adjustment:
1. Select “NO” at the “SELECT CLOSE POSITION LIMIT?” prompt.
2. Repeat the “SELECT OPEN POSITION LIMIT?” routine.
NOTE: The red LED is the default setting for indicating the (OPEN) position.
Set Close or Open Position Limit (Electrical Operation)
1. Enter the “SETUP” mode detailed in Section 2.1.1, Entering the Setup Mode.
2. Enter “POSITION SETUP?” routine.
3. During “CLOSE VALVE - OK?” or “OPEN VALVE - OK?,” move the red knob to “LOCAL” and use the “OPEN” and
“CLOSE” switch.
Unit will only operate locally and only in the push-to-run configuration (Inching mode). This does not exit the startup
routine—moving red selector knob back to “STOP” returns the user to the same message. This permits the valve to
be placed at its travel limits and avoids the necessity to use the handwheel. The unit will run while the black knob is
engaged with no stop limit when in this mode. Any previously set travel limits will be ignored.
35

1. Move the red knob to “LOCAL” and move the black knob in the intended direction. LCD display will read:
OR
CLOSE VALVE
RETURN TO STOP
OPEN VALVE
RETURN TO STOP
2. Once the “CLOSE” or “OPEN” valve position limit has been reached, return the red knob to “STOP” and complete
setting the “CLOSE” or “OPEN” position limit. See Figure 3.23.
NOTE: Once the travel limits have been set, the actuator may be operated electrically from the remote inputs. Local
maintained operation is also permitted. Check the operation of the actuator to ensure that the torque and limit settings
are satisfactory. Place the selector switch in “LOCAL” and rotate the “OPEN/CLOSE” switch to operate the actuator in the
“MOTOR” mode.
a CAUTION: On some valves, position limits could be set adjacent to each other, so be careful that the Close and
Open limits are set sufficiently apart to permit operation. If the limits are set adjacent to each other, an error
message will be displayed: “KEEP OPEN(CLOSE) LIMIT?”
NO FURTHER MOVEMENT IS PERMITTED UNTIL THE ERROR IS CORRECTED.
Should the User elect to proceed with the setting, an error will be displayed on the screen after re-booting
stating “IDENTICAL LIMITS”. THE ACTUATOR WILL NOT MOVE UNTIL THE ERROR IS CORRECTED.

3.6 Operating the MX Actuator
3.6.1 Manual Operation
Operate the actuator with the handwheel as follows:
1. Depress the declutch lever and, at the same time, slowly rotate the handwheel until the clutch is fully engaged.
2. Release the lever and it will return to its original position. The clutch will be retained in the handwheel mode by
spring-loaded latches.
Manual operation is now possible and the actuator can only be returned to motor operation by energizing the motor.
Energizing the motor will trip the spring-loaded latch and allow the clutch to disengage from the handwheel and
re-engage with the gear drive. To prevent unauthorized manual operation of the actuator, the declutch lever may be
padlocked in “MOTOR” mode. A 1/2 inch size padlock is recommended.
3.6.2 Electrical Operation
Before applying power to the actuator, check that the supply voltage details on the nameplate are correct for this
installation. An incorrect supply connected to the actuator terminals could cause fuses to blow or cause permanent
damage to the electrical components in the unit. Phase rotation need not be checked since all units are supplied with an
Autophase Correction feature. Apply power to the actuator but do not operate the actuator without first checking that it
has been set up and configured correctly for its intended application.
Figure 3.24 – Declutch lever shows direction of engagement (MX-05 shown)
3.6.3 Local Control
Once the position limits have been set (see Section 3.5.4, Setting Position Limits) and the default mode is the maintained mode, the actuator can be controlled locally from the control panel.
1. Place the red selector knob in the “LOCAL” position.
2. Select “OPEN” or “CLOSE” via the black control knob.
If maintained control has been selected, the actuator will continue to run when this control knob is released. The
actuator may be stopped at any time by placing the red selector knob in the “STOP” position, or the direction may be
reversed or stopped using the black control knob.
If non-maintained control mode (inching) has been selected, the actuator can be inched to any intermediate position by
holding the black control knob in the desired position, “OPEN” or “CLOSE,” for as long as necessary. The actuator will
stop when the knob is released.

Limitorque MX Electronic Actuator FCD LMENIM2306-05 – 10/13
3.6.4 Remote Control
Once the position limits have been set, and “REMOTE” mode is enabled:
1. Place the red selector knob in “REMOTE” to permit command control by a remote device. Local “OPEN/CLOSE”
mode will be prevented.
2. Rotating the red selector knob to the “STOP” position will automatically stop the actuator regardless of the remote
control signal unless ESD override has been selected. See Section 4.18, ESD (Emergency Shutdown) Overrides.
The red selector knob may be locked in or out of any of its three positions, “LOCAL/STOP/REMOTE,” using a padlock. A
1/4 inch padlock is recommended.
The LCD displays status and valve position. In normal operation mode, the top line displays “XXX % OPEN,” while the
bottom line displays “STATUS OK.” Refer to Section 4.13, Status and Alarm Contacts for a list of “ALARM” or “STATUS
MESSAGES.” Table 3.9 details the LED indicators’ default settings.

4.4 Valve Setup
Valve setup enables the actuator to be changed to suit the type of valve that it is mounted on.
4.4.1 Close Direction
Default = CW to Close
The majority of valves require clockwise (CW) rotation of the actuator drive sleeve when viewed from above the actuator.
1. Engage manual override and check whether the valve closes with CW or CCW rotation of the handwheel.
2. Select “NO” until the required direction is displayed, then “YES.”
NOTE: If in doubt as to valve seating, consult the valve manufacturer.
NOTE: For torque seated valves, ensure that the “POSITION” limit is not set at “TORQUE” seat. It is recommended that
the “POSITION” limit be set approximately one handwheel turn (360˚) in the opposite direction from the “TORQUE”
seat.
4.4.2 Close Seating
Default = Position Seating
1. Configure the actuator to close on “TORQUE” limit for seating valve types such as wedge gate and globe.
2. Select “POSITION” limit for valve types such as ball, butterfly, plug, sluice gate, parallel slide, knife gate, and
through conduit.
3. Select “NO” until the required seating is displayed.
4. Select “YES.”
4.4.3 Open Seating
Default = Position Seating
The majority of valves, regardless of their construction, seat on position limit in the open direction. Some valves are
“back-seating” and require torque limit in the open direction.
1. Select “NO” until the required seating is displayed.
2. Select “YES” to return to the “VALVE SETUP?” display.

Limitorque MX Electronic Actuator FCD LMENIM2306-05 – 10/13
4.5 Torque Switch Timer
Torque switch timer permits a user to select a time for the torque switch to time out once the actuator determines that it
has reached its torque seat. The torque switch timer can be adjusted from one (1) second to a maximum of fifteen (15)
seconds. The default is five (5) seconds.
NOTE: It should be noted that the purpose of this feature is to ensure that the torque sensing has shut off the motor
after a brief period of time. It is an additional safety feature to prevent the actuator from reaching a stall torque.
If operating in torque seating for either open or close torque seating, a backup timer can be used to halt the actuator to
protect the valve in case the actuator does not torque out after it has passed the expected limit.
1. From “VALVE SETUP?” select “NO” to enter “CHANGE TORQUE TIMER” routine. This option will only appear if
either the open or close valve setting is set to torque seating.
2. Select “YES” to change setting. If “NO” is selected, the “POSITION SETUP?” routine will be entered.
4.5.1 Status
Default = ON
1. Select “NO” to change torque timer status to “OFF”. If “OFF” is selected you will not advance to timer selection for
that direction.
4.5.2 Torque Timer
The timer value is how long in seconds that the unit will run once it has passed the expected position limit.
Default = 5 seconds
1. Select “NO” to increase the timer value. The timer is configurable from 1-15 seconds. The counter will wrap around
to 1 second when you attempt to increase after 15 seconds.
NOTE: If the unit is only setup for open torque seating, then only the open torque timer will be available to change. This
is the same with close torque seating and the close torque timer. If both open and close torque seating are selected then
you will be prompted to change close torque timer first, followed by open torque timer.

black control knob in the “OPEN” position until the valve has reached the desired position. Move the red control
knob to “STOP.”
3. Inspect for correct operation. If the position limits are set adjacent to each other then an error message will be
displayed: “KEEP OPEN (CLOSE) LIMIT?” The position calibration is now complete. The actuator will function as
ordered. Inspect for correct operation by running actuator electrically.
NOTE: For torque seated valves, ensure that the Position limit is not set at torque seat. It is recommended that the
Position limit be set approximately one handwheel turn (360˚) in the opposite direction from the torque seat.
a CAUTION: On some valves, position limits could be set adjacent to each other, so be careful that the Close and
Open limits are set sufficiently apart to permit operation. If the limits are set adjacent of each other, an error
message will be displayed: “KEEP OPEN(CLOSE) LIMIT?”
NO FURTHER MOVEMENT IS PERMITTED UNTIL THE ERROR IS CORRECTED.
Should the User elect to proceed with the setting, an error will be displayed on the screen after re-booting
stating “IDENTICAL LIMITS”. THE ACTUATOR WILL NOT MOVE UNTIL THE ERROR IS CORRECTED.
4.7.2 Set Position Limits for Manual Operation
1. Set close position. At “SET CLOSE POSITION LIMIT?” answer “YES.” At “CLOSE VALVE-OK?” depress declutch
lever and slowly rotate handwheel until clutch is fully engaged. Release declutch lever; the clutch will stay in handwheel mode. If the valve is fully closed, move the handwheel one turn in the open direction to allow for coasting of
the motor. When valve is in the desired location, select “YES.” At “SAVE CLOSE LIMIT-OK?” select “YES” to set the
close position or “NO” to adjust the setting.
2. Set open position. At “SET OPEN POSITION LIMIT?” select “YES” to get “OPEN VALVE-OK?.” Engage the clutch
(see step 1). Valve should be fully opened. Move the handwheel one turn toward the closed position to allow for
coasting of the motor. When valve is in the desired location, select “YES” again to set the open position or “NO” to
adjust the setting.
3. Checking the settings. Turn the handwheel and verify that the open and close LED’s function correctly (see Checking
the Settings). If adjustments are necessary, select “NO” to return to “CHANGE POSITION SETUP?” and repeat from
step 1.

4.19.2 Status
Default Setting is: OFF
Select “NO” to choose whether the inhibit is “ON” or “OFF.”
4.19.3 Custom Input Mode #1 – Momentary ESD/PSESD (Optional)
Custom software is available for the MX that permits the User to establish certain performance characteristics for partial
stroke (PS) testing and momentary contact closure ESD.
Note: These three inputs are normally configurable. However, when this custom mode is enabled, they are set to the
predefined configuration and cannot be changed by the customer.
Input 0 (normal default – ESD) terminal 30:
• Set as disabled, user input function, signal present
Input 1 (normal default – Open Inhibit) terminal 34:
• Set as enabled, partial stroke enable function, signal present = active
Input 2 (normal default – Close Inhibit) terminal 35:
• Set as enabled, partial stroke enable function, signal absent = active
The partial stroke enable signals are setup as redundant signals for safety. There are two signal inputs, and BOTH must
be in the active state. If the partial stroke enable inputs are in the active state, and an input is detected (>800 ms) on the
momentary ESD/PSESD input, then a partial stroke ESD test will be run. If the partial stroke enable inputs are not active
or in a fault state, and an input is detected on the momentary ESD/PSESD input, then the ESD will be latched in and the
actuator will perform ESD until the ESD Release is given.
NOTE: These three inputs are the normal open-close-stop inputs. When this custom mode is enabled, they are set to
the predefined configuration and cannot be changed by the customer. The only change the customer can make is to set
the momentary ESD action (if action is position – then also the target value for the ESD) and the partial stroke
target value.
Input 3 (normal default – stop) terminal 26:
• Set as enabled, ESD release function, signal absent = active
Input 4 (normal default – open) terminal 25:
• Set as enabled, ESD Release function, signal present = active
Input 5 (normal default – close) terminal 27:
• Set as enabled, momentary ESD/PSESD function, signal present > 800 ms = active, ESD action = Close, partial stroke
target position = 0% open
The ESD release signals are setup as redundant signals for safety. There are two signal inputs, and BOTH must be in
the active state. If there is an active ESD and both ESD release inputs are in the active state, the ESD will be unlatched
and the unit will return to normal operation. If the ESD release inputs are in a fault state, an active ESD will NOT be
released. The ESD release inputs will have no effect on a partial stroke ESD test. The momentary ESD/PSESD input will
be ignored if there is a signal present for less than 100 ms, and is guaranteed to latch in the ESD/PSESD if the signal is
present for greater than 800 ms. Once the ESD is latched in, the unit will perform the ESD action. In this case the ESD
will move the unit to the close limit and remain in ESD mode until the ESD release indication is given using the ESD
release inputs.

4.19.4 Custom Input Mode #2 – Momentary ESD/CSE (Optional)
Custom software is available for the MX that permits the user to establish certain performance characteristics momentary contact closure ESD and 4-wire remote control.
NOTE: These three inputs are normally configurable, however, when this custom mode is enabled, they are set to the
predefined configuration and cannot be changed by the customer.
Input 0 (normal default – ESD) terminal 30:
Set as remote stop
Input 1 (normal default – Open Inhibit) terminal 34:
Set as remote close
Input 2 (normal default – Close Inhibit) terminal 35:
Set as remote open
NOTE: These three inputs are the normal open-close-stop inputs. When this custom mode is enabled, they are set to
the predefined configuration and cannot be changed by the customer. The only change the customer can make is to set
the momentary ESD action (if action is position – then also the target value for the ESD).
Input 3 (normal default – Stop) terminal 26:
Set as enabled, ESD release function, signal absent = active
Input 4 (normal default – Open) terminal 25:
Set as enabled, ESD Release function, signal present = active
Input 5 (normal default – Close) terminal 27:
Set as enabled, momentary ESD function, signal present > 800 ms = active, ESD action = Close.
The ESD release signals are setup as redundant signals for safety. There are two signal inputs, and BOTH must be in the
active state. If there is an active ESD and both ESD release inputs are in the active state, the ESD will be unlatched and
the unit will return to normal operation. If the ESD release inputs are in a fault state, an active ESD will NOT be released.
The ESD release inputs will have no effect on a partial stroke ESD test. The momentary ESD input will be ignored if
there is a present for less than 100 ms, and is guaranteed to latch in the ESD if the signal is present for greater than 800
ms. Once the ESD is latched in, the unit will perform the ESD action. In this case the ESD will move the unit to the close
limit and remain in ESD mode until the ESD release indication is given using the ESD release inputs.
4.19.5 Custom Input Mode #3 – ESD Time Delay Relay
Custom software is available for the MX that permits the User to establish certain performance characteristics for ESD.
NOTE: These three inputs are normally all configurable. However, when this custom mode is enabled, the customer still
retains the ability to change inputs 1 and 2 to their choosing, but Input 0 will always remain ESD. The timer is default
0-30 min (30 sec increment with default 0 sec).
Input 0 (normal default – ESD) terminal 30:
Set as enabled, ESD, 0 sec Delay(default), Signal present = active, ESD action Close
Input 1 (normal default – Open Inhibit) terminal 34:
Set as enabled, User Input, Signal present = active
Input 2 (normal default – Close Inhibit) terminal 35:
Set as enabled, User Input, Signal present = active

The ESD Time Delay Relay input (input 0) functions like any normal ESD input signal. Only if a time has been entered
into the Delay Timer value then the unit will not act on that ESD for that delayed amount of time. If the ESD signal is
removed, then the timer is canceled and will start fresh with the next assertion. You cannot change that Input 0 is ESD,
but it can be enabled/disabled, set to signal present/absent, or you can change the ESD action. NOTE: These three inputs are kept as open-stop-close inputs. When the custom mode is enabled, the wire mode is
preset to 4-wire control and cannot be altered.
Input 3 (normal default – Stop) terminal 26
Input 4 (normal default – Open) terminal 25
Input 5 (normal default – Close) terminal 27
4.19.6 Custom Input Mode #4 - Multi-position Mode (Optional)
Custom software is available for the MX that permits the User to establish certain performance characteristics for Multi
Position controls for remote and local operations.
Input 0 (normal default - ESD) terminal 30:
• Set as enabled Ml Move To, signal present = active
Input 1 (normal default - Open Inhibit) terminal 34:
• Set as disabled, User Input, signal present = active
Input 2 (normal default - Close inhibit) terminal 35:
• Set as disabled, User Input, signal present = active
The custom input Multi Position Mode allows the user to configure up to 2 mid travel stop positions. The user will be
able to send the actuator to either of these positions in either remote or local controls. In order to use local controls in
multi-mode, that option will need to be selected in the CHANGE LOCAL Control menu. The user can select any of the
standard wire controls for inputs 3, 4, and 5 (4-wire, 3- wire Maintain, or 3-wire Inching).

4.19.8 SIL Mode – Standard SIL (Optional)
Custom software is available for the MX that permits the User to establish certain performance characteristics for
partial stroke (PS) testing and ESD.
NOTE: These three inputs are normally configurable. When this SIL mode is enabled, input 0 is preconfigured to
ESD, input 1 is pre-configured to partial stroke, and both inputs cannot be changed by the customer. Input 2 can be
configured to user input, inhibit, ESD or CSE.
Input 0 (normal default - ESD) terminal 30:
• Set as enabled, ESD, signal present
Input 1 (normal default - Open Inhibit) terminal 34:
• Set as enabled, partial stroke function, signal present = active
Input 2 (normal default - Close Inhibit) terminal 35:
• Set as disabled, user input, signal absent = active
When this mode is selected, the ESD overrides are set so that ESD had priority over stop, local, and network ESD. You
cannot change that Input 0 is ESD, but it can be enabled/disabled, set to signal present/absent, or you can change the
ESD action.
NOTE: These three inputs are kept as open-stop-close inputs. When the custom mode is enabled, the wire mode is

4.19.9 SIL Mode – Enhanced SIL (Optional)
Custom software is available for the MX that permits the User to establish certain performance characteristics for partial
stroke (PS) testing and momentary contact closure ESD.
NOTE: These three inputs are normally configurable. When this SIL mode is enabled, input 0 is configurable to 2 wire
control, user defined or inhibit. Inputs 1 and 2 are pre-configured for partial stroke enable and cannot be changed by
the customer.
Input 0 (normal default - ESD) terminal 30:
• Set as disabled, user input function, signal present
Input 1 (normal default - Open Inhibit) terminal 34:
• Set as enabled, partial stroke enable function, signal present = active
Input 2 (normal default - Close Inhibit) terminal 35:
• Set as enabled, partial stroke enable function, signal absent = active
The partial stroke enable signals are setup as redundant signals for safety. There are two signal inputs, and BOTH must
be in the active state. If the partial stroke enable inputs are in the active state, and an input is detected (>800 ms) on the
momentary ESD/PSESD input, then a partial stroke ESD test will be run. If the partial stroke enable inputs are not active
or in a fault state, and an input is detected on the momentary ESD/PSESD input, then the ESD will be latched in and the
actuator will perform ESD until the ESD Release is given.
78
NOTE: These three inputs are the normal open-close-stop inputs. When this custom mode is enabled, they are set to
the predefined configuration and cannot be changed by the customer. The only change the customer can make is to
set the momentary ESD action (if action is position - then also the target value for the ESD) and the partial stroke target
value.

Input 5 (normal default - close) terminal 27:
• Set as enabled, momentary ESD/PSESD function, signal present> 800 ms = active, ESD action =
Close, partial stroke target position = 0% open The ESD release signals are setup as redundant signals for safety. There
are two signal inputs, and BOTH must be in the active state. If there is an active ESD and both ESD release inputs are in
the active state, the ESD will be unlatched and the unit will return to normal operation. If the ESD release inputs are in
a fault state, an active ESD will NOT be released. The ESD release inputs will have no effect on a partial stroke ESD test.
The momentary ESD/PSESD input will be ignored if there is a signal present for less than 100 ms, and is guaranteed to
latch in the ESD/PSESD if the signal is present for greater than 800 ms. Once the ESD is latched in, the unit will perform
the ESD action. In this case the ESD will move the unit to the close limit and remain in ESD mode until the ESD release

4.21 Diagnostic Reset
For diagnostic purposes the following parameters are recorded at certain points in the valve travel on every opening
and closing stroke:
• Proportional measurements of torque
• Drive sleeve turns
• Contactor operations
• Maximum and minimum voltage
• Motor run time
• Stroke time
To enable the new values to be compared with previous measurements, it is essential to record reference values.
Limitorque recommends this be done after the valve has been installed, commissioned, and is operating under normal
process conditions, and after a plant shutdown or actuator/valve overhaul. The user may select to reset the torque
profile at any time.
1. Select “RESET TORQUE PROFILE?” from the “RESET DIAGNOSTICS” routine.
2. Select “YES” to enter the “SAVE NEXT CYCLE?” display.
3. Select “NO” to switch the reset ON or OFF.
After the next complete cycling of the valve, in both the open and close directions, this reset will automatically be
switched OFF.
4. Select “RESET COUNTERS” to reset all the listed parameters to “0.”

Troubleshooting
cc WARNING: This actuator is non-intrusive. Do not open the control compartment on the actuator unless absolutely
necessary. It was sealed in dry, clean conditions in the factory and entry to this compartment should not be necessary. Unauthorized entry could void the warranty.
If the actuator will not operate, before attempting to troubleshoot, verify the following:
• LCD display reads “XX% OPEN,” “STATUS OK.”
• Red selector switch is not in the STOP position.
• All three phases of the main power supply are present at the actuator terminals.
• The supply voltage is the same as that stated on the actuator nameplate.
• Optional 110 VAC is measured at terminals 23 and 24.
• 24 VDC is measured at terminals 22 (+Ve) and 21.
• If 24 VDC power supply is ON, check that the loading does not exceed 5 W across terminals 21 and 22 (remove wires
from 21, 22, 23, and 24).
• LCD and LED display on the control panel are illuminated.
If these checks are satisfactory, then attempt to locate the fault using the “VIEW DIAGNOSTICS” routine. It is also
recommended that the actuator settings be verified using “VIEW SETTINGS.”
5.1 View Diagnostics Routine
1. Enter “VIEW DIAGNOSTICS” as detailed in Section 5.3, View Diagnostics.
2. Review the various displays to try to find the reason the actuator will not operate. The displays that may help to
isolate the fault are as follows:
• View Hardware Status
• View Motor Status
• View Power Supply
5.2 T roubleshooting Problems/Corrective Action
(Refer to LMENIM2314, MX Maintenance and Spare Parts and the standard wiring diagram in the Section 3.3, Electrical
Connections). We recommend that only Limitorque service personnel perform this operation.
86
1. Switch off the main power supply and 24 VDC supply at terminals 6 and 7 (if used).
2. Remove control compartment cover (ACP) and protect against the ingress of moisture or dust.
3. Remove any wiring that has been connected to terminals 21, 22, 23 and 24.
Limitorque MX Electronic Actuator FCD LMENIM2306-05 – 10/13
4. Switch on main power supply.
5. Measure VAC at 23, 24 – should be 110 VAC if actuator is supplied with optional 110 VAC circuit. If no power, check
fuses FS1, FS2 (600 VAC, 1 A, fast acting, 10.3 x 38.1 mm tube) and FS3 (250 VAC, 0.1A, time delay, 5 x 20 mm
glass tube) and replace if necessary. If replacing fuses does not fix the problem, replace damaged board. Contact
Limitorque Service at (434) 528-4400.
6. Measure VDC at 21, 22 – should be 24 VDC, maximum power of 5W. If not, replace damaged board.
7. Replace the control compartment cover (ACP).
5.2.1 Actuator Fails to Operate
Actuator Fails to Operate from LOCAL Controls
1. Place the red selector knob in “LOCAL.”
2. If motor runs but actuator output does not turn, check that declutch lever has returned to motor operation position.
3. Check LCD display for following alarms:
• If motor runs but no actuator movement is detected, check if the display says “JAMMED VALVE” and free if
necessary.
• Inhibit signal may be present or absent at the terminals. Check for signal and adjust as necessary. “INHIBIT
ACTIVE” appears on display.
• Thermal overload of the motor may have been detected. Check motor for high temperature. Thermal overload is
self-resetting when motor cools. “MOTOR OVERTEMP” appears on the display.
4. Check to see if the position limits are set incorrectly on top of one another. See Section 3.5.4, Setting Position
Limits.
Actuator Fails to Operate from REMOTE Controls
1. Check that the actuator will operate from “LOCAL.” If not, then carry out the checks described below.
2. Check that the red knob is in “REMOTE.”
3. ESD signal may be present or absent at the terminals. Check for signal and adjust as necessary. (“ESD ACTIVE”
at display.) If actuator was previously operated in “LOCAL,” then the fault is probably in the remote control circuit.
Check the integrity of the cabling and that the connections to the terminals are in accordance with the wiring
diagram. If motor runs in “LOCAL,” but not “REMOTE,” adjust ESD to be greater than local (“ESD>LOCAL”).
4. Confirm correct monitor relay operation. See Table 3.5.
5.2.2 Jammed Valve Detected
1. Check that position limits have been set correctly. If valve is position-seated, the limits should stop the motor just
before the end-of-travel. Recalibrate the position limits if necessary. See Section 3.5.4, Setting Position Limits.
2. Check that torque settings are correct for the valve. Recalibrate if necessary. See Section 4.6, Torque Setup.
3. Check the condition of the valve and lubrication of the valve stem and thrust bearings. The valve may have
remained in the same position for a long time and become corroded internally or externally. Engage manual override and employ the handwheel drive to unseat the valve.
4. Verify that the actuator will now operate the valve. Open and close the valve a few times to check for correct operation throughout the travel.
NOTE: To free a jammed valve from the “CLOSE” or “OPEN” position, engage manual override and attempt to unseat it
using the handwheel drive. If a rising stem valve is jammed in the close position, loosen the fixing bolts that attach the
thrust base to the valve. This will release the compression in the drive components and reduce the effort to unjam the
valve. Partly open the valve, then retighten the bolts.
87

Limitorque MX Electronic Actuator FCD LMENIM2306-05 – 10/13
5.2.3 Actuator Operates but Does Not Drive Valve
1. Verify that the declutch lever has returned to motor-operated position.
2. Verify that the stem nut is fitted correctly in the actuator base.
3. Verify that the stem nut has sufficient engagement with the valve stem.
4. Verify that the key is fitted in bore/keyway applications.
5.2.4 Valve Does Not Seat Correctly
1. Verify that position limits are calibrated correctly for the valve travel.
2. Verify that the torque-seating valves have been configured to close on torque, not position.
3. Verify that closing torque value has been set high enough to suit the process conditions.
4. Verify that the valve is not obstructed.
5.2.5 Status Messages

Maintenance
Under normal operating conditions, the MX is a maintenance-free actuator. For ordinary applications, the actuator will
require no formal maintenance program. However, if the actuator is used under severe service conditions or operated in
a Hazardous Location, the following maintenance procedures are required:
1. Check the oil level every 50 hours of operation at a minimum. Where conditions are severe due to frequent operation or high ambient temperatures, a more regular inspection interval should be maintained.
2. Change the gear oil every 100 hours of operation. See Section 6.1: Lubrication.
3. All ball bearings, oil seals, O-rings and quad-rings are to be replaced after 450 hours of operation. See Bulletin
LMENIM2314, MX Maintenance and Spare Parts for disassembly procedures.
Clean and lubricate the valve stem regularly to avoid torque build-up and wear due to silting and corrosion. Infrequent
operation can lead to corrosion and contamination of the valve stem thread lubricant. Check any thrust bearings that
are fitted to the actuator for proper lubrication at regular intervals. For additional details refer to LMENIM2314, MX
Maintenance and Spare Parts.
6.1 Lubrication
MX actuators are oil-filled, as standard, using Mobil SHC 632. Exxon Teresstic SHP 320 may be used as a direct
substitute. These products are synthetic machine oils suitable for ambient temperatures of -20°F to 250°F (-30°C to
120°C). For extreme low temperature conditions (< -30°C to 60°C), an alternative lubricant is available—Petro Canada
TRAXON Synthetic 75W-90 with TOS. Consult factory for arctic temperature applications.
6.1.1 Oil Capacities
To avoid pressurization of the gearcase, the following recommended oil capacities should not be exceeded:
• MX-05 – 10 oz. (256 ml)
MX-85 – 192 oz. (5.7 liters)
• MX-10 – 21 oz. (.6 liters)
MX-140 – 192 oz. (5.7 liters)
• MX-20 – 48 oz. (1.4 liters)
MX-150 – 192 oz. (5.7 liters)
• MX-40 – 65 oz. (1.9 liters))
6.1.2 Checking Oil Level
To check the level:
1. Remove the uppermost filler plug on the gearcase.
97
2. Check that the level of oil is within 1 inch (25 mm) of the hole (when actuator is mounted with base horizontal).
