A high degree of precision, repeatability, and commissioning flexibility for industrial flow control is found in the MAXON SMARTLINK® intelligent valve actuator assembly. The compact design of this unit is ruggedly built with FM, CE, and CSA approvals for outdoor, weatherproof installations. The SMARTLINKTM actuator is also FM approved for hazardous area applications in mills, refineries and other plants.

SMARTLINK® provide easy, on-site customization of the valve flow characteristic. Allowing users to "shape" valve response to their needs, this feature makes this an ideal solution for parallel valve positioning systems in combustion control applications.

The SMARTLINK® assembly includes both a Valve Actuator direct-coupled to a valve and a Control Interface unit between the Valve Actuator and the user’s process controller, PLC, or DCS. Each valve is continuous duty and fully adjustable to 0.1 degree accuracy to provide dynamic control of burner ratios for optimal performance.
