APEX 5000 Pneumatic Positioner

The Apex 5000 Pneumatic Positioner provides accurate valve positioning with advanced features. It may be used with 3-15 psi pneumatic control signals, or fitted with a current-to-pressure tranducers for 4-20 mA signal input (See Apex Electro-Pneumatic Positioner). The Apex is available with many options including: limit switches, position feedback transmitter, speed controls, NAMUR shaft, and our Pharos visual position indicator.

Three spool valve options plus a patented adjustable gain system (U.S. Patent # 5,345,856) make the Apex well suited for use with all pneumatic rotary actuator types including: Rack-and-Pinion, Heavy Duty, Vane, and others. The Apex is equally well-suited for use with pneumatic linear actuators and cylinders. The Apex may be installed on any actuator conforming to the NAMUR standard. Automax also offers a full line of mounting hardware for non-NAMUR actuators.

The Apex housing is constructed from durable die-cast aluminum and treated with a dichromate undercoat and polyester powder top coat for protection against the toughest applications in all process industries.
