The Quartz


  the quartz The Quartz is available in explosion proof (QX), nonincendive and
intrinsically safe (QN) and general purpose (QG) versions. The
robust epoxy coated anodized aluminum construction makes this
platform extremely durable and well suited for use in corrosive,
heavy wash down environments. A broad range of switching,
position transmitter and communication options may be selected to
accommodate most applications.

This versatile platform adapts to a wide variety of valve systems. Attach the Quartz to
quarter-turn actuators,manual operators, linear operators and positioners using readily
available stainless steel mounting systems.


1. Enclosures Optimized for Environment

QX: Explosion-proof, water tight
and corrosion-proof enclosure is
approved for use in div.1/zone 1
hazardous areas.

QN: Nonincendive is approved for
all div.2/zone 2 hazardous environ-
ments with proximity sensors using
a clear cover. Intrinsically safe Namur
sensors or passive switches are
available for div.1/zone 0 applications.

QG: General purpose features a clear
Lexan cover with mechanical switches.
All enclosures are rated NEMA 4, 4x,
and 6.

2, Rapid Enclosure Access
Screw-on cover allows quick enclosure access, saving you valuable maintenance and
set-up time. The cover provides a vapor tight seal and allows entry to internal
components in less than five seconds.

3, Faster Wiring
Pre-wired and labeled terminal strip enables quick, convenient attachment of field wires.

4, Wide Variety of Switching & Communication
Switching options include dual module sensors and communication, Maxx-Guard
proximity switches and mechanical switches. Continuous signal output is available
in a 4 to 20 mA position transmitter.

5, Quick Set Cams are Easy to Adjust
Touch and Tune switch settings allow you to make adjustments in seconds without
the use of tools.

6, Dual Shaft O-ring Seals Eliminate Corrosion
Top inner and bottom outer shaft o-rings seal the drive bushing from both external
corrosives and internal contaminants that enter the enclosure.

7, Special drive bushing assures long cycle life
The oil impregnated bronze bushing maintains smooth operation and eliminates the
potential for shaft seizure due to actuator shaft eccentricity.

8, Space Saving Visual Indication
Visual indicator offers excellent viewability without sacrificing accessibility or adding to
space requirements. Indicators are also available with continuous percentage or
three-way indication.

Eliminate Seal Fittings in Division 1 and 2 Areas
FMus ratings certify the Quartz QX series with proximity switches for use without seal
fittings in all hazardous areas. By passing special pressure piling tests, the all aluminum
enclosure was certified for this elite distinction. Now, a time-consuming procedure can be
safely eliminated in division 1 and division 2 areas.

Consolidate Your Components and Minimize CostsT
he Quartz design offers up to three conduit entries with extra wire terminations. By
terminating solenoid valves in the switch enclosure, significant savings are realized by
eliminating a junction box, wiring, conduit materials and labor.
