Valve: 5" 3W Flanged, 240 CV, Floating, Failsafe
The KMC VEB-56 series ball control valves are three-way, mixing or diverting, flanged valves, designed for control of hot water or chilled water. These valves range in size from 4 to 6 inches with equal-percentage flow characteristics. Leak-proof, blow-out-proof stems, and stainless steel ball and stem make these valves ideal for many applications.
These valves use KMC MEP-7500 series ControlSet actuators with proportional or tri-state inputs. Proportional models accept a 0–10 VDC, 2–10 VDC, or 4–20 mA control signal input from a thermostat, controller, or building automation system. A user-initiated, auto-mapping feature provides better equipment control by reassigning the input signal range over the desired reduced rotation range (from 45 to 95°). Plus, they feature a feedback voltage output that is proportional to the actuator position. Tri-state models are designed for use with floating thermostats, controllers, or building automation systems. An optional, long-life, capacitor-driven “fail-safe” feature allows simple switch-selectable fail direction in either direction upon power loss. Optional auxiliary switches are available for remote position indication or controller and equipment interface. A gear disengagement button allows positioning of the valve stem/plug without energizing the actuator.
