    Valve actuators

    Soooo, I have 5 valve actuators, all the compool 180 deg models.

    Turns out I need 90 deg models (yay!)

    I am wondering do I need to return/ swap them out or can the be adjusted to 90 deg? Very little documentation in the box.

    Thanks!

    In the event I need to get the 90 deg models, anyone have any experience with the intermatic actuators that are adjustable ( and half the price!)

    You should be able to move the stops so that the valve only goes where you want it to go.

    Thanks Jason, so limiting the range of movement by half of spec won't damage motor? Just want to make sure.

    Thanks so much for your input.

    It is fine being limited to 90 degrees. On the CVA24 the "stops" are two cams inside the actuator that are adjusted so that it stops where you want it to stop. You need to remove the handle, remove the cover of the actuator, loosen the lock nut (by hand), and adjust the cams so it stops where you want it to stop.

    ah, ok, I was just about to post that I was confused b/c you have to remove the handle which has the stops in it. But if adjusting inside the unit works as well GREAT. Coz I bought 5 of the wrong **** actuators.
