Emerson unveils remote-mount digital valve controller
Dubai, July 22, 2014
Emerson Process Management has launched the Fisher FieldVue DVC6200p series of digital valve controllers.
The DVC6200p series is an ideal solution for applications in which accessibility, extreme temperatures, extreme vibration or confined space make integral mounting difficult or impractical, said a statement.
The industries such as pulp and paper, and metal and mining have typically preferred to isolate valve mounted instruments from harsh environments.
With the remote mount version of the controller, only the valve position feedback is mounted on the control valve, while the remainder of the digital valve controller can be mounted over 300 ft away in a less severe or more accessible environment.
The remote valve mounted feedback unit utilises the patented Fieldvue linkage-less, non-contact feedback technology in which physical contact has been eliminated between the valve stem and the instrument. With no linkage to wear, loosen, corrode or vibrate, the feedback unit can withstand a plant’s operating extremes.
With over one and half million units installed worldwide, Fieldvue digital valve controllers prove highly suited to difficult process environments where they provide unmatched valve operation.
Utilising the best of Profibus, the DVC6200p series provides a range of alerts, trends, and diagnostics to allow for visibility and control .
It supports enhanced device description (EDD) files that allow for quick and easy configuration. Quick setup and calibration, including performance tuning, can be performed locally in a matter of minutes.
The controller is offered with CSA, IECEx, ATEX and FM hazardous area approvals as well as other certifications/approvals. It is also listed in the Lloyd’s Register for industrial, marine and offshore use. - TradeArabia News Service
