Emerson Integrates Valve Position Transmitter and HART 7 Communications Within its Digital Valve Controller
- Published on Tuesday, 21 May 2013 11:20
Emerson’s Fisher FIELDVUE DVC6200 digital valve controller series now incorporates a 4-20mA position transmitter that can also be configured as a discrete switch. Having the valve position transmitter function integrated within the valve controller means that the expense, bracketry, and maintenance requirements of an add-on, accessory transmitter are eliminated.

Emerson’s new FIELDVUE DVC6200 SIS digital valve controller responds to safety demands, and features partial stroke and position monitoring capabilities for the final control element in a safety instrumented system (SIS). Intelligent automatic partial stroke valve testing provides improved safety and reliability versus traditional pneumatic and jammer partial stroke methods.
Meeting plant safety and reliability targets is easier using the DVC6200 SIS, which combines the field-proven linkage-less, non-contact feedback design of the DVC6200 and DVC2000 platforms with the safety demand and automatic partial stroke testing capability of the DVC6000 SIS. The DVC6200 SIS has been evaluated to the latest version of IEC 61508 (2010) and is certified as a SIL 3 capable device for either 4 or 20mA and 0 or 24Vdc power settings.

ValvTechnologies, Inc. has added bidirectional flow capabilities to its existing V1 valve product line. This is the first backpressure-resistant, metal-seated ball valve on the market.
The new V1 valve line feature prevents the load spring from collapsing, providing tight shutoff or zero leakage in the preferred direction after a reverse flow condition. Most power plant ball valves are unidirectional which makes the valves vulnerable to failure when they are exposed to back pressure. The bidirectional flow capabilities protect against damage to the internal components and load spring when the valve is exposed to back pressure.

Spirax Sarco is helping instrumentation users reduce their energy consumption with their ultra-efficient SP500 positioner with HART communications. This positioner consumes approximately 1% of the air of a traditional electropneumatic positioner and has class-leading low impedance helping to save on controller power. The SP500 digital positioner supports HART communication protocol. This protocol comprises of a digital data transfer and communication over existing 4-20mA wiring, requiring no additional power supply or wiring to the positioner.
