Colfax Enhances Smart Technology CM-1000 Series

Colfax Fluid Handling introduced an Active Valve Control option to its Smart Technology CM-1000 Series intelligent sea water cooling system controller. The CM-1000 Series with optional Active Valve Control may be applied to both new-build and retrofit operations. The CM-1000 Series is designed to enhance shipboard sea water cooling system pumping efficiency while lowering operating and maintenance costs and maximizing uptime for greener, sustainable operation. The CM-1000 Series with Active Valve Control offers potential energy savings of up to 85 percent, thus reducing a vessel’s carbon footprint. It also reduces maintenance by up to 50 percent and provides safer operation, return-on-investment and long term savings for total ownership. The CM-1000 Series with Active Valve Control utilizes sensors to monitor real-time operating conditions such as temperatures in the freshwater cooling loop, as well as the pumps’ suction and discharge pressure. The sensor signals enable the CM-1000 Series controller to regulate the flow of sea water to the coolers according to varying heat loads from the main engine and generators.

Emerson Introduces Digital Valve Controller with Stainless Steel Housing for Corrosive Environments

Emerson DVC6200 stainlesssteelEmerson’s Fisher FIELDVUE DVC6200 digital valve controller family gains added capability with its all stainless steel housing that withstands the corrosive atmospheres often experienced in chemical plants, pulp and paper mills, as well as near-shore and offshore oil and gas installations.

All DVC6200 series instruments utilize a patented linkage-less, non-contact feedback design to detect valve position. This valve positioning technology eliminates any travel feedback issues caused by corrosion, high cycle or high vibration applications.

In addition to external protection, corrosion resistance is found within the stainless steel housing with the digital controller’s fully encapsulated printed wiring boards. Internal component protection is further enhanced by a separate, weather-tight field wiring terminal box that isolates the field wiring connection from other areas of the instrument.

Emerson Integrates Valve Position Transmitter and HART 7 Communications Within its Digital Valve Controller

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.

Spirax Sarco SP500 Positioner with HART Communications

Spirax Sarco SP500 Positioner with HART CommunicationsSpirax 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.
