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.
The discrete switch is a solid state circuit (1-amp maximum) that opens and closes based on a user configurable trip point. The trip point can be based on valve travel anywhere within the calibrated travel range or on a device alert.
The position transmitter is independent from the digital valve controller with the power coming from the control system analog input channel in the same manner as a standard 2-wire transmitter.

The number of valves and valve types that go into modern process plants today to precisely control operations is huge.
The nation’s nuclear energy industry has deep roots that have always been focused on reliability and safety.
Since valves are the number one source of leakage, those faced with reducing fugitive emissions need to look at the most challenging type: control valves.
