Emerson has enhanced the software for its Fisher Fieldvue DVC6200 series digital valve controllers, which are now available for use in applications that employ PLCs and Profibus communications as the dominant protocol. It has also been tested and integrated for use with multiple Field Device Tool (FDT) host systems. The Fieldvue DVC6200p digital valve controller with Device Type Manager (DTM) software supports control valve startup, commissioning and diagnostic activities.
Available in a variety of materials including stainless steel, the device comes with mounting kits to accommodate different actuators. Mounting kits can be reused in upgrades to existing Fieldvue instruments. For control valves located in critical or hazardous areas, the Fieldvue DVC6200p may be remotely mounted. With the device’s failsafe option, users can set the instrument to hold its last value or position to actuator fail, based on control valve process needs.
