Profibus PA Added to Digital Valve Controller Line
The Fisher Fieldvue digital valve controller family now includes the Fieldvue DVC6200p Profibus PA digital positioner. This controller from Emerson Process Management is built on Fisher’s linkage-less non-contact sensor technology.
For throttling control applications the Fieldvue DVC6200p (www.Fieldvue.com) offers an Analog Output function block, while a Digital Output function block is available for on/off applications. The DVC6200p provides a wealth of alerts, trends, and diagnostics to allow for process visibility and control not previously available in a Profibus PA digital valve controller. A quick setup and calibration, including performance tuning, can be performed locally in a matter of minutes. For more extensive parameterization, leading Profibus configuration tools such as Siemens PDM can be used. It supports enhanced device description (EDD) files.
The controller is certified to Profile 3.02 for Profibus PA devices by the Profibus Nutzerorganisation a.V (PNO).
