POSITIONERS

Beta Pneumatic & E/P positioner
Back

The Valtek Beta positioner is a single or double-acting, force-balanced instrument that provides fast, sensitive and accurate positioning of diaphragm or cylinder actuators. It is available with either a pneumatic module for air control signals or an electro-pneumatic (I/P) module for milliamp current control signals. Designed for high performance, this positioner is compact, field reversible and ruggedly built for reliability in severe industrial environments.

Because of its interchangeability with System 80 or XL pneumatic and electro-pneumatic positioners, the Beta positioner can be mounted on either Valtek linear or rotary actuators or other manufacturers' actuators.

The Beta positioner with NT 3000 I/P module is intrinsically safe for class I, division I, groups A, B, C and D; class II, groups E, F and G, when installed with the appropriate energy limiting safety barriers. It is also explosion proof in class I, division I, groups B, C and D; class II, groups E, F & G. These ratings are certified by Factory Mutual, and Canadian Standards Association. SAA and CENELEC (ATEX) certifications are also available for explosion-proof or intrinsically safe.

Features:

  • P/P or I/P Signal Convertible: Field conversion from one control signal to another is easily accomplished by replacing one module with the other.
  • For Single or Double-acting Actuators: Usable with either single or double-acting actuators (both linear and rotary) makes the modular Beta positioner versatile.
  • Easily Field Reversed
  • Easy Calibration Procedures
  • Shock and Vibration Resistant: up to 2 G's, and frequencies to 500 Hz.
  • Split-Range Service: 4 - 20 mA, 10 - 50 mA, 3 - 15 psi, or 6 - 30 psi options all can be calibrated for a 2 or 3-way split range.

PMV D3 Digital Positioner
Back

D3 is a digital positioner where high air delivery capacity is combined with low air consumption. It suits both linear and rotary actuators, single or double acting. Five keys and a large graphic display make D3 simple to configure and adjust. The pneumatic relay consists of piezo electric valves and is made of plastic to offer high corrosion resistance. An easily accessible built in replaceable filter is provided to offer durability together with a sealed of compartment for the terminals.

1200e Digital Positioner
Back

The Logix Series 1000 digital HART® positioner combines the latest technology with extensive experience in "smart" product development into a digital positioner which is unparalleled in its performance. This is accomplished through the use of a powerful 16-bit microprocessor and proprietary two-stage electronic relay (patent pending). An on-board Quick-Cal button allows the user to complete setup and calibration in less than 30 seconds. Local status LEDs provide valve status at a glance.

Features:

  • Quick Calibration: The Quick-Cal function provides the fastest, most convenient self-calibration available.
  • Two-stage Electronic Relay: The two-stage electronic relay (patent pending) facilitates quick, accurate response to both large and small changes.
  • HART Handheld Support: The Logix 12XX is supported by the HART Model 275/375 handheld communicator.
  • SoftTools Software: SoftTools PC-based software provides valve configuration, calibration, diagnostics and signatures.
  • Twenty-one point Custom Characterization: Twenty-one individual points can be programmed so the valve can be in virtually any position the operator desires for a given signal.
  • Local Status LEDs: Local status LEDs provide operators with a visual indicator of the positioner status.

1400 Digital Positioner
Back

The Logix 1400 Series digital Foundation™ Fieldbus positioner combines the latest technology with extensive experience in smart product development into a digital positioner unparalleled in its performance. This is accomplished through the use of a powerful 16-bit microprocessor and proprietary two-stage electronic relay (patent pending).

Local status LEDs provide operators with a window into the system, alerting personnel to potential problems. This results in improved plant safety and less down time. The green LED indicates that the positioner and all alerts are normal. Yellow indicates a user limit or alert has been reached. Red indicates that a positioner failure has occurred.

The Logix 1400 features the AO, PID, RB, and XD Foundation Fieldbus function blocks. A Re-Cal function provides the fastest, most convenient, self-calibration available, and includes Jog Calibration for manual adjustment of the valve position. Twenty-one individual points can be programmed so the valve can be in virtually any position the operator desires for a given signal.

Features:

  • Process Control Algorithms: Included onboard are Honeywell's Ideal and robust PID process control algorithms.
  • Link Active Scheduler (LAS): The Logix 1400 LAS capabilities make this device a must in redundant segments, taking control of the loop should the host go down for any reason.
  • Auto Tune: Provides easy gain adjustment to meet process control needs and compensate for various actuator sizes.
  • Improved Feedback Range: Simplifies retrofitting on non-Flowserve actuators.
  • Stroke Speed Limiter: Allows user to control the valve stroking speed.

008 'Smart' Positioner
Back

The 008 Electro – pneumatic positioner receives a 4-20mA signal to control the position of rotary or linear modulating control valves.
Microprocessor technology is used to both greatly facilitate commissioning and optimise performance. The 008 will self calibrate and select a control algorithm that best suits the characteristic of the valve actuator to which it is fitted. The 008 will then self monitor and where necessary adjust the control algorithm to best suit changing valve performance. A unique metal seated solenoid and high capacity spool valve ensure that the unit will perform well on both small and large actuators and that the unit is more tolerant to poor quality instrument air.

  • Very simple and intuitive to use
  • Self calibrates and continuously optimises performance
  • Performs well on small and large actuators
  • Tolerant to poor quality instrument air
  • Neat, compact design with highly accessible internals
  • Ingress protection to IP667 (7 joules impact)
  • Coated aluminium enclosure
  • All internals protected from site damage
  • Mechanical or proximity end of travel switches
  • Optional 4-20mA position retransmission
  • Suitable for rotary and linear actuators
  • CE Marked - EMC compliant
