Emerson has enhanced the software for its Fisher™ FIELDVUE DVC6200 series digital valve controllers, which are now available for use by process industries with PLCs and PROFIBUS communications as the dominant protocol. The FIELDVUE DVC6200p digital valve controller with Device Type Manager (DTM) software supports control valve start-up, commissioning, and diagnostic activities. It has also been tested and integrated for use with multiple Field Device Tool (FDT) host systems.
Available in a variety of materials including stainless steel, the device comes with mounting kits to accommodate different actuators. Mounting kits can be re-used in upgrades to existing FIELDVUE instruments. For control valves located in critical or hazardous areas, the FIELDVUE DVC6200p may be remotely mounted to enhance its performance in harsh process conditions such as high-heat or vibration.
The FIELDVUE DVC6200p DTM has several features that simplify control valve set-up and monitoring. Its intuitive set-up, auto-calibration, and simple tuning features save time during commissioning. With the failsafe option, users can set the instrument to hold its last value or position to actuator fail, based on control valve process needs.
