Foundation® Fieldbus positioner/controller

Masoneilan, part of Dresser Flow Control, has introduced the Fieldbus Valve Positioner (FVPTM). FVP is an intelligent digital valve positioner and PID process controller that communicates using the Foundation Fieldbus protocol. FVP offers advanced control technology for pneumatically actuated valves, providing higher precision, greater flexibility and ease of use previously unattainable in the market place. Position and pressure sensors provide exceptional capabilities with many functions that are really benefits for the end user:
• Easy ant quick setup
– Plug & Play installation
– Automated startup through “Setup Wizard” function
– Automated valve calibration : Auto Stop Limits and PID autotune
– Quick and easy mounting.
• Operating savings and low life cycle costs
– Non-contact inductive position sensor, eliminates wear
– Low power consumption (16 mA)
– Low air consumption
– Process trend visualization through our ValVue FF software
• Reduced maintenance costs
– Remote communication through multiple hosts systems or ValVue FF
– Basic and Advanced diagnostics : time valve open, time valve closed, time
valve nearly closed, device self diagnostics, alarms, various signatures, total
travel count.
– Full report with all FVP data (configuration, calibration,…) through ValVue FF
– External manual by-pass.
Other smart functions of course are available : continuous data record, position
Alarms. FVP also complies with ATEX Directive and hazardous areas certifications.
