FIELDVUE DVC6000 Series digital valve controllers are communicating, microprocessor-based current-to-pneumatic instruments.
HART EDD Only
DVC6000 Series digital valve controllers can be used on single- or double-acting actuators. The digital valve controller receives feedback of the valve travel position plus supply and actuator pneumatic pressure. This allows the instrument to diagnose not only itself, but also the valve and actuator to which it is mounted. This provides you with very cost effective maintenance information, so that required maintenance can be performed on the instrument and valve when there really is a need.
Wiring is economical because DVC6000 Series digital valve controllers use two-wire 4 to 20 mA loop power. This provides for low cost replacement of existing analog instrumentation. The DVC6000 Series digital valve controller’s two-wire design avoids the high cost of running separate power and signal wiring.
Improved Control—Two-way digital communications give you current valve conditions. You can rely on this real-time information to make sound process management decisions. By analyzing valve dynamics through AMS ValveLink software, you can identify control areas needing improvement and maintain a high level of system performance.
Enhanced Safety—You can check instrument and valve operation and keep the process running smoothly and safely from a remote location. Access is possible at a field junction box, marshalling panel, or within the safety of the control room using either a HART Communicator, a notebook PC, or a system workstation. Your exposure to hazardous environments is minimized and you can avoid having to access hard-to-reach valve locations.
