Numatics Inc. FF Valve Manifold



Registered Product Information

Manufacturer: Emerson Electric Co.
Product Name: Numatics Inc. FF Valve Manifold
Product Description: Valve Controller
Profile: FOUNDATION Field Device
More Information: Foundation Fieldbus H1 (FF H1)    Numatics has developed a new device with multi I/O capabilities in a single Fieldbus node. This device has two basic modes of operation.     The General Purpose I/O (GPIO) mode of this communication module can control up to 32 digital inputs and 16 digital outputs. Outputs can be any combination of the integrated manifold’s valve coils and discrete output modules. This mode is perfect for automating process valves over an FF network where enhanced diagnostics are not required.    The Valve Monitoring System (VMS) function of this mode emulates 8 separate FF enable valve position indicators. This function has the ability of automating 8 process valves over 1 FF node while retaining the complete diagnostic capability of 8 separate FF nodes. Enhanced diagnostic capability of this function allows automatic monitoring of Travel Times, Break Times, Lost Position, Cycle Counter and Auto Calibration.    GPIO and VMS functionally can coexist on the same manifold. The maximum digital I/O count is 32 Inputs and 16 Outputs. VMS functionality allocates 2 digital Inputs to every valve station so a maximum of 8 valves and 16 inputs are allowed with this function. The remainder can be allocated as GPIO.    The optional “Logic Transducer” mode allows user to write local logic to be executed independent of DCS.

Device Support File Usage

FieldComm Group (FCG) makes available to its members and to the public certain device driver (DD) files, in various forms, that have passed certain tests conducted by or through FCG. The DD files are, or are created from, submissions to FCG by FCG members and are provided by FCG AS IS. FCG disclaims all liability for the accuracy, suitability or use of the DD files. Each member creating DD files has its own policies regarding supporting use of those files, and may, for instance support use of DD object code files, but not DeviceInfo or other files. While FCG is under no obligation to provide support for use of any DD files, FCG welcomes all inquiries on the subject and will often be able to assist.
