Innovative digital communication and diagnostic capabilities of Fisher® FIELDVUE™ instruments help operators improve plant performance

MARSHALLTOWN, IOWA (October 23, 2013) – The process industry’s use of Emerson Process Management’s Fisher FIELDVUE digital valve controller continues to grow as aggregate sales jumped to over 1.5-million shipped worldwide. 

Introduced in 1994, the FIELDVUE product line with its innovative digital communication and diagnostic capabilities has helped accelerate the process industry’s move to valve-related digital instrumentation. 

FIELDVUE digital valve controllers prove highly suited to a wide variety of industries and applications where they provide reliable, unmatched valve operation. FIELDVUE instruments provide consistent and predictable information on valve assembly performance and condition, helping operators improve plant performance.

“FIELDVUE instruments have become the industry standard and have made Emerson the market leader in the digital control of valve operation, diagnostics and predictive maintenance,” said Bruce Grumstrup, Emerson’s vice president for FIELDVUE and positioning instruments. "Today, the capabilities of the FIELDVUE family of instruments have become extremely diverse, including nuclear-certified, natural gas approved, remote mount, and safety-instrumented systems,” said Grumstrup. “The more we build into the instrument, the greater the application flexibility and customer interest we generate.”

Emerson was the first in the industry to introduce a loop-powered, digital valve controller with advanced control and diagnostic capabilities. Continued product development and increasing capabilities have contributed to increasingly widespread application.

The newest generation of the FIELDVUE instrument line, the DVC6200 Series digital valve controller, features linkage-less, non-contact feedback technology that greatly extends system operating life by withstanding high levels of vibration, corrosion, or material entrapment.

User benefits include the availability of equipment alerts that notify of pending issues, automated configuration, calibration and tuning, and access to advanced levels of valve assembly diagnostics. With the self-diagnostic capability of the FIELDVUE digital valve controller, questions about valve performance can be answered without pulling the valve from the line.

The DVC6200 series is offered with ATEX, CSA, IECEx, and FM hazardous area approvals as well as other certifications/approvals. It is also listed in the Lloyd’s Register for industrial, marine and offshore use.
