MARSHALLTOWN, IOWA (May 4, 2016) – 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 startup, commissioning, and diagnostic activities. It has also been tested and integrated for use with multiple Field Device Tool (FDT) host systems.

Industries including food and beverage, water and wastewater, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, and metals and mining will find value in the FIELDVUE DVC6200p DTM instrument’s intuitive interface. 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.

Utilizing Human-Centered Design concepts, the FIELDVUE DVC6200p DTM has several features that simplify control valve set-up and monitoring. Its intuitive setup, 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. By incorporating control logic, module assignment, and linkage-less, non-contact sensor technology, the FIELDVUE DVC6200p digital valve controllers and DTM are easy to install, provide “plug and play” capabilities, and perform reliably – even in harsh environments.
