MARSHALLTOWN, IOWA (October 7, 2004) -- Emerson Process Management announces the FisherR FIELDVUER DVC2000 Series digital valve controller that brings the advantages of new technologies to global users.

The DVC2000 series of instruments was developed following consultation with customers so that their specific needs were met. Designed in accordance with NAMUR standards IEC60534-6-1 and IEC60534-6-2, The DVC2000 can be mounted on Fisher and other brand actuators, enabling the industry-leading FIELDVUE performance to be applied to a wide range of applications across all industries. The superior performance is made possible by a two-stage,
pre-amplifier design that multiplies small changes in the pneumatic signal, and by the digital tuning algorithm used to configure the instrument to suit the actuator.

Magnetic technology in the position feedback system improves DVC2000 reliability on linear and rotary valves. Simplified instrument mounting is also a feature of the linkage-less design, as is removal of the instrument from the valve, should doing so be required for maintenance. The low power liquid crystal display, along with pushbuttons, provides a local user configuration interface that supports English, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Chinese and Japanese languages.

The multi-language local interface is used to initiate a quick setup routine that calibrates and tunes the instrument specifically to the actuator on which it has been installed. This helps ensure accurate and consistent performance.

The DVC2000 offers an option for an integrated position transmitter and limit switches - versus requiring these to be obtained and installed separately - helping to simplify valve controller selection by reducing the need for additional engineering and specification.

Truly capitalizing on the power of digital technology, the DVC2000 also supports the FIELDVUE instrument's unique Performance Diagnostics capability. The predictive intelligence from the valve controller powers Emerson's PlantWebR digital plant architecture. While the control valve is operating, critical valve performance information is available to evaluate and make decisions regarding the health of the entire control valve assembly. Information is communicated via AMS ValveLinkR software or directly to the process automation system. The appropriate personnel view a red-yellow-green snapshot and recommendations on how to correct any problems identified, avoiding unplanned shutdowns.
