Emerson Introduces the FIELDVUE(R) Remote Mounted DVC6005 (HART) Digital Valve Controller

New Remote Mounted Fisher(R) DVC6005 Instrument Targets High-Temperature, High-Vibration Applications

MARSHALLTOWN, IOWA (September 26, 2002) - Emerson Process Management has made it possible to remotely mount a FIELDVUE Digital Valve Controller and digitally monitor the performance of control valves in severe-service or tight-fit applications. Fisher's DVC6005 (HART) instrument is an extension of its DVC6000 Series of Digital Valve Controllers, which are direct-mounted to a control valve. With the DVC6005, however, the valve position feedback potentiometer is mounted on the control valve, but the remainder of the instrument's components are mounted on a pipe stand or wall - as far as 100 feet away from the valve.

The remote-mount option is ideal for applications in which high-temperatures (up to 250-degrees Fahrenheit), vibration, or limited space make traditional installation difficult or impractical. Manufacturers including those in the Pulp & Paper or Nuclear Power industries may prefer to isolate DVC components (such as the I/P, relay, and electronics) from harsh or hazardous areas.

Fisher has developed thousands of mounting kits to remotely apply the DVC6005 instrument to sliding, rotary, and quarter-turn actuators; the smaller-size Baumann valves; as well as many competitors' valves. Fisher maintains a library of the various mounting kits available and has created an internal web-site for its worldwide sales Representatives to aid them in kit selection.

In August, Emerson's Asia Pacific sales team submitted the first order for the Remote Mounted DVC6005 and has supplied 40 units to a nuclear power customer in Taiwan.
