 ISA100  certifies Flowserve's PMV D3 Wireless enabled valve positioner

April 12, 2016 – The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute announced today that Flowserve has successfully achieved ISA100 Wireless certification for its PMV D3 Wireless Positioner.

The PMV D3 improves operational efficiency by allowing communication to and monitoring of process control/sensor equipment, wherever they are sited, but especially for remotely located valves. The PMV D3 increases the scope of operational awareness in the control room and in the plant when using ISA100 Wireless, which is currently unique in enabling true real-time control.

The new PMV D3 is the first valve positioner on the market to use the IEC 62734 industrial wireless standard for modulating control and monitoring of valves. This technology uses the ISA100 Wireless network protocol, enhancing safety via reliability and including features such as dual backbone routers, which provide redundant radio paths, and through user-configurable device behaviors.  Independently powered wireless signals protect against loss of signal or power from the plant.

The ISA100 Wireless certification provides assurance that the devices will interoperate in any ISA100 Wireless compliant network.

ISA100 Wireless is the only industrial wireless protocol standard to incorporate IPv6 directly as part of its network layer and transport layer. This gives ISA100 Wireless the advantage of seamless end-to end routing with “anything anywhere” effectively in a single environment.

About ISA100 Wireless
ISA100 Wireless (IEC 62734) is an international, industrial wireless networking and communications standard engineered to serve the needs of process industries. With native IPv6 networking and object architecture, ISA100 Wireless extends the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) to wirelessISA100 Wireless enables automation engineers to quickly create, modify, optimize, and scale wireless networks that are open, interoperable, and reliable for their most critical applications. ISA100 Wireless is the first standard in the ISA100 family of open standards.

About the ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute
The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute (ISA100 WCI) is a non-profit industry organization that provides users and developers with market awareness, educational information, technical support, and compliance testing for the ISA100 family of standards.
