Emerson has extended the Fisher Fieldview digital valve controller family with the addition of the Fieldvue DVC6200p Profibus PA digital positioner. Emerson has extended the Fisher Fieldview digital valve controller family with the addition of the Fieldvue DVC6200p Profibus PA digital positioner. This new controller is built on Fisher’s linkage-less non-contact sensor technology.

For throttling control applications the Fieldvue DVC6200p offers an analog output function block, while a digital output function block is available for on/off applications. Utilizing the best of Profibus PA, the DVC6200p provides a wealth of alerts, trends, and diagnostics to allow for process visibility and control not previously available in a Profibus PA digital valve controller.

Setup and calibration, including performance tuning, can be performed locally in a matter of minutes. For more extensive parameterization, Profibus configuration tools such as Siemens PDM can be used. The DVC6200p supports enhanced device description (EDD) files that allow for quick and easy configuration.

The Fieldvue DVC6200p is certified to Profile 3.02 for Profibus PA devices by the Profibus Nutzerorganisation a.V (PNO). CSA, IEC Ex, and FM approvals are available now for the DVC6200p. Emerson’s growing portfolio of Profibus-supported interoperable products includes the DeltaV digital automation system, AMS Suite asset management software, Fisher control valves, Rosemount flow, pressure, and temperature transmitters, Rosemount Analytical transmitters, and Micro Motion Coriolis mass flowmeters.
