Siemens donates to ISA training program

08/04/2006


ISA has received four Model 55M (M43) Nullmatic controls with integral setting and transfer switch from Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc., for ISA’s technical training program.

The Nullmatic controllers are applicable to any process with a transmitter or transducer that provides a pneumatically measured variable signal. The controller can be changed from direct action (increase input, increase output) to reverse-control action by turning an external plate. Standard and fast-reset needle valves are interchangeable in these models without disassembling the controller.

ISA course attendees will be able to align and calibrate a pneumatic controller and a pneumatic positioner and perform pipe bending for pneumatic device installation on the physical equipment.

"ISA appreciates Siemens support of its training programs,” said Dale Lee, director of education services for ISA. “Providing hands-on laboratory experience is a key component of many ISA courses, and donations such as this enhance the effectiveness of the laboratory component."
