Positioner TopControl

The compact Positioner Type 8692 is optimized for integrated mounting on the pneumatic actuators in the process valve series Type 23XX/2103 and is specially designed for the requirements of a hygienic process environment. The control air channel is integrated in the actuator without external tubing. The easy handling and the selection of additional software functions are done either on a big graphic display with back-light and keypad or over a PC interface. The Positioner registers the valve position without deterioration through a contact-free, analog position sensor. The control of single or double-acting actuators is done without internal air consumption. Communication interfaces such as Profibus DPV1 or DeviceNet and analogue as well as binary feedback can also be chosen.

The product listed above comes standard with multipole connectors. For inductive switches or cable gland connection, please contact PAW for pricing.

PLEASE NOTE: An adapter kit (p/n 665721) is required for connection to Type 2103 valves. Please order the adapter kit under the accessory tab.
