8691 Control Head

Integrated Mounting : Process Valves

The 8691 control head is optimized for integrated mounting on the 2103 process valve series. The registration of the valve end position is done through a contact-free analog position sensor, which automatically recognizes and saves the valve end position through the Teach function when starting up. The integrated pilot valve controls single or double-acting actuators. As an option a field-bus interface, AS-Interface or DeviceNet, can be chosen. The design of the control unit and the actuator enables an internal control air channel without external tubing. Besides the electrical position feedback signal the status of the device is shown directly on the control head itself through colored powerful LED's showing a clear visible valve position status, even under dirty or dark environments.

The product listed above come standard with (2) mechanical switches and 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 below.
