8694 Digital Electo-Pneumatic Positioner

Integrated Mounting : Process Control Valves.

A Compact positioner for integrated mounting on pneumatically operated process valves. Remote set-point adjustment via a 4-20 mA signal or through AS-Interface.A contact-free analog position sensor measures the position of the valve spindle.

Simple installation through automatic tune function and setting through DIP-switch:

  • Close tight function
  • Characteristic curves selection
  • Reversal of effective direction
  • Switching manual /automatic operation
  • Binary input

Additional parametrisation options are possible through DTM devices.

A software interface can be used for, amongst others, linearisation of the operation characteristics by using free programmable fixed points. The valve position indication is shown through LED components. As an option an analogue position feedback can be integrated.

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 below.
