8694 Digital Electo-Pneumatic Positioner

Integrated Mounting : Process Control Valves.

The Type 8696 is a compact positioner for integrated mounting on pneumatically operated process valves utilizing a Burkert 50mm actuator. Remote setpoint adjustment via a 4-20 mA signal.

A contact-free continuous 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

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.

PLEASE NOTE: An adapter kit (p/n 673765) is required for connection to Type 2103 valves. Please order the adapter kit below.
