Valve Position Monitors Provide cCSAus Certification
K Controls has introduced two new valve position monitors, designed for use in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries. The 007-100 and 007-120 Exd IIC Position Monitors are ATEX and IECEx certified for use in gas Zones 1 and 2 and dust Zones 21 and 22. The CE-marked, IP67 enclosures are supplied in either coated aluminum or ANC 4B (316) stainless steel.
The 007-100 is a compact solution that can contain up to two switches or 0a 4-20mA position transmitter. The larger 007-120 can contain up to four switches and a 4-20mA position transmitter. The 007-120 now carries cCSAus certification marking for use in the United States and Canada. cCSAus certification of the 007-100 is expected in 2012.
Switch options include micro switches, hermetically sealed, magnetically operated reed switches, and standard or failsafe inductive proximity sensors. The monitors are designed to accommodate the latest version of the Klearvision position indicator and can be fitted to a wide range of quarter turn or linear valve actuators. Metric and NPT cable entries up to M25 and ¾-inch are also available.
