Emerson Process Management has expanded its Smart Wireless solutions family with the release of the Fisher 4320 wireless position monitor with an on/off control output option. The WirelessHART valve automation solution includes linkage-less position feedback and discrete valve control.
The monitor eliminates the need for wires, helping to reduce project cost and project time by minimizing engineering time, materials, control system I/O and installation labor. For simplicity, Emerson used traditional quarter turn valves and pneumatic actuators, so only air is needed to automate a valve.
The Fisher 4320 has a five-year to 10-year SmartPower battery life and is fully compatible with existing Smart Wireless self-organizing mesh networks.
