Emerson Process Management’s Fisher Fieldvue digital valve controller sales surpassed 1.5-million shipped worldwide, the company said Oct. 23. 

The newest generation of the Fieldvue instrument line, the DVC6200 series digital valve controller, features linkage-less, non-contact feedback technology that was designed to extend system operating life by withstanding high levels of vibration, corrosion or material entrapment.

Potential user benefits include the availability of equipment alerts that notify of pending issues, automated configuration, calibration and tuning and access to advanced levels of valve assembly diagnostics. With the self-diagnostic capability of the Fieldvue digital valve controller, questions about valve performance can be answered without pulling the valve from the line.

The DVC6200 series is offered with ATEX, CSA, IECEx and FM hazardous area approvals as well as other certifications/approvals. It is also listed in the Lloyd’s Register for industrial, marine and offshore use.
