Emerson Process Management has expanded its Smart Wireless solutions family with the release of the Fisher 4320 Wireless Position Monitor with On/Off Control Output Option - the WirelessHART valve automation solution that includes linkage-less position feedback and discrete valve control.
The monitor changes the economics of automating discrete valves as an alternative to solenoids and limit switches. By eliminating the need for wires, the project cost and project time are reduced by minimising engineering time, materials, control system I/O, and installation labour. For simplicity, traditional quarter turn valves and pneumatic actuators are used - only air is needed to automate a valve. Wireless valve solutions from Emerson install and commission quickly, providing users with a cost-effective way to achieve real-time discrete valve control with position feedback.
Like other devices in the Emerson wireless family, the Fisher 4320 has secure and reliable performance, a 5 to 10 year SmartPower battery life, and is fully compatible with existing Smart Wireless self-organising mesh networks.
