New valve positioner for hazardous applications

Westlock Controls announced a new addition to its ICoT smart valve positioner 6000 series. Designed with strong aluminium and stainless steel enclosures and certified as explosion-proof to global standards, the positioners suit both spring-return and double-acting actuators for rotary and linear valves. It complies with US NEC standards as well as ATEX, IEC and INMETRO certification for the rest of the world.

The ICoT 6000’s strong enclosures provide excellent protection in hazardous areas, making it suitable for virtually any process environment. A standard external calibration porting system allows the user to calibrate the positioner in explosion-proof areas without the need to remove the cover. The unit has remote mount capability up to 45m away from the valve, advanced auto-calibration as well as adjustable valve speed via user control. The positioner is available with HART communication protocol, and would be available with FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA network capability in 2014.

Designed for use in petrochemical, oil & gas facilities and process plants, the ICoT 6000 provides easy access to wiring terminal connectors, easily accommodated large stroke valves, such as knife gates, and is available with an internal 3-button interface and graphical LCD visible through an explosion-proof site glass.
