Fisher® FIELDVUE™ DVC6200

Fisher® FIELDVUE™ DVC6200 digital valve controllers are HART® communicating, microprocessor-based current-to-pneumatic instruments with linkage-less, non-contact travel feedback. Three important functions are performed by the DVC6200 instrument:

  • Traditional positioning of a control valve by converting the 4-20mA DC input signal from the process controller to a pneumatic output signal to the actuator.
  • Automatic calibration and configuration utilizing the power of microprocessor technology.
  • Communication capability via the HART communications protocol to provide instrument and valve diagnostic information.

This instrument provides one platform for any pneumatic actuator application. The DVC6200 can be installed on sliding-stem, rotary, single- or double-acting actuators
