News Release

Emerson expands FIELDVUE™ digital valve controllers to include FDT/DTM system interface
FIELDVUE digital valve controllers easily integrate with all process control host systems

MARSHALLTOWN, IOWA (March 3, 2011) – Emerson’s Fisher® FIELDVUE  digital valve controllers with HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus communications can now be integrated into any process control system that supports FDT/DTM technology. Using ValveLink DTM software, users can communicate with any FIELDVUE digital valve controller, to perform startup, commissioning and diagnostic activities.

ValveLink software has been certified by the FDT Group for compliance with FDT standards. It has also been tested and certified for use with FDT compliant host system manufactures including Honeywell, Invensys and Yokogawa.

FIELDVUE digital valve controllers have a long history of using the AMS ValveLink SNAP-ON to integrate into HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus host systems, such as Emerson’s DeltaV™ and Ovation digital automation systems. The addition of DTM support provides another avenue to continue to this strong integration tradition for FIELDVUE instrument customers.  

Performance and reliability are the foundation for the FIELDVUE family of digital valve controllers.  Their role is to maintain control valve performance, diagnose the assembly, and enable predictive maintenance.  FIELDVUE digital valve controllers have logged millions of operating hours and have earned high praise from companies that employ their technology to improve plant availability.  Built for extreme conditions, they have proven themselves by surviving difficult process environments in   refining, chemical, nuclear, oil and gas, power, and pulp and paper industries. 

For additional information on the ValveLink DTM software or FIELDVUE digital valve controllers, contact an Emerson Process Management sales office and request the FIELDVUE digital valve controller’s brochure.
