Press Release Summary:
Featuring integrated microprocessor, Type 3738 electronic valve position monitor is contactless, magneto resistive sensor system that indicates end positions and controls actuators. Device works with NAMUR signal in compliance with IEC 60947-5-6 and is powered by 2 wire supply. Including self-tuning and diagnostics functions, device can be used on on/off valves in any application. Supply air for actuator is routed through bores at bottom of housing, eliminating additional tubing.
Original Press Release:
Simple Set-up and Retrofit for Valve Position Monitor
A self-diagnostic valve position monitor which can be used on on/off valves in all fields of application is the latest addition to the SAMSON CONTROL range of valves and accessories. The Type 3738 electronic valve position monitor, which indicates end positions and controls actuators, is a contactless, magneto resistive sensor system with an integrated microprocessor. It enables the valve position monitor to be configured, simply at the push of a button.
This innovative device works with a NAMUR signal in compliance with IEC 60947-5-6 and is powered by a two-wire supply. As a result, the valve position monitor can replace existing solenoid valves and limit switches without the time consuming process of changing wiring or signal levels. At the same time, it includes functions like self-tuning and diagnostics, which opens up a wide range of opportunities for control and asset management.
The supply air for the actuator is routed through bores at the bottom of the housing, making additional tubing unnecessary. This makes it suitable for integrated attachment, which facilitates mounting and guarantees exceptional ruggedness. The contactless position sensor makes adjustments as well as moving levers redundant.
