Ultrasonic Positioner measures travel of valve blade.
Valve Positioners

Ultrasonic Positioner measures travel of valve blade.

EP 2000 compares valve position to valve control signal, and provides valve open, valve closed, positioner start, positioner stop, and valve blade not in position indications. It works with 4 to 20 mA signal from DCS system, where at 4 mA signal valve is completely closed, at 20 mA completely open. Probe can also be trained to use 4 to 20 mA signal for partially opening and closing valve.
