Type 8696 are compact positioners that integrate simply and reliably with the Type 23xx/2103 pneumatically operated process valves. They are specially designed for hygienic process environments.
Simple installation through automatic tune function and setting through DIP-switch: Close tight function, Characteristic curves selection, Reversal of effective direction, Switching manual /automatic operation, Binary input.
Functions are activated using push-buttons and DIP switches or a PC interface.
Remote setpoint adjustment via a 4-20 mA signal. A contact-free continuous sensor measures the position of the valve spindle.
A software interface can be used for, amongst others, linearisation of the operation characteristics by using free programmable fixed points. The valve position indication is shown through LED components.
As an option an analogue position feedback can be integrated.
