The Type 8792 SideControl is a digital electropneumatic positioner and process controller used for Bürkert control valves. It is part of the ELEMENT range of integrated valves and controllers.
The robust and compact positioner is designed to standardisation acc. to IEC 534-6 or VDI/ VDE 3845 for assembly with linear and rotary actuators. In addition, the remote version with the displacement position sensor can be combined with Bürkert process control valves.
Operation occurs via the external operation and display module with a backlit graphical display. The user operation is very simple and clear, identical to the Bürkert positioner or process controller TopControl, Type 8692/8693.
The digital electropneumatic positioner SideControl can be operated with the usual current and voltage standard signals and can also be equipped with the fieldbus interface PROBUS DPV1 or DeviceNET. The Positioner is equipped with additional diagnostic functions to monitor the state of the valve.
Through status signals, valve diagnostic messages are transmitted according to NAMUR NE 107 recommendations and recorded as history. With the diagnosis, the operating conditions of the control valve can be monitored. This allows planned maintenance and optimises plant availability.
The pilot valve system can be used equally for single and double-acting actuators. It is characterised by a defined safety feature in case of failure of the electrical or pneumatic power supply and possesses an enormous air capacity range with pressure supply up to 7 bar.
