Flowserve Digital Positioner Introduces ValveSightTM DiagnosticsCapabilities to Intrinsically Safe Market



Flowserve Corporation, a leading provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, recently announced the release of the Flowserve Logix 520MD, the latest addition to the Logix series digital positioner family. This improved smart positioner has the option to add pressure sensors and gives intrinsically safe positioner users the full diagnostic functionality of Flowserve ValveSightTM communication tools.

“The Flowserve Logix 520MD allows customers in the intrinsically safe market to take advantage of the control and insight that ValveSight delivers,” said Lakshmanan Varadharajen, director of marketing for control valves at Flowserve. “ValveSight helps customers save time and money, significantly reducing unexpected downtime by predicting potential failure modes and prioritizing maintenance recommendations before process performance degrades.”

Using industry standard HART protocol and FDT/DTM technology, the Logix 520MD is compatible with existing major host systems and integrates with major asset management systems. With ValveSight Software, the Logix 520MD allows operators and maintenance personnel to remotely monitor and diagnose the associated valve, actuator and positioner from any Windows-based PC connected to the existing plant control network or directly to the positioner without proprietary software or communications protocols.

The Logix 520MD series uses the same proven technology of the Logix 3200MD digital positioner and is built with an intrinsically safe housing. The Logix520MD uses the same housing and air relay as the Logix505, Logix510 and Logix520si models, ensuring compatibility with existing optional accessories.
