The SIPART PS2 positioner is the most widely used positioner in chemical automation for linear and part-turn actuators. Its range of stroke of up to 130mm and angle of rotation from 30° to 100° makes it a must have product.
This device is a positioner used in a variety of industries (including chemical) to control an actuator that needs to move to a precise position. What this allows is for the chemical automation operation it is implemented in, to run as smoothly as safely as possible. The SIPART PS2 makes sure that the actuator is moved to the right valve position corresponding to a certain setpoint. With this, the user has total jurisdiction over when and how the actuators move. This is a big task, and this instrument gives the user the piece of mind as they need to know that their positioner is working safely and reliably. In the case of emergency the SIPART PS2 ensures that ESD valves (emergency shutdown) and other open/close automated valves are still able to be moved. As previously mentioned there are certain safety concerns that someone may have when user a positioner. This instrument comes standard with IP66 or NEMA 4x degree of protection, proving that is will be reliable in the most hostile of chemical automation locations and conditions.
With regards to the technology, the SIPART PS2 is designed to be simple and easy to use while also being extremely advanced. Therefore, operation and configuration is done through the devices three buttons and a user-friendly two-line display. Beyond that communications can be integrated with PROFIBUS PA, Foundation Fieldbus or HART protocol. What all this means is that the user will able to effectively use the instrument while also being 100% sure of its capabilities.
