    Product Image Type 8791

    The depiction of the products may differ from the actual specific design.

    Please consider the technical attributes and Data Sheets.

    Type Description

    The robust and compact positioner is designed for mounting on linear and rotary actuators with standardisation according to IEC 65034-6-1 or VDI/VDE 3845 (IEC 60534-6-2) The variant with remote position sensor can also be used to control Bürkert process control valves. The set-point value setting default for the digital electropneumatic positioner SideControl BASIC occurs via standard signals 4…20mA and/or via bus as an option. A digital input and optional analogue feedback are also available. The valve opening is qualitatively signalled via a mechanical display element and the device status, via 3 coloured LEDs. All operating elements are located inside the housing. Start-up is performed automatically and the following functions are enabled directly on the device via DIP switch: sealing threshold, inversion of set point signal direction, characteristic selection, manual/automatic operating state switchover. Additional options for configuration and parametrising, such as the linearisation of the operating characteristic with the aid of a freely programmable correction characteristic, are available using communication software. The pneumatic actuating system can be used equally for single-acting and double-acting actuators. It is characterised by a defined safety response in the event of the failure of the electrical or pneumatic auxiliary power and possesses an enormous air capacity range at pressure supplies up to 7 bar.

    • Compact and robust design
    • Easy start-up using Tune function
    • Integrated diagnostic functions for valve monitoring
    • Dynamic actuating system with no air consumption in controlled state
    • IO-Link, AS interface or Bürkert system bus (büS)

    For selecting the correct product please refer to the technical data, images and notes for proper use according to the data sheet.
