Intelligent valves offer two way comms

Intelligent valves from Norgren are able to send messages over fieldbuses as well as receive. This allows them to warn operators of impending failures, allowing preventative maintenance to be carried out in scheduled downtime.

Simplifying integration of the system, the intelligent valves are compatible with Profibus DP, DeviceNet, CANopen, and Interbus-S, and can be linked to an AS-interface. Up to 64 valves can be driven from one fieldbus driver.
