TURCK, represented in Australia by Micromax , has released a valve position sensor that allows for direct connection to DeviceNet field bus networks. The Ni 4-DSU35-2DNETX5-H1150 is a durable solid-state sensor designed for use in harsh industrial environments. Incorporating dual outputs, the inductive sensor is used in tandem with an actuation kit (puck) to monitor the position of rotary actuators.
The sensor is DeviceNet-compatible with standard M12 eurofast connections optimising communication speed for quick data exchange at the field level and reducing connection costs. The compact, low-profile sensor provides open and closed positions on most 90° actuators for direct valve control. It gives the user both a visual and electrical position indication.
The sensor can be mounted on several different actuator sizes without requiring additional adapters or spacer plates. The Ni 4-DSU35-2DNETX5-H1150 is manufactured to the VDI/VDE 3845 mounting specification and can be used on valve stem heights of 20mm, 30mm or 50mm with outer mounting hole dimensions of either 80mm or 130mm.
