West P4170 1/4 Din Valve Motor Controller

The new + Series VMD Controllers have been specifically designed for open loop valve motor drive applications and feature an improved + Series interface and greater field flexibility.

•  Jumperless Configuration              •  Auto or Manual Tuning

•  Auto Detected Hardware                •  Motorised Valve Control

•  Process & Loop Alarms                  •  Ramping Setpoint

•  Modbus Communications               •  Remote/Dual Setpoint Options

Technical Data

Control Types Full PID with Pre-tune, Self-tune and manual tuning modes.
Valve Control Open Loop Valve Motor Drive
Auto Manual Selectable from front panel or via digital input, with bumpless transfer.
Output Configuration Up to 5 possible, two required for valve control, additional outputs for alarm, 24VDC transmitter power supply or retransmit of process value or setpoint
Human Interface

4 button operation, dual 4 digit 10mm & 8mm high LED displays, optional choice of colours (Red/Red, Red/Green, Green/Red or Green/Green), plus 5 LED indicators

Thermocouple J, K, C, R, S, T, B, L, N & PtRh20%vsPtRh40%.
RTD 3 Wire PT100, 50Ω per lead maximum (balanced)
DC Linear 0 to 20mA, 4 to 20mA, 0 to 50mV, 10 to 50mV, 0 to 5V, 1 to 5V, 0 to 10V, 2 to 10V. Scaleable -1999 to 9999, with adjustable decimal point
