Don’t get left in the dark – learn how fail-safe behavior can work for you!

June 2021, MARIETTA, GA ~
What happens when you lose power to your smart valve?

The fail-safe functionality for smart valves comes in handy more often than you may think. A valve positioner’s fail-safe behavior kicks in during events like electrical power failures, loss of air, and too much material build-up, shutting it down. It’s a critical piece of a process and its automation systems, but it has downfalls – like not shutting down in the most optimal position.

When your valve positioner enters fail-safe mode, you can now decide HOW the valve reacts, not just WHEN it reacts. Choices of fail-safe, fail to open, and fail in place enable you to react appropriately and run your plant more effectively.
