Designed for control valves,
by control valve people.
A single instrument solution can
meet your control valve reliability,
performance, and diagnostics needs
across your facility. The Fisher®
FIELDVUE™ DVC6200 Series digital
valve controller is a valve-mounted,
microprocessor-based instrument from
Emerson that brings intelligence to the
entire control valve assembly.
This technology makes it possible
to set a more aggressive loop strategy
that, at the same time, is more stable
and reliable.
The reliability of the FIELDVUE
DVC6200 instrument, plus its on-line
monitoring capabilities, enables our
operators to avoid manual checks
and valve repairs in areas filled with
ammonia vapors.
To optimize process control, I start by
improving control valve performance.
I’ve made sure that every critical valve
has a FIELDVUE controller.
Operations are stretching the limits
of their processes, so the FIELDVUE
instrument has evolved to meet these
needs. Keep your process in control
using vital, real-time information about
control valve assemblies. Information
can be accessed anywhere along the
loop. The FIELDVUE instrument is
available with either the HART® 5 or 7,
WirelessHART,® Foundation™ fieldbus, or
PROFIBUS® communication protocol.

Reducing process variability is
key to improving product quality.
The performance of the FIELDVUE
instrument allows for your operation
to run closer to setpoint, improving
product quality with more accurate
control. Using FIELDVUE Performance
Diagnostics, valve operation is
monitored online to evaluate
performance and reliability.
Where critical loops
make a difference.
Accurate and fast response.
Users depend on the FIELDVUE
instrument in their most critical loops
where valve performance impacts the
bottom line. It is used every day in
critical applications such as: compressor
antisurge, basis weight, fermenter
backpressure, feedwater recirculation,
attemperator spraywater, and main
steam pressure control.
Improve control.
The faster and more accurately a valve
moves, the greater the impact to the
bottom line. The FIELDVUE instrument
responds better and achieves higher
loop performance and stability thanks to
minor loop feedback and the proprietary
control algorithm. This unique design
maintains superior performance even as
the control valve ages.
The FIELDVUE instrument is paired
with Fisher sliding-stem and rotary
control valves to achieve precise
positioning accuracy and fast response
to process changes. They work
together to provide superior dynamic
performance to help you reduce
process variability.
You can mount the FIELDVUE
instrument to non-Emerson
pneumatic actuators to help
improve performance and reliability.
Control closer to the
optimum setpoint
with less variability.
Fisher valves with FIELDVUE
instruments undergo in-line dynamic
performance testing. We evaluate the
assembly’s ability to reduce variability.

Minor loop feedback is the key to better
valve assembly performance. It allows the
assembly to achieve higher gains, respond
better, and give remarkable stability regardless of
actuator size, actuator type, and service conditions.
The FIELDVUE instrument
provides the performance
needed for valves that are
equipped with a fast-stroke,
antisurge accessory package.
10 | A Single Instrument Solution
The FIELDVUE instrument helps you
save time and money. It provides a
stream of actionable information that
can be used to improve maintenance
planning and reduce process downtime.
Pinpoint problems.
Visual inspection of control valve
assemblies is time consuming, may
present safety concerns, and might
not reveal hidden issues. FIELDVUE
diagnostics can pinpoint problems in
control valve assemblies that will lead to
performance degradation or loss of loop
availability. Tests can be performed
online with the control valve assembly
in-service, with no interference to the
process, or offline when the process is
shutdown or bypassed.
Maintenance ease.
It’s simple to rebuild a FIELDVUE
instrument in the field or on the
bench. Three field-hardened modular
components make repair a snap. From
the front, modules can be switched
without disturbing instrument
mounting, air supply tubing, or field
wiring. Parts and procedures are
common across the DVC6200 Series.
Access diagnostics from
almost anywhere.
Configure, calibrate, and diagnose a
FIELDVUE instrument from a central
location or with portable tools such
as ValveLink™ Mobile software. While
online and in-service, information
is presented in an easy-to-interpret
interface that provides actionable
recommendations to the user.
Wireless access to diagnostics.
It can be easy and cost effective to
implement HART communication
with a legacy control system. Critical
diagnostic information can be
remotely accessed by adding a 775
Smart Wireless THUM™ adapter to an
existing HART FIELDVUE instrument.
Integration without hassles.
Connect field devices from many
suppliers to your control system—
seamless integration is essential.
The interoperability of the FIELDVUE
instrument is tested and certified to
conform to HART, Foundation fieldbus,
and Profibus standards. Integration
testing and certification has been
completed by the FDT Group and
major control system manufacturers,
including Emerson, ABB, Honeywell,
Invensys, Kongsberg, Siemens,
SUPCON, and Yokogawa.
Diagnostic tests can be run locally
with ease and mobility using the
475 Field Communicator with
ValveLink Mobile software. Catwalks,
ladders, or other difficult locations
no longer present a barrier.
Maintenance Shop
Ruggedized and portable tools enable easy valve setup and
troubleshooting in the field. Saved data from ValveLink Mobile can
seamlessly transfer to asset management software.
Maintenance personnel use ValveLink diagnostics to assure valve
calibration and performance prior to commissioning and during

+ I worry about having the proper spares for the wide variety of valve applications in our facility.
With the DVC6200 Series, it is possible to cover a majority of applications with a single instrument. The mounting changes from
valve assembly to valve assembly. Few spare parts are required, which are common between instruments.
+ Valve diagnostics are great, but I can’t shut down my process to use them.
FIELDVUE instrument users can diagnose, analyze, and trend valve diagnostic data while the valves are in service. You are given a
real-time, accurate picture of valve health, not just numbers and graphs, without impacting your process.
+ We can’t spend all day in front of a PC, waiting for a problem. Digital valve controllers should tell me
when there is a problem.
You decide when the FIELDVUE instrument collects diagnostic data. Schedule it to collect data automatically or when triggered by
a certain event. Or configure ValveLink software’s Event Messenger feature to email you when a critical problem is detected.
+ Our old control system has analog I/O. I’m not going to see the benefit of a digital valve controller.
You can experience the benefits of the FIELDVUE instrument regardless of the age of the control system. Real-time information,
including alerts and performance trending, can be presented to operations without changing control system I/O. Smart Wireless
THUM adapters make it convenient to bring critical valve data to a central point within the facility.
+ I don’t want to buy new asset management software just to communicate with my digital valve
ValveLink software integrates into existing asset management software and communicates with all FIELDVUE instruments. It has
been tested and approved by most control system manufacturers, including Emerson, ABB, Honeywell, Invensys, Kongsberg,
Siemens, SUPCON, and Yokogawa.
+ My safety valves are too complex. How can I simplify?
In a single device, you can accomplish safety demand, partial stroke, and position transmitter functions. The DVC6200SIS
instrument is SIL3 capable and provides the safety shutdown function as a type A device. This can eliminate the need for hardware
redundancy. The position transmitter is also SIL certified and is power independent of the positioner loop.
+ We have valve assemblies from several manufacturers, not just Emerson. Can we really standardize
on the DVC6200 Series?
The FIELDVUE instrument has been mounted on every major control valve and actuator assembly, regardless of manufacturer—
not just Emerson.
+ It’s cumbersome to carry a PC into a process environment. Our technicians need simple, rugged
tools for setup and calibration.
Fisher ValveLink Mobile software makes setup and calibration easy. It goes where you go—no PC required. Installed on your 475
Field Communicator, you can take it into hazardous areas where your FIELDVUE instrument is located.
