With the “DeviceConfig” software you can set the parameters for the 8049 positioner (Ex, 2-/4-conductor) and the 2030 and 2032 motor actuators from Schubert & Salzer in just a few simple steps and then obtain valuable diagnostic data for optimization of the process.
To make setting and changing the parameters for the valve characteristics easy, DeviceConfig contains a separate setup file for each type of valve. The file can then be easily loaded into the software and then downloaded to the positioner or actuator. It allows you to adjust the accuracy, and for motor actuators even the control and/or actuation speed.
Using DeviceConfig, it is even possible to create split range settings, i.e. set the parameters of two devices so that they receive a common control signal and operate as a unit. The parameters of the corresponding valves can then be set so that they interact, e.g. for temperature control or for even higher control qualities.
Valuable Diagnostic Information
DeviceConfig also provides a variety of useful diagnostic data for quick and easy troubleshooting or for control optimization. Among other values, you can read the hardware and software version of the connected device, e.g. the total number of hours of operation, the total operating time, the previous valve travel, or the number of switching operations of the pulse valves.
Due to the acquisition of the temperature and way classes (corresponds to the amount of time in defined temperature and stroke ranges), valuable data for optimizing the control is generated. This data can serve as a basis for changing the nominal size and/or the Kvs value of the valve.
Furthermore, the software contains numerous additional diagnostic functions such as live monitoring of the signal stability and the control response of individual valves. They can be viewed after starting the program in the “Demo mode”, for example. The Demo mode allows you to test and/or preview the software even when it is not connected to a positioner or motor actuator.
All maintenance data and settings of the connected positioner or motor actuator can be exported to a file in the PDF format for troubleshooting or maintenance purposes or for long-term to documentation and storage purposes.
Bluetooth connection with up to 255 devices:
Up to 255 devices can be read out wirelessly via Bluetooth module (separately available for 8049-4, 2030, and 2032 only). A separate USB connector is available as an alternative.
