cost-saving new diagnostic capabilitiesEmerson Process Management has released cost-saving new diagnostic capabilities in its FieldQ rack & pinion fully integrated valve actuator and controls. The updated capabilities greatly simplify daily work practices with the release of FieldQ FOUNDATION fieldbus Version 3, with device diagnostic alarm management in a flexible modular package. The enhanced diagnostic alarm tools enable users to categorize and prioritize device alarms based on the criticality of the device and the severity of the problem detected by the diagnostics. Alarm settings can be configured to alert appropriate plant personnel so they can take action without being distracted by irrelevant alarms.

The FieldQ product modularity further extends efficiency by offering plug-and-play modules for many requirements including explosion-proof and intrinsically safe capabilities as well as bus communication options. In addition, control modules are available for diagnostics such as travel time, cycle counts, time in position, and module temperature. This capability enhances field services capabilities and makes user interface more cost effective.
