PLC networked valve

06 January 2020

Durapipe UK has launched a new network controlled actuated valve.

The new Actuator Network Module (ANMod) is operated via a communicator device contained within an IP66 rated protective casing. 

Durapipe’s first ANMod device incorporates a Profibus Protocol slave communicator  which is able to offer a complete solution with the valve, actuator and communicator all supplied as one pre-programmed, pre-wired solution. This eliminates the need for any additional power supply, and minimises set-up and installation time.
The device positions the Profibus module in a separate housing outside the actuator. This unique design ensures it is easy to maintain the valve and actuator without the risk of damage to the Profibus module.
ANMod is compatible with a variety of PLCs that use Profibus, with the new Durapipe solution supporting Profibus DP V0 and V1. 
As the most frequently used valves within industrial control networks and the water utility sector, a selection of Durapipe VKD and TKD ball valves can be utilised with ANMod.  Durapipe VKD and L and T port TKD valves, in any configuration of size, material, flange and failsafe option, combined with a 110 – 230V AC or 24V AC/DC electric actuator, can be fitted with ANMod. Other network protocols, such as Profinet, CC-Link and Modbus are available on request.
