Rotork Master Station valve actuator control system
Rotork has launched the latest generation of its monitoring and control system for valve actuators and plant equipment. Suitable for use in all industries, the Rotork Master Station is capable of operating up to 240 actuators across three separate field networks, allowing the optimum network to be used in different plant areas. It now supports Modbus RTU protocol with third-party device integration and Pakscan Classic, Rotork’s standard 2-wire loop system.
The Rotork Master Station has many features to enable the management of the assets connected to it — whether the interest is in condition-based monitoring or predictive maintenance. A large touch-screen interface and webpages share the same menu structure focused on providing quick device set-up, interrogation and issue resolution. Multiple host connectivity is included and the presence of multiple databases enables the Master Station to maximise data transfer efficiency.
The Master Station can be supplied with built-in redundancy support via a hot standby configuration, allowing a replica unit to assume network control in the event of an error in the primary unit.
Installation is simple through the use of a single twisted-pair cable instead of multicore cabling. The wired control loops can operate on long loop lengths up to 20 km without external repeaters, further reducing labour, installation and commissioning costs. The product is available with either 19″ rack or panel mounting options and all wiring is easily accessible from the front panels.
