AXIOM® Expeditor with Intermediate Control Improves Plant Operation
StoneL's new AXIOM® Expeditor (AMI80) allows standard discrete (open/closed) automated
valves to be upgraded to offer expanded capabilities with intermediate control, such as fill
control, flow dampening, and thermal shock reduction. The AXIOM® Expeditor may improve
process performance and prevent damage to process equipment.
(PRWEB) May 13, 2010 -- STONEL®, a leader in valve communication and control technology, announces the
availability of a new addition to the field-proven AXIOM series. The AXIOM series features integral valve
monitoring with non-contact position sensing and discrete control capabilities for automated on/off valves.
The AXIOM® Expeditor (AMI80) allows standard discrete (open/closed) automated valves to be readily
upgraded to offer expanded capabilities with intermediate control. Fill control, flow dampening, and thermal
shock reduction are a few application examples where the Expeditor may improve process performance and
prevent damage to equipment. No special pneumatic bleed pilots or air filtration systems are required with the
AXIOM’s standard pneumatic solenoid technology.
Full open and closed cycling, as well as intermediate control, is achieved using the Expeditor’s simple operation
and control system integration. A standard discrete 24 VDC output is used for the On/Off solenoid operation and
a 4-20mA analog input is used for intermediate control. Valve position monitoring is performed via a standard
4-20mA input circuit so exact valve position may be observed at all times.
Calibration may be performed quickly and easily using the AXIOM Expeditor’s push button control. The unit is
set up by following a few simple on-board instructions and may be completed in a matter of seconds!
With expanded control and monitoring capabilities, the AXIOM Expeditor offers unparalleled value in batch
