Time is money

Easy and fast installation is the first place your valve controllers can start saving you money. In most cases, our solutions require less cabling and tubing, and are designed to be directly mounted onto virtually any spring return or double acting actuator, regardless of make, model or manufacturer. Compared to conventional options, pairing our products with a AS-interface protocol system can save up to 30% overall, with the savings mostly coming from conduit and wiring. Simple and smart design also means faster installation times, which again saves valuable time and money.

Remote access

Reducing physical human presence in production facilities is a matter of both personnel safety and hygiene. Wireless remote solutions such as our Wireless Link utilizing Bluetooth® technology. This allows you to set the sensors remotely on an iPhone or iPad from as far as 50 meters away. Remote monitoring allows you to follow critical parameters, plan predictive maintenance and avoid expensive unplanned downtime.
