  10. Siemens Extends Its Positioner Portfolio With Sipart PS100
    4/2/2019

    With the Sipart PS100, Siemens is presenting a new positioner that is impressively easy to commission and highly robust. The Sipart PS100 can be initialized quickly at the touch of a button, automatically adjusting itself to the attached valve. If required, it is possible to optimize the positioner for a specific application with just one further touch of a button. Just as some cameras feature portrait, sport or night mode, the positioner can be set to different modes for precise and fast adjustment, open/close operation and other applications. These functionalities save time, cut the costs of commissioning, and increase the return on investment.
