The V200EX is referred to as an “Explosion Proof” unit. It has a pre-calibrated external EX rated IP converter mounted directly to the V200P base positioner by a short adaptor plate. For rated areas of a plant where ATEX, FM, CSA, Class 1 Div II or EEx approvals are required, this product will meet those applications.
The IP converter uses the actual supply air pressure from the positioner, filtered through a specially designed filter. The IP converter then converts this pressure via an electrical signal to a
20-100kPa / 3-15psi signal back into the positioner diaphragm chamber for mechanical positioner response.
The V200EX is a two wire, 4-20mA instrument and is available for use on rotary or linear applications. It utilizes a unique spool valve, is a cam characterized, forced balanced instrument that is simple and rugged. With a rugged IP66 / NEMA 4X die cast aluminum housing and an electrostatically applied polyester coating the unit has an excellent protection against a wide range of environmental conditions.
Standard features like the external zero and span adjustment makes this positioner very user friendly for calibration and maintenance. The large indicator has scaling to operate in both direct and reverse directions. With the unique snap in drive shaft design the unit can be used for versatile mounting to various actuator applications. The gauge block is cast into the housing and therefore standard. Options like special cams, dome indicators and more are available.
The EX IP converter is available as a spare module which gives the flexibility of specifying the V200EX anywhere between the factory and the field.
