Online monitoring consists of leakage detection, capture of ESD & pressure measurement. Online monitoring is typically conducted on critical valves where users can monitor a valves performance and do a root cause analysis of errors and malfunctions of the valve.
The IDC24 from Val Controls is used for online monitoring of valves. The IDC24 Intelligent Diagnostic Controller has an integrated microprocessor with flexible software, enabling it to fit almost any hydraulic and pneumatic, rotary and linear, double acting and spring return actuator on the market.
The data of the online monitoring is stored locally in the IDC24 unit, where it can be transferred to a local server or extracted directly from the unit.
