Wireless Valve Monitoring System

June 7, 2012

Westlock Controls has launched a new wireless valve monitoring system to provide improved efficiency and safety in plant operations. Specifically designed for both manual and automated valves, this new system integrates directly with a plant control system using wireless technology to achieve greater monitoring visibility of valve equipment. As a specialist in valve monitoring and control, Westlock has developed its new wireless monitoring solution as an integrated unit with direct mounting to valves or actuators. In addition, the design takes advantage of Westlock’s distinctive beacon visual indicator, unsurpassed portfolio of size and material options and expertise in hazardous applications. Westlock developed the new system to overcome the capital investment and space obstacles to installing a valve-monitoring infrastructure.
