Nakakita PositionerA positioner is installed on a diaphragm type or cylinder type actuator to improve the operating characteristics of the control valve. The positioner drives the control valve, coping with the frictional resistance of gland packing and unbalanced force on the plug which prevent the movement of thy valve stem, till the valve travel corresponding to the input pneumatic signal (0,2 to 1,0 kgf/cm2) or input current signal (4 to 20 mA DC is attained. As for the features, the maximum supply air pressure is 7 kgf/cm2, and they can be used for both single action and double action actuators; they can be used for al1 pneumatic type actuators from general purpose diaphragm type to high output cylinder type.
