V200 4 to 20 mA feedback
In our June issue of the VACPAC Product News this article and tip sheet for calibration of the V200 4 to 20 mA feedback was introduced. We felt that it assisted customers so we have decided to leave this article in this months issue. Please review  or review again and let us know if you have any questions. 

  

The set up of the 4 to 20 mA feedback is critical to the ease of calibration.  We have gotten a few calls over the past months from customers that have really gotten the feedback way out of calibration, so far that the feedback would not read back anything that was correct.  We asked our engineer to put together a little sheet on calibration of the feedback and what to do to get the feedback back to factory settings.  Please find it below and if you click on the picture below it will take you to the full pdf version of it on the VAC website under technical support on the homepage.

VAC would like to thank all of our customers for a great summer.  We look forward to working hard the rest of the way to close 2011.  In this newsletter we will be spotlighting the R300 product, discussing the calibration procedures for the V200 feedback, and also introducing a new contest for retrofit pictures.

As always we are here for you, so if you have any questions or comments please give us a call or send us an email.

Thank you for your support!

R300 Switch box
The R300 is a limit switch and/or a 4 to 20mA feedback standalone switch. The R300 is different from the more popular R100, where the R100 directly couples to the V100 the R300 is designed to be a standalone switch box.  As you can see in the picture below the mounting is very similar to the V100, the flexibility of having spindles gives the customers the flexibility to mount the R300 on a wide range of valve packages.

Here are a few applications where the R300 was used.  These are not your typical switch applications, but because of the flexibility in mounting, ease of calibration, and the wide range (degrees) of switch settings, these customers looked at these applications as another way for VAC products to shine.
