Extra High Temperature V200P

D400 Expanded
The V200P EHT (Extra High Temp) is rated for service from -40 to 325 F, offering a wide range of temperature applications. This pneumatic positioner is a very simple, force balance, spool valve positioner that not only handles high temperatures, but the Nema 4X enclosed is very rugged, can be mounted in any quadrant, and handles vibration very well. The special painting and high temp seals are selected for this product. The zero and span to the positioner can be accessed externally, so the cover doesn't have to be removed for calibration. The unique snap in spindle (drive shaft) design offers versatile mounting to various actuator applications including rotary or linear actuators.   If you have any questions on this product please call us today at

D400 Adaptive Control
The D400 has an option called Adaptive Control which is a self learning option.  When we calibrate a D400 on a valve package in the shop the dynamics on the valve are different static than when the valve is inserted into the flow.  The Adaptive Control feature will make adjustments on the fly while in service, constantly updating to optimize the best control parameters. 
The adaptive control feature is found in the control level and can be left
in adaptive control or if you feel the valve package is functioning at it's optimal level than you can put the D400 into control fix.  Control Fix is the operating level where it runs on stored parameters and does not change.
If you have any questions regarding the D400 and the Adaptive Control feature please call anyone at VAC.
