E69P Current-to-Pneumatic Valve Positioner


! DANGER This valve positioner may have agency certification for installation in hazardous locations or for intrinsic safety. Use of the valve positioner in atmospheres for which it has not been certified can cause an explosion resulting in death or injury. Refer to label affixed to the valve positioner for type of certification and observe applicable wiring practices. For conditions of certification, see Table 1, Product Safety Specifications.

Introduction
General Description
The E69P Current-to-Pneumatic Valve Positioner (Figure 1) is a yoke-mounted instrument that converts a dc milliampere input signal to a pneumatic output. The output is calibrated for a specific valve stroke rather than for a pneumatic output signal. The positioner will deliver all the air required, limited to its supply pressure, to reposition the valve stem to satisfy a given input. When the positioner is shipped on a valve yoke, it is calibrated for the proper action and stroke. When shipped separately, it is calibrated for increase-increase air-to-raise action, and for a stroke of approximately 25 mm (1 in) when used with a P50 Actuator. Recalibration will be required if not used in the above mode.

Principle of Operation
A milliampere dc input signal is converted to a proportional valve stem position in the following manner (see Figure 2): A coil, positioned in the field of a permanent magnet, exerts a tangential thrust proportional to the direct current input signal flowing through it. This thrust moves the flapper with respect to the nozzle thereby changing the air output pressure of a pneumatic relay. The output pressure is applied to the pneumatic actuator which moves the valve stem. The motion of the valve stem is fed back to the nozzle by a direct mechanical linkage, producing a throttling relationship between the flapper and the nozzle.

Refer to Dimensional Print DP 018-440 for positioner dimensions and installation data.

Mounting Positioner on Valve Yoke


Before mounting the positioner, check that the positioner action (specified in sales order) is compatible with the valve actuator action. If necessary, reverse the positioner output (see Reversing Positioner Output procedure). Mounting details are shown in Figure 3.
NOTE

Positioner is shipped with all mounting hardware.

Figure 3. ! CAUTION In normal fail-safe action, an increasing input produces an increasing output and opens the valve. Thus the valve closes on failure of current input or air supply. Proper action for the specific application must be determined in each case.

Installation

Connecting Positioner to Valve Stem


Depending on valve and actuator used, actuating pin and connection arrangement may vary. Check that linkage is not obstructed during full stroke of valve. For connection details, see Figure 4.

Figure 4.

Installation Piping and Wiring


Installation piping and wiring are shown in Figure 5. After the positioner is completely installed on the valve, it must be calibrated to the valve stroke before being put into operation.

Figure 5.

Calibration

MI 018-440 January 1985

Calibration
For simplicity, the procedure below assumes a valve positioner with a 4 to 20 mA input and a 20 to 100 kPa or 3 to 15 psi output. For other ranges, substitute the applicable values. The specific input and output are listed on the data plate.

Equipment Set-up
Calibration set-up is shown in Figure 6.
NOTE

Accuracy is dependent on accuracy of milliammeter. For 0.5% accuracy use DVM across a 100 precision resistor in place of milliammeter.

Visual Check
1. Determine if the positioner motor and span pivot assembly (shown in Figure 7) are in the correct mode of operation per the table below for actuator action desired. Actuator Action Span Pivot Assembly Air-to-Raise Air-to-Lower Air-to-Raise Position Motor

INC-INC INC-DEC INC-INC Air-to-Lower Position INC-DEC

2. If necessary, correct position of motor by referring to Reversing Positioner Output section. 3. If necessary, correct span pivot position by turning span screw (shown in Figure 7) clockwise for air-to-lower position and counterclockwise for air-to-raise position.

Alignment Procedure
1. Remove output line and set up equipment as shown in Figure 6. 2. Apply midrange signal input. 3. See Figure 8. Pinch nozzle tubing to drive actuator beyond mid-stroke position. Close shutoff valve. Bleed air from actuator until stem is at 50%.
NOTE

Circuit and/or actuator may leak slightly. Occasionally check stem position to be certain stem remains at 50%. 4. Loosen lever clamp screw. 5. Adjust stem nuts (see Figure 8) so that lever is at right angle (90) to stem (as close as possible). 6. Slowly rotate span pivot assembly (connector shaft) until output pressure is 34 to 90 kPa or 5 to 13 psi. Tighten lever clamp screw.

Calibration

7. Open shutoff valve (stem should not move appreciably) and proceed to Calibration Procedure .

Figure 6.
NOTE

If pivot assembly was not repositioned (air-to-lower) and this is first time installation, positioner is now set to the factory calibration (air-to-raise, 25 mm (1 in) stroke on a P50 Actuator). Pivot assembly should be approximately parallel to axis of lever.

Calibration Procedure
NOTE

Due to the interaction of zero and span screw adjustments at 0 and 100%, it is advisable to always re-zero at 50% input prior to checking results of span adjustments. 1. Apply 50% input to positioner. 2. Adjust coarse and/or fine zero screw so that stem reading is at mid-stroke position. See Figure 9.

Figure 9. 3. Apply 0 and 100% input to positioner and note stem positions. 4. If stem positions are not 0 and 100% respectively, adjust span screw per span table.
NOTE

One revolution of span screw influences the stroke by approximately 10%.

5. Apply 50% input. If stem is not at mid-stroke, turn zero screw to reposition stem to 50% of travel and check results of previous stroke adjustment. Repeat Steps 3, 4, and 5 if necessary until stroke is correct. Roller must remain in contact with nozzle assembly arm throughout entire stroke.

Alignment Check
1. Apply approximately 10% input. Close shutoff valve. 2. Change input by 5% in direction to increase output pressure. Output pressure should increase to within 15 kPa or 4 psi of supply pressure. If not, check that nozzle axis is at right angle (90) to flapper at 50% input. See Figure 10.

MI 018-440 January 1985

Maintenance

Use coarse and fine zero adjustments to achieve right angle (90).

Figure 10. 3. Apply approximately 90% input, close shutoff valve and repeat Step 2.

Positioner Modifications
NOTE

Foxboro does not consider the following modifications a field conversion. They are considered factory modifications due to the complexity of the procedures and the large amount of time required to perform them. If the modifications must be made in the field, use the following procedures and contact Foxboro for additional assistance.

Reversing Positioner Output


The existing action of the positioner is indicated by the marking on the exposed top of motor: INC-INC (increasing input produces an increasing output), or INC-DEC (increasing input produces a decreasing output). When reinstalling the motor (Step 7), the exposed marking on the motor must indicate the new positioner action. This procedure is not required when changing actuator action. To reverse actuator action, refer to Reversing Actuator Action procedure. 1. Remove positioner from valve. a. Disconnect input wiring and air piping. b. Loosen clamp screw at linkage. c. Remove two bolts holding positioner to valve yoke. 2. Remove the two feedback assembly mounting screws (Figure 12). Disconnect tubing from connection at case. Carefully lift out feedback assembly (do not damage nozzle). Spring on bottom of case will be exposed. 3. Unhook spring from motor bracket. 4. Remove two screws and lift off motor pivot plate (Figure 12).

MI 018-440 January 1985

Maintenance

Figure 12. 5. Lift out motor. Note wire routing. Carefully lift flapper (see Figure 13) straight up from flapper arm on motor. Do not deform flapper. Holding onto flapper arm on other end of motor while removing will prevent internal motor flexure deformation.

Figure 13. 6. Remove two screws holding bracket to bottom of motor. Invert motor and reinstall bracket (on side that was formerly on top). 7. Wind excess wire clockwise around motor and carefully place motor into position in case assuring that bottom tab is in cavity provided. Make sure that wires will not interfere with moving parts and pivot is in hole at bottom of motor.
NOTE

Marking on top of motor must indicate new positioner action.

Maintenance

MI 018-440 January 1985

8. Reinstall motor pivot plate. Tighten bolts uniformly. Reconnect spring on motor bracket. Reinstall flapper on flapper arm, maintaining gap as shown. Do not apply excessive force to arm. ! CAUTION Flapper contains damping material as shown in Figure 14. If damping material is removed, positioner will operate erratically.

GAP

Figure 14. 9. Turn fine zero screw fully counterclockwise. Turn span screw so that brass block is approximately centered on screw on span assembly. 10. Reinstall feedback assembly. Do not tighten mounting screws. Make sure that tubing is not kinked. 11. To position feedback assembly: Place thumb on span assembly and forefinger on surface A (Figure 15) near mounting screw. Gently squeeze fingers together to achieve 90 angle as shown. Check to make sure span assembly is perpendicular to base of positioner casting. Tighten feedback assembly mounting screws.

Figure 15. 12. Turn fine zero screw six turns clockwise. 13. Reinstall positioner on valve. 14. Perform Alignment, Calibration, and Alignment Check procedures.

Reversing Actuator Action


If actuator action (air-to-lower or air-to-raise) is to be changed, reverse top of actuator (see actuator Instruction MI 012-235) and then calibrate the positioner. Before calibrating positioner, make coarse span adjustment, as shown in Figure 16. (Turn span screw to reposition span pivot to correct side of connector shaft center line for desired actuator action.) Illustration shows span adjustment positioned for air-to-raise action.
