Enhancing Valve Control with Smart Positioners: The K20 Advantage

At Westlock Controls, we are committed to providing state-of-the-art valve monitoring and control solutions that empower industries to achieve optimal performance. Introducing the K20 Smart Positioner, a game-changing innovation designed to elevate valve control.

The K20 Smart Positioner: Setting New Standards

The K20 Smart Positioner stands out as a pinnacle of advanced control valve technology. Engineered to address the most demanding industrial applications, the K20 combines cutting-edge features with unparalleled reliability and ease of use.


Unmatched Reliability

At the heart of the K20’s exceptional performance is its non-contact Hall Effect sensing technology. Unlike traditional mechanical systems that are prone to wear and tear, the K20 employs a non-contact method to ensure precise positioning without degradation over time. This innovative approach eliminates mechanical linkages, reducing maintenance requirements and enhancing long-term reliability.

The K20’s robust spool valve manifold is designed to endure up to an astonishing 2 billion cycles of operation. This frictionless valve design minimizes wear, ensuring that the K20 remains a dependable component in your critical processes. Whether you are operating in harsh environments or demanding applications, the K20 Smart Positioner guarantees consistent and reliable performance.


Intuitive Interface for Seamless Operation

User experience is a key focus of the K20 Smart Positioner. Its intuitive interface is designed for ease of use, enabling operators to navigate through settings and configurations effortlessly. The graphical LCD screen, coupled with capacitive buttons, allows for quick and straightforward adjustments. This user-friendly design ensures that even complex tasks can be performed with minimal training and effort. 

Additionally, the K20 comes equipped with a built-in quick start guide, providing step-by-step instructions for ultra-fast setup, saving you valuable time, and minimizing downtime during installation, giving your technicians the data they need at their fingertips to get up and running.


Efficiency with Auto-Calibration

Time is a valuable resource in any industrial setting, and the K20 Smart Positioner is designed to maximize efficiency. Its best-in-class auto-calibration feature completes the calibration process in just over a minute. With just a few button presses, operators can initiate precise autocalibration, eliminating the need for complicated manual adjustments. This not only saves time but also reduces the risk of human error, ensuring optimal performance from the outset.


Enhanced Connectivity with HART Protocol

 The K20 Smart Positioner supports HART 7 Protocol, providing enhanced communication capabilities and remote access. This integration allows for seamless connectivity with existing systems, ensuring that you can monitor and control your valves with ease. The HART Protocol enables advanced functionality and data gathering, giving you real-time insights into your valve operations, and facilitating proactive positioner communication.


Exceptional Versatility and Durability

Adaptability is key in control technology, and the K20 Smart Positioner delivers unmatched versatility. The K20 offers industry-leading flow capability, from a standard 16 SCFM to options reaching an impressive 40 SCFM. Not to mention, K20 offers the distinct advantage of a single part number that can seamlessly transition between Single and Double Acting capability, simplifying your supply chain.

Equipped with up to two limit switches, it offers enhanced valve travel feedback through a variety of integrated switch options, including mechanical SPDT, Magnum proximity, or inductive sensor technology, ensuring optimal operational efficiency.

The K20 also boasts rugged enclosure options, from Engineered Resin to low copper Aluminum and CF8M (316) Stainless Steel, providing exceptional corrosion resistance and durability in the harshest industrial environments.
