Which type of valve application are you working with?
In on/off valve applications, the primary function of the valve is to control the flow of media by either fully opening or closing. These valves are typically used to start or stop the flow of fluid in a system, providing a simple and effective means of controlling the process.
In control valve applications, positioners are used to precisely regulate the flow rate of fluids within a system with high precision and accuracy. Unlike on/off valves, control valves offer dynamic adjustment of the fluid flow and meeting control parameters to optimize process efficiency.
