The reliable valve limit switch alternative for manual multi-turn valves

The dedicated valve position indicator for manual gate and globe valves.

Getting a reliable signal from your manual linear valves

In many industries, knowing the open or closed position of manual valves is important for reasons of safety or process efficiency. Quarter-turn valves are commonly equipped with a valve limit switch for that reason. For multi-turn valves however, a valve limit switch does not work. Companies often rely on do-it-yourself solutions to get an open and closed signal. In general, they experience serious issues with this kind of solution. The VPI position indicator tackles these issues. This dedicated solution is intended solely for manual linear valves and offers a reliable open and closed signal for any manual gate or globe valve.

Easy mounting

Just like any bracket-type solution with a valve limit switch, the VPI position indicator is mounted on top of your hand wheel-operated valves, like gate or globe valves and valves with a gearbox. The body is fixed to the valve with a universal bracket, which can be mounted on any type of multi-turn valve within a very short installation time.

Certified for use in explosive atmospheres

The VPI position indicator is ATEX- and IECEx-certified as intrinsically safe (Ex i). It is also available in a flameproof version, and with a wide range of sensors and valve limit switches.
