This valve sensing-and-control unit has been re-engineered

The second-generation ThinkTop V50 and V70 control units have been re-engineered to offer fast and intuitive setup and commissioning; a repositioned Gore vent; a more compact and aesthetic design; burst-seat clean functionality; and a QR code for easy online access to supplementary materials and direct support. The new automated setup feature offers manufacturers quick, easy commissioning — up to 90% faster than the previous generation, says the manufacturer. The new ThinkTop fits on any of this company’s valves, making it suitable for all retrofits. It features self-diagnostics, checking and remedying operations when required, and an enhanced 360-deg LED visual-status indication so that operators can clearly see the valve status from any location on the production floor. Furthermore, the new ThinkTop V50 and V70 meet the protection classes IP66, IP67 and IP69K. — Alfa Laval Kolding A/S, Kolding, Denmark
