FY301 Valve Positioner

The FY301 valve positioner is microprocessor based, which provides fast and accurate positioning of diaphragm or cylinder actuators. It produces a pressure output, as required to control valve, according to 4-20mA input supplied by a controller. The FY301 enables an easy interface between the field and the control room resulting in reduced installation, operation and maintenance costs.


  • Compact and modular design- Low air consumption - Easy installation
  • Direct, non-contact position sensing - Intrinsically safe
  • Operate with rotary and linear motion, single or double acting pneumatic actuators
  • Easy adjustment and parameter settings or local adjustment and display
  • Flow characteristics change with software cams
  • Other features available

This training course is a combination of practical information and hands-on exercises covering the basic concepts of valve positioning.


The attendee will be able to:

  • Use the Magnetic Screwdriver (SD1), Palm hand held and CONF401 configuration tools.
  • Configure all functions available on the programming tree.
  • Understand how linear and rotary actuators work.
  • Understand how to measure valve position without mechanical contact.
  • Troubleshoot the positioner using Palm hand held and CONF401.


  • Basic Concepts of Valve Positioning.
  • Functional Description of FY301 and TP301 devices.
  • Operation and Programming of FY301 and TP301.
  • Installation of FY301 and TP301 transmitters.
  • How to Quote and Specify FY301 and TP301 transmitters.
  • Hands-on using Magnetic Screwdriver (SD1), Palm hand held and CONF401.
  • Troubleshooting using Palm hand held and CONF401.

Basic Knowledge of Valve Operation is beneficial but not mandatory.
