    Type Description

    The control head Type 8691 is designed for decentralized automation of ELEMENT Type 21xx pneumatic process valves. The registration of the valve end position is done through a contact-free analog position sensor, which automatically recognises and saves the valve end position through the Teach function when starting up. The integrated pilot valve controls single or double-acting actuators. As an option a fieldbus interface, AS-Interface or DeviceNet, can be chosen.The design of the control unit and the actuator enables an internal control air channel without external tubings. Besides the electrical position feedback signal the status of the device is shown directly on the control head itself through coloured powerful LEDs showing a clear visible valve position status, even under dirty or dark environments. The housing is easy to clean and features proven IP protection and chemically resistant materials for use in hygienic processing in food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Focused on wash down applications the IP rating is supported by a positive pressure inside the control head. Combined with Bürkert ELEMENT actuators the unique pilot valve system enables a compressed air recycling that avoids actuator chambers contamination from the environment.

    • Contact-free inductive valve position registration(Teach function)
    • Coloured illuminated status display
    • Integrated control air routing
    • Fieldbus AS-Interface or DeviceNet (option)
    • With ATEX II cat. 3G/D approval
