ISA Announces Siemens' Donation to Training Program
Research Triangle Park, NC (17 July 2006) - ISA has announced the donation of 4 Nullmatic controls Model 55M (M43) with integral setting and transfer switch from Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc., to its training program. Valued at over $11,600, the donation will be used in ISA's technical training program.
ISA is pleased to receive the four units, each worth approximately $2,900. The Nullmatic controllers are applicable to any process with a transmitter (or transducer) that provides a pneumatic measured variable signal. The controller can be changed from direct action (increase input, increase output) to reverse control action by turning an external plate. Moreover, standard and fast-reset needle valves are interchangeable in these models without disassembling the controller.
With Siemens' valuable donation, ISA course attendees will be able to align and calibrate a pneumatic controller and a pneumatic positioner, and perform pipe bending for pneumatic device installation on the physical equipment. "ISA appreciates Siemens support of its training programs. Providing hands-on laboratory experience is a key component of many ISA courses and donations such as this enhance the effectiveness of the laboratory component," said ISA Director of Education Services, Dale Lee.
