Monitor Valve Position with Sensing Platform

Feb. 16, 2021
ITT Engineered Valves offers a valve sensing platform for accurate, repeatable valve position feedback to monitor and control diaphragm valves.

The Integrated Sensing Platform (ISP) is a valve sensing platform that reliably monitors valve position. With advanced capabilities in calibrating, operating, and communicating with diaphragm valves, the ISP provides customers a reduced piping footprint, shortened setup time, and simplified operation.


With the ISP, customers are provided with advanced sensing devices for their EnviZion, Pure-Flo, and Dia-Flo valves from ITT Engineered Valves.


The ISP sensing module is closely integrated with the patent-pending valve actuator to provide a compact assembly, up to 70% shorter than current assemblies on the market. The non-contact sensing technology provides highly accurate and repeatable valve position feedback with no moving parts to wear. Calibration of the device is fast and simple, whether using the external magnetic dongle or with the newly created ISP app.


The ISP app will allow customers to remotely calibrate and operate their valves through a series of steps on an iPhone or iPad. The app offers users the ability to track valve performance over time and to log specific valve information and maintenance history. The information is easily accessed and reviewed via the app.


The ISP offers 2-Wire Discrete and DeviceNet Network protocols in addition to 3-Wire Discrete and ASi Network communication protocols.

  • Ultra-compact design: The space-saving interface between the ISP and valve actuator provides customers with significantly shorter overall height and reduces valuable footprint inside of tightly designed piping and skid systems.
  • Automatic calibration: Simple, reliable calibration via a dongle or the ISP app reduces start-up and commissioning time, getting users into operation faster.
  • Diagnostic option: Employing Bluetooth connectivity, the ISP app diagnostic feature allows the user to remotely collect valve performance data and record important maintenance information.
  • Internal solenoid option: The integrated internal solenoid eliminates bulky external accessories and allows for simple override of the ISP for operation and commissioning.
  • Magnetoresistance sensing: Utilizing advanced, non-contact sensing, the ISP delivers highly accurate and repeatable position indication, thus eliminating inaccurate feedback to the main control system.
  • Multiple output/bus options: A variety of discrete and network output options gives the system designer great flexibility in specifying the ISP for Biopharma and Industrial applications.
  • High-visibility position indication: The high-visibility LEDs allow the user to clearly see the valve position and calibration status. Further, the ISP app features a wink command that triggers the LED lights to blink, thus allowing an operator to quickly locate the desired valve.
  • Sealed, potted electronics: The unit is completely sealed with fully potted electronics meeting IP67 and NEMA 4X, eliminating the risk of water damage during system wash-downs and avoiding mishaps that arise when conventional switch packages are opened.
  • Observation window: The ISP is the only sensor in its class that allows direct visual confirmation of actuator spindle movement, allowing the user to validate valve operation without removing the device.
