3730-3 - Electro-Pneumatic Positioner (HART)

Operation: Linear and Rotary (Independent of Fail-Safe Action or Moving Direction)

Travel/Rotation: Up to 300mm or 100o

Input: Single Multi-Turn Push Button

Display: Alphanumeric LCD with ability to rotate display 180o

Communications: HART and SAMSON TROVIS VIEW

Control: PD

Calibration & Tuning: Auto Calibration with Four Different Initialization Modes


The Type 3730-3 is a full feature HART enabled electro-pneumatic positioner designed to work in general industrial applications. This positioner can work inherently with single-acting linear and rotary control valves as well as double-acting linear and rotary control valves with the addition of a reversing amplifier.  The digital benefits of the Type 3730-3 provide self-calibration and automatic adaptions to the valve and actuator being controlled via 4 initialization methods.  This digital positioner has preset parameters such that only values deviating from the standard need to be adjusted. With 50+ parameters and 30+ error codes, the majority of critical settings and information can be communicated.  The HMI (human machine interface) of the single multi-turn push button and LC-display allow this communication of information to occur right at the unit. The potentiometer-based travel sensor of the Type 3730-3 is not susceptible to wear often found in gear-based travel sensors.  The travel range of the Type 3730-3 can be restricted up to 1/5 maximum stroke as well as operated in split range.
