what is the basic working principle of I/P and Positioner in 
any control valve.
 Question Submitted By :: Instrumentation
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
# 1
I/P is basiclly working on the flapper and nozzle
principle.And the positioner is working on the Forced
balance principle.
Is This Answer Correct ?    99 Yes 7 No
# 2
I/P Converter , converts 4-20 mA signal from controller
to .2 to 1.0 Kg/cm2 pneumatic signal.

Positioner consist of air supply port , signal input port,
out put port.When positioner get in put signal ,it compare
with stem position and output is generated and signal
boosted sufficiently to operate the valve . It uses force
balance system.
Is This Answer Correct ?    46 Yes 10 No

# 3
It works on force balance principle. A coil is suspended
in a magnetic field on a flexible mount. At the lower end
of the coil is a flapper valve that operates against a
precision ground nozzle to create a backpressure on the
servo diaphragm of a booster relay. The input current flows
in the coil and produces a force between the coil and the
flapper valve, which controls the servo pressure and the
output pressure.Zero adjustment of the unit is made by
turning a screw that regulates the distance between the
flapper valve and the air nozzle. Span adjustmentis made by
varying a potentiometer,which shunts input current past the

mA ---> Kg/Cm2 ---> % Valve Open

4 ---> 0.2 ---> 0%
8 0.4 25%
12 0.6 50%
16 0.8 75%
20 1.0 100%
Is This Answer Correct ?    10 Yes 3 No

# 5
I/P is input (requirement of process/operator) at which
valve needs to be operated.Positioner gives output
(feedback) to control loop about actual position of valve.
Conclusively-I/P-requirement, Positioner-job done
Is This Answer Correct ?    21 Yes 15 No

# 6
it's work to forced balanced
Is This Answer Correct ?    6 Yes 2 No
Chetan Jodatti
# 7
I/p converter is a heart of
control valve. Positioner is
like a blood circulation.
Is This Answer Correct ?    2 Yes 3 No
# 8
i/p means current to penumatic converter its gives 4-20ma
and hi regulate the penumatic pressur
Is This Answer Correct ?    2 Yes 8 No

# 9
I/P works on Motion Balance and Positioner works on Force
Balance priciples
Is This Answer Correct ?    5 Yes 16 No

In RTU Panel we are having several Analogue & Digital Inputs /Outputs. We are recently facing some problems over Analog inputs , which are not updating properly (But Digital Input are updating normally) Can any one tell me from where the problem is creating , we have checked PLC CPU card, Analog Input card & we reconfigured ,But still the issue is there. Issue : 1. Sometimes Analog values are updating & sometimes not. 2. Analog values are not updating normally , showing some wrong Values 3. Total dead (0 value) Analog values are Level & flow measurement from the field instruments. (But in field the instruments are working normally & Displaying the values normally in local display unit) This problem we are facing in our Water Plant. If any one experienced this same problem or having any ideas related to our issue PLS send your valuable Answers/Replies... L&T 6
A pressure differential gauge type of instrument has a manifold with 2 isolation valves (hp and lp),2 vents(1 each for hp and lp) and 1 equalizing valve. Determine the position of each valve(either fully closed or fully open) when troboulshooting to: 1. zero the transmitter. 2. determine if there is a block in the impulse line. 3. determine if the gauge is functioning properly. The process fluid is water.   1
