Delivery Release: Valve Monitoring V1.2

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
With the Valve Monitoring Application, you can discover your individual potential savings and benefits for any number of valves.

Control valves are crucial assets for efficient process management and for ensuring product quality. This is why many valves are serviced, even though it is not yet necessary - or there is a risk of failure that could lead to plant downtime.


Valve Monitoring is a software application that

  • periodically receives diagnostic data from intelligent valve positioners in a plant (via Maintenance Station)

  • presents and analyzes these data over time to detect anomalies

  • calculates trends and predicts recommended maintenance dates, thereby enabling predictive maintenance

  • creates schedules for optimized maintenance of valves

1. Product Variants
Valve Monitoring is available in 2 variants:

  • On premise (Option 1)

  • Cloud (Option 2)


2. Requirements
The following requirements apply:

Data collection

  • PDM Maintenance Station V2.0 or higher
    OR PCS 7 V9.0.1 or higher
  • HART/Profibus connection

Data collection is possible with third-party process systems.


  • SIPART PS2 (HART V4 and V5 / Profibus PA V5 and V6)
  • Samson 3730 and 3731, REV1 and REV6

Further positioners can be integrated.

PC/Virtual Machine to run Valve Monitoring on premise

3. Offering
Valve Monitoring is offered using a pre-paid concept based on Power Packs. A Power Pack holds a quota of license points. The quota is consumed by ingesting data. Ingesting one or more files per valve and month will consume one license point.

This means, the quota can be spread across a certain timespan and a number of valves. Power Packs may be stacked but only one Power Pack can be active at the same time. 

For the Cloud Variant, a base pack is required granting access to the application in the Cloud.
