NEWS RELEASE

ValveLink™ Mobile 4.0 provides greater plantwide access to control valve status for improved reliability, increased uptime 
MARSHALLTOWN, IOWA (July 2, 2013) – Emerson Process Management’s ValveLink Mobile software version 4.0 introduces mobile management of control valves on a Foundation fieldbus network. Available on 475 Field Communicators, ValveLink Mobile 4.0 offers an intuitive interface featuring large touch screen icons which allow operators to configure, calibrate,  validate, diagnose and troubleshoot valves in the field.
