The introduction of intelligent pressure control valve positioners with internal capabilities for diagnostics, trending, alarm status, etc., is eliminating the need for external software in many cases. This approach is expected to be more fail-safe and secure for end users in the near future as setting changes must be made physically at the valve positioner. Moreover, maintaining valve history data in the positioner rather than in the distributed control system software ensures that valued information is not lost if the positioner is removed from service.
