During operation, a pneumatic valve positioner recognizes the signal given by the controller and outputs air pressure; this allows for great precision in the alignment of the valve’s position, in conjunction with an actuator.

Such a pneumatic servo is used as a component in process control systems to improve operating characteristics of valves by reducing hysteresis. Pneumatic valve positioners communicate with air (i.e. 4-20mA input, and pneumatic-air output). Digital valve actuators use a microprocessor to monitor the valve accurately.
