Field Xpert manages assets
PC tablets cover all important protocols.
Endress+Hauser’s two universal, device configuration tablet PCs handle plant asset management in hazardous or non-hazardous environments.
The touch-enabled Field Xpert tablet PCs – model SMT77 (11.6-in. display) and SMT70 (10.1-in.) – allow maintenance staff to manage virtually all digitally communicating field instruments throughout their entire life cycle.
Extensive, pre-installed driver libraries stored in both tablets cover all important industrial protocols and access the Industrial Internet of Things, plus device information and documentation. The Field Xpert tablet automatically updates all DTMs and software regularly to ensure maintenance teams have ultimate connectivity when it counts.
Both models also support multiple communication technologies including HART, Profibus DP/PA, Foundation Fieldbus, Modbus and EtherNET/IP.
Device connectivity may be achieved point-to-point, over digital networks, or via marshalling cabinets, remote I/Os and gateways.
Endress+Hauser, with offices in Burlington, Ont., serves the industrial process engineering market.
