July 15, 2019 | By MRO Magazine
Endress+Hauser offers two universal, device configuration tablet PCs that provide one-click mobile device configuration and plant asset management in hazardous environments. The touch-enabled Field Xpert tablet PCs are models SMT77 and SMT70. Both can also be utilized in non-hazardous parts of the same facilities.
These tablets are slim, lightweight for such reinforced construction, and intuitive. They provide solutions to manage field instruments in a time- and cost-saving manner.
Connections are via the tablets’ built-in automated hardware detection capability. Both models have installed device configuration software in 20 languages; that includes NAMUR NE 107 instrument diagnosis. Extensive, pre-installed driver libraries stored in both tablets cover all important industrial protocols and offer access to IIoT as well as to device information and documentation.
The Field Xpert tablet automatically updates all DTMs and software regularly. Both models 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.
The 1.2 kg SMT70 has a 11.6” display and a battery runtime of up to 14 hours, while the 2.3 kg SMT70 has a 10.1” display and a battery runtime of up to five hours.
