Emerson's 475 Field Communicator 3.2 allows users to run valve diagnostics in the field
Emerson announces the release of the 475 Field Communicator 3.2, which includes the ValveLink Mobile application. ValveLink Mobile allows users to access predictive diagnostics from Fisher Fieldvue digital valve controllers in the field and transfer the results to AMS Suite. The 475 Field Communicator provides universal support for all HART, WirelessHART and Foundation fieldbus devices, and is intrinsically safe so it can be used anywhere in the plant.
ValveLink Mobile provides an easy-to-use tool for startup, commissioning and diagnosing Fieldvue instruments in the field. As part of the 475 Field Communicator, it provides touch screen access to key maintenance and troubleshooting tools. Diagnostic data can be viewed and stored locally, as well as uploaded to AMS Suite for additional evaluation and diagnosis.
Following a task-based approach to the human interface, ValveLink Mobile simplifies access to data with minimal clicks of the touch screen and the use of flick, zoom-in and zoom-out features. Users can follow simple instructions to setup and calibrate valves, and run diagnostics such as Stroke Valve, Step Response and Valve Signature on the entire valve assembly.
