Emerson Process Management's 475 Field Communicator features an icon-based user interface
Emerson Process Management's 475 Field Communicator features an icon-based user interface that is designed to simplify the work of field maintenance technicians. The icon-based interface is engineered to function like popular consumer products with a touch screen for one-finger selection of various tasks.
Device Dashboards are now incorporated in the 475 Field Communicator. These interfaces are designed to provide an instant view of all essential information needed to evaluate, diagnose and configure a field device.
The ValveLink Mobile application uses the icon-based interface in an effort to simplify access to HART control valve data and is navigated with the flick, zoom in and zoom out capabilities. Diagnostic data can be viewed and stored in the 475 Field Communicator or uploaded to AMS Suite for additional evaluation.
The icon-based interface is pre-installed in 475 Field Communicators purchased since January 2011 and can be downloaded without charge by current users of 475 and 375 Field Communicators who hold Easy Upgrade licenses.
