Emerson’s milestone: 25 years of handheld field communicator technology

Emerson Process Management has just released the Silver Edition of its 475 Field Communicator.

The new Silver Edition marks 25 years of its expertise in handheld communicator technology.

Through the years, the 475 Field Communicator has enabled unique applications for performing device diagnostics and troubleshooting in the field, including the combination of HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus protocols on a single platform, a user interface based on human-centred design principles, and advanced valve diagnostics.

With the release of the version 3.8 software, the 475 Field Communicator now supports both HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus digital valve controllers with its ValveLink Mobile application.

With ValveLink Mobile, users can set up and calibrate valves and run diagnostics such as Stroke Valve, Step Response, and Valve Signature on the entire valve assembly – in the field.

The 475 Field Communicator enables configuration, calibration, and troubleshooting of more than 1500 HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus devices.

This intrinsically safe handheld communicator supports both HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus devices from all suppliers – enabling technicians to use a single universal tool to minimise equipment required for a trip to the field.
