Emerson Automation Solutions has introduced the AMS Trex Device Communicator, a handheld communicator built to withstand harsh industrial environments. According to the company, the communicator makes device and loop diagnostics easy to understand and field activities easier to complete with its task-based graphical user interface.

With the communicator’s built-in Foundation Fieldbus and HART device diagnostic software, technicians can isolate and repair problems while devices continue to run. Simple issues can be addressed on the spot, avoiding unnecessary interruption to production. Segment and loop diagnostic tools allow users to validate loop  and fieldbus segment characteristics for easy troubleshooting.

Furthermore, protected against moisture and extreme temperatures, the communicator has a rugged design that can withstand the bumps and drops that come from normal use in the plant. It also has a large, full-colour touchscreen display that adjusts to lighting conditions and aids troubleshooting in areas where too much or too little light makes devices difficult to read.
