Connecting field data with decision makers, maintenance and operations personnel gives faster access to field changes and an accurate audit trail for compliance and analysis requirements. The device communicator eliminates risk of inaccurate data by logging and timestamping all changes as they occur. With the resulting audit trail organizations know not only what was changed, but when and by what device, simplifying change-related troubleshooting and providing easily accessible data for compliance audits. Even if a technician is servicing a stranded device far from the asset database server or in a Wi-Fi dead zone, changes are cached locally on the communicator and uploaded as soon as the handheld automatically connects with the system, either wirelessly or via USB cable connection. The communicator, part of the company’s Always Mobile portfolio, harnesses Industrial IoT (IIoT) to deliver the data personnel need to improve maintenance efficiency and plant reliability, from wherever they work. With Auto Sync, shop supervisors don’t have to waste time tracking down individual units to verify device changes have been uploaded to the database. Instead, the communicators can stay with the technicians, improving their efficiency. In addition, new field devices are captured on the device communicator and will automatically populate in the asset database.
