ProComSol, Ltdannounced the release of the first Android based Smart Device Communicator Application for HART instruments.The App uses the Device Descriptor (DD) for the connected HART device so the user has full access to every Parameter and Method. According to Jeffrey Dobos, President of ProComSol, Ltd, “Everyone is familiar with the convenience and power of smart phones in their daily life. This same power and convenience can now be applied to HART device functions in the plant. With just a few swipes of your finger, on hardware that fits in your pocket, full HART device configuration is now available. The mobile revolution has finally reached the plant floor – with more capabilities and significantly less cost than ever before.”
The Android App (DevComDroid), in combination with a Bluetooth HART modem, is a full functioned HART Communicator. The entire DD Library from the HART Communication Foundation is included. New DD’s can be added very simply by the user. A HART communicator that uses DD’s allows for the full configuration of Valves, Multi-Variable devices, and complex devices such as Radar Level and Coriolis Flow meters.
The Bluetooth wireless interface between HART modem and Android device provides user safety and comfort. There are no wires to tangle or trip over.
DevComDroid allows the user to view and edit device parameters and even save all the device parameters as a PDF file. The PDF file can then be shared with anyone in the world via the mobile network connections in an Android device. Saving and sharing HART device configurations is now faster and more convenient.
