TH LINK PROFIBUS enables remote access to all HART devices connected to the bus via all major asset management software solutions supporting FDT, such as FieldMate (Yokogawa), Field Care (Endress + Hauser), SmartVision (ABB), Field Device Manager (Honeywell) or PACTware.
Even though it requires little space, the gateway can be used for a variety of maintenance tasks. During operation, field device parameters can be configured centrally from the control room, saving costs by avoiding lengthy walks in the plant. In combination with any FDT (Field Device Tool) Frame Application, the entire system or individual devices can be tested easily by loop check during commissioning.
Thanks to integrated PROFIBUS diagnostics, maintenance engineers get data on the health of the bus at any time, helping to prevent plant downtimes caused by communication failures.
