New to version 1.20 are the latest FieldConnex fieldbus products and enhanced calculations for field barriers used in the High Power Trunk method. The software automatically calculates the voltage drop and load current on a fieldbus segment for any given configuration. Users choose the explosion protection method such as FISCO, Entity, FNICO and High Power Trunk, or the safe area, and segment design error checking makes clear whether the desired configuration is workable. The software checks operational parameters to validate fieldbus segment architecture. It can also display, archive and print an entire design, import field devices from a library, or create new devices with the “device editor” feature. The software is compatible with Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7.
