Smart Device Communicator Software for HART instrumentation

Nov. 1, 2011
ProComSol, Ltd today announced the release of Rev. 4.7 of their popular DevCom2000 Smart Device Communicator Software for HART instrumentation. This revision adds a trending feature which allows users to trend the parameters of HART devices.

According to Jeffrey Dobos, President of ProComSol, Ltd, "The new trending feature will enable users to trend process variables as well as any other parameter associated with the device. This feature will provide valuable information to users as they configure or troubleshoot the performance of transmitters and control valves."

Other improvements in Rev. 4.7 include the ability to easily add additional DD's (Device Descriptions) to the DevCom2000 software and improved multi-drop configuration capability. The DevCom2000 software comes pre-loaded with all of the DD's registered with the HART Communication Foundation. This enables users to deploy DevCom2000 right out of the box without the need to download DD's from various instrumentation suppliers. However, sometimes a DD is needed from a device that has not yet been registered with the HART Communication Foundation. This feature enables users to easily add the required DD.

The improved multi-drop capability is important for users employing some of the new WirelessHART adapters on the market. Many of these adapters support transmitters in a multi-drop configuration in order to make the installation more economical. The improved multi-drop capability makes it easy to configure the WirelessHART adapters and associated transmitters.
