Emerson Automation Solutions, with locations throughout North America, has introduced the AMS Trex Device Communicator, a handheld communicator, designed to withstand harsh industrial environments. Protected against moisture and extreme temperatures, the communicator is designed to withstand the bumps and drops that come from normal use in the plant. It also aims to adjust to lighting conditions and aid troubleshooting in areas where too much or too little light makes other devices difficult to read.
The communicator is certified to go anywhere a technician can go, with no need to shut a process down or get a hot work permit. Using the communicator’s built-in Foundation Fieldbus and Hart device diagnostic software, technicians can isolate and repair problems while the devices continue to run. With the ValveLink Mobile app, technicians can analyse valve diagnostics results on the communicator’s large screen.
