Yokogawa has released the FieldMate R2.06 Versatile Device Management Wizard, a versatile software program for configuring, adjusting, and managing a wide variety of field devices in factories and other production sites. This upgraded version supports the latest FDT2.0 interface and features a new alarm setting function with a user-friendly graphic interface that conforms to NE107. The product features are as follows.
Backward compatible with FDT1.2, FDT2.0 improves device response time and performance. Common function components are available that make the development of FDT2.0-compatible software more efficient. An industry first, these FDT2.0-compliant DTM drivers are for two important Yokogawa product series, the EJA-E and EJX differential pressure and pressure transmitters. Yokogawa plans to develop FDT2.0 compliant DTMs for other products as well.
Sensors generate huge alarm data that must be categorized, organized, and promptly sent on to operators and maintenance staff so they can quickly respond to any abnormal condition occurring in a plant. Conventionally, various settings must be made for each type of alarm, which can be a very complex and difficult process. The new alarm setting function that comes with FieldMate R2.06 automatically organizes the alarm data in accordance with NE107 guidelines, simplifying the task of making these settings. A user-friendly graphical interface further facilitates this process.
