Proactive Maintenance Strategies With Bottom-Line Benefits

To Maximize Your Investment in Smart Measurement Devices, It's Ideal to Manage Your Operations and Lower Operating Costs. Intelligent Information in Those Devices Should Be Available to Operators and Managers; Otherwise, Management Has Limited Ability to Positively Impact Bottom Line

By FDT Group

Most installed measurement instrumentation provided by the 4-20mA signal is "smart," according to industry estimates. But in order to maximize your investment in smart measurement devices, better manage your operations and lower your operating costs, intelligent information in those devices should be available to operators and managers. Because without a better view of the diagnostic condition and status of your devices, management has limited ability to take action that can have significant, positive impact on your bottom line.

What is a FDT Frame Application?

The Frame Application is a software application that enables a graphical interface or 'view' used to configure, maintain and diagnose intelligent measurement devices from different leading suppliers. A Frame functions as a "window" or "view" that displays device parameters and information by way of an installed DTM provided by the device supplier. This combination provides a simple, clear and easy-to-understand device management environment that can change your view of the device by indicating diagnostic warnings of potential problems which may help you reduce maintenance and operation costs.
