Softing’s mobiLink simplifies mobile access to field devices for plant operators, system integrators, device developers and other users in the process industries. In combination with the relevant software (e.g., Softing’s Communication Configurator), it is suitable for configuration, commissioning, diagnostics and monitoring. mobiLink supports FDT Frame Applications and major engineering tools. It allows access to FOUNDATION Fieldbus and HART devices such as transmitters or valves. Access to PROFIBUS PA devices will be possible on July 1, 2018. mobiLink is battery-operated, extremely robust and suitable for use in explosive areas. It communicates with handheld host devices like smart phones and tablets via Bluetooth and has a USB interface for bench host operation.

Visit Softing at the ACHEMA Trade Fair, June 11-15, 2018, at the Fieldcomm Group Pavilion, Hall 11.0, Stand E44.
