Moore Industries has officially become a member of PACTware, a consortium dedicated to developing and maintaining manufacturer and fieldbus-independent software for operating field instruments. The company has integrated PACTware into the range of monitoring and configuration options available with the recently released THZ3 and TDZ3 Dual Input Smart HART Temperature Transmitters.
The THZ3 and TDZ3 transmitters are both HART and DTM (Device Type Manager) programmable. They can be easily programmed and interrogated from anywhere at any time on a 4-20mA loop. This can be done with a standard HART handheld communicator, a HART-compatible host or with any FDT (Field Device Tool)-compliant host or program such as PACTware utilizing Moore Industries’ DTM.
Users can download the software directly from Moore Industries website and can be used with any manufacturer’s DTM. This utility provides comprehensive advanced programming capability for thorough transmitter configuration. The THZ3 and TDZ3 are the first Moore Industries products to use an FDT-complaint host with a DTM, which lays the foundation for utilizing PACTware with all future smart transmitters.
