How much time do you spend identifying devices, especially when they are difficult to access or the nameplate is damaged?

Nowadays, this is wasted time. By reading Endress+Hauser’s RFID NFC tags with Field Xpert, you can get all the information you require, error-free, by simply pointing Field Xpert at the device in question. Serial number, P&ID tag, order code and device documentation are instantly at hand, and with the new RFID NFC tag editor, the data on the tag can be easily edited or a new RFID NFC tag can be created.

Field Xpert is a rugged, out-of-the-box solution to quick and easy commissioning and maintenance of HART and FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices of different manufacturers. Available with Ex-certification and IP65 protection, it is particularly suitable for the harsh environments encountered in the chemical and oil & gas industries.

Field Xpert comes with an extensive device driver library preinstalled – updates can be simply downloaded via Internet. NE 107 device diagnostics – i.e., categorized error messages with cause and remedy – ensure quick resolution of device faults. Other functions include comparison of configurations, envelope curves, linearization tables and favorite parameters.
