Portable multi-function instrument calibrator/communicator
23 September 2014
GE Measurement & Control has introduced the new DPI 620 Genii to the GE Druck family. The unit combines multifunctional test and calibration capabilities with digital HART and Foundation Fieldbus communication in a single hand-held device.
The DPI 620 Genii is believed to be the first such portable device to feature intuitive swipe screen technology. It integrates with calibration and maintenance software, so that calibration and configuration data is available from the field devices through to ERP to provide maintenance regimes and instrument engineers with accurate, fast and reliable information to improve workflows and increase productivity.
The DPI 620 Genii is designed for use in the process, chemical, petro-chemical, oil and gas, pharmaceutical and power generation sectors.
The multi-function and pressure calibration functionality is based upon the Druck DPI620. It is an advanced, hand-held indicator/calibrator, which can measure and simulate the electrical parameters, temperatures and frequencies associated with the majority of process instrumentation but is said to between eight and 16 times more accurate than a typical multimeter.
The tools’ duties can be expanded through the addition of a flexible pressure system. This comprises a range of 32 high accuracy pressure measurement modules with ranges from 25 mbar up to 1000 bar; three pressure generating stations so that pressure can be generated pneumatically from 95% vacuum up to 20 bar to 100 bar, and hydraulically up to 1000 bar.
The HART and Fieldbus communication capabilities of the unit work seamlessly with the calibration functions, allowing configuration, commissioning and calibration of digital devices. With built-in libraries of all 1300 registered HART and 600 Foundation Fieldbus device descriptions (DD), and with virtually unlimited memory for future updates, Genii can view, change, clone and store device configurations, even off-line. Analogue variables can be measured and sourced without the need for secondary calibration equipment and, to complete its self-sufficiency, Genii provides its own 24V loop supply and contains an integral 250 ohm HART resistor.
