Handheld communicator speeds device configuration

23 January 2017

Emerson Automation Solutions has introduced its Power the Loop technology on its AMS Trex Device Communicator which is said to help users work more effectively and perform faster device configuration – on the bench or in the field – by removing the need for an external power supply.

The Trex communicator supports Emerson’s Project Certainty initiative, adding flexibility in project scheduling and helping project teams achieve faster start-up times. 

When using the Trex communicator in the field for new projects, Power the Loop technology can help take device configuration off the critical path. The communicator allows users to power devices directly from the handheld communicator, enabling users to perform device configuration tasks before power and I/O infrastructure are in place, and without the need for the installation of the host system, wiring, piping, and other elements. 

During everyday field maintenance, the solution eliminates the need to search for a compatible power supply or confirming adequate loop resistance before connecting to a device. Instead,  technicians can simply connect the communicator to a loose device to power it, speeding configuration on the bench.
