Mobile solution for configuration and parameterisation of field devices

20 October 2019

Endress+Hauser is now offering its Field Xpert together with Softing's mobiLink interface as a bundle for parameterising and commissioning field devices.

The combination of Softing's mobiLink interface with the Field Xpert SMT70 or SMT77 Tablet PC from Endress+Hauser is said to offer a simple and safe system solution for configuring and parameterising field devices for process automation protocols sucgh as HART, PROFIBUS PA and FOUNDATION Fieldbus. 

The bundle includes a Field Xpert SMT70 or SMT77 tablet with pre-installed CommDTMs, a mobiLink interface that establishes the connection to the tablet via Bluetooth, and optionally a license to use mobiLink for the configuration of FOUNDATION Fieldbus and PROFIBUS PA field devices. mobiLink is now available from Endress+Hauser under the name FieldPort SFP50.

Commenting on the move, Dr. Rolf Birkhofer, CEO of Endress+Hauser Digital Solutions, said: “mobiLink is seamlessly integrated into our Field Xpert, which can be used as a powerful Tablet PC for device configuration in Zone 2, Zone 1 or in non-explosive areas. It provides easy access to all field instruments and is a simple, touchable tool that allows field instruments to be managed throughout their lifecycle.”

Peter Juengling, key account manager at Softing Industrial, said: “We are proud to be able to look back on a long-standing partnership with Endress+Hauser. We already offer a range of interface products that connect to the Field Xpert SMT70 or SMT77 tablet for device configuration and to Endress+Hauser's FieldCare SFE500 Plant Asset Management Software. With mobiLink we simplify mobile access to field devices for plant operators, system integrators, device developers and other users in the process industry. Together with the Ex-certified tablets from Endress+Hauser, we now have a cost-effective and easy-to-use all-in-one solution.”
