The award-winning Field Xpert SMT70 tablet from Endress+Hauser Group enables asset management in hazardous areas and allows technical experts to access instrument configuration remotely.
It said: “Standard laptops are often used in industrial plants for commissioning and maintaining instruments, but there’s one big problem – they can’t be used in potentially explosive environments. The Field Xpert SMT70 is a powerful tablet computer that allows you to create a mobile workstation in the field, even in hazardous areas.”
It used to be common to use PDAs (handheld PCs) to communicate with field instruments, but the technology has become obsolete. Updating them became increasingly difficult and memory storage was limited.
The Field Xpert SMT70 tablet has powerful, fast processors and an easy-to-read touch screen. It connects to all digitally communicating devices for simplified commissioning and maintenance, and its portability and ruggedness make it suitable for every environment, including Ex Zone 2 areas.
The SMT70 comes pre-installed with device configuration software and over 3,000 device drivers, so you can use it straight out of the box. The tablet works with virtually every modern field instrument, including other manufacturers’ instrumentation and systems, and can also connect to Endress+Hauser devices via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
It’s also compatible with Endress+Hauser’s Heartbeat Technology, which means it can carry out inline verification and produce the required PDF documentation.
