The Field Xpert SMT70 (photo) is a rugged tablet for commissioning and maintenance staff that manages field instruments and documents the work progress. The tablet comes pre-installed with the DeviceCare device configuration software and device library. The Field Xpert can connect to field instrumentation devices directly via a USB or Bluetooth wireless modem, or via a gateway, remote I/O or multiplexer to a bus system. The Field Xpert device library has more than 2,700 pre-installed device and communication drivers, allowing it to work with many different instruments from a wide variety of vendors. The drivers can be used to communicate with virtually all HART and Foundation Fieldbus devices, and additional device drivers can be installed if required. The battery runtime is 14 h. The tablet comes in a general-purpose configuration as well as a hazardous-area configuration. — Endress+Hauser Inc., Greenwood, Ind.
