Handheld device speeds maintenance, startup efforts
The AMS Trex Device Communicator (photo) uses the company’s Power the Loop technology. By removing the need for an external power supply, the device helps users work more effectivey and perform faster device configuration, on the bench or in the field. This allows users to perform device-configuration tasks before power and I/O infrastructure are in place, without the need for the installation of the host system, wiring, piping and other elements. Technicians can simply connect the communicator to a loose device to power it up, speeding configuration on the bench.— Emerson Automation Solutions, Austin, Tex.
