The experience of working with many fieldbus users has been built in to the F809F, with configurable fieldbus alerts to notify users of changes in fieldbus performance before they lead to interruptions in fieldbus communications. Detailed “Help screens” recommend corrective action to assist in troubleshooting a fieldbus network.
Relcom fieldbus test instruments assist with the maintenance and fault-finding of fieldbus installations. Compact in size and powered either by batteries or from the fieldbus itself, this set of testers will complement every maintenance engineers toolbox.
The Fieldbus Monitor, FBT-3, is used to examine the operation of a live FOUNDATION fieldbus™ network without interfering with its operation. The monitor is intended for maintenance personnel to verify network operation or to troubleshoot an errant network.
The Fieldbus Power & Signal Probe, FBT-4, is used to examine the operation of a live FOUNDATION fieldbus™ network without interfering with its operation.
The Fieldbus Wiring Validator, FBT-5, is used in combination with the Fieldbus Monitor, FBT-3, to test new or existing field wiring to determine its suitability for use in a FOUNDATION fieldbus™ network.
The FBT-6 Fieldbus Monitor is a hand held device that allows field personnel to perform a variety of physical layer tests to troubleshoot and commission fieldbus segments. The FBT-6 builds on the FBT-3 fieldbus tester that is established as the standard for fieldbus H1 test equipment.
The FBT-6-PA Profibus PA Diagnostic Monitor can be used to examine the operation of a live Profibus-PA segment without interfering with its operation.
