August 26, 2015 - Endress+Hauser updates FieldCare device configuration tool for the process industry. FieldCare 2.10 has larger buttons, updated colors and the possibility to re-size windows so FieldCare can be used on small form factor devices like tablets. Additionally, Windows 8.1 and WinServer 2008 R2 are now supported and Russian has been added as a new language.
Using FieldCare, all Endress+Hauser and third party field devices can easily be configured and commissioned. FieldCare is available as a standard configuration offering and may be expanded with Condition Monitoring and Asset Information Management. With FDT 1.2.1 functionality, users can now scan below remote IOs.
Field devices with ModBus, EtherNet/IP and WirelessHART protocol are now supported using FDT 1.2.1. The scan is further enhanced with “One Touch Network” functionality, which allows for a complete network scan with just one click. Scanning speed for networks is up to five times faster using the PROFIBUS fieldgate SFG500 and its new SFG Speed Scan functionality.
FieldCare 2.10 supports HART 7 schemas and includes a Generic HART DTM which enables the configuration of devices without DTM. Enhanced iDTM for HART and FF provides configuration using interpreter DTMs.
