Yokogawa Corporation of America has released the YHC5150X FieldMate handheld communicator. The YHC5150X is a HART communicator that allows all HART field devices to be configured, polled and trimmed utilizing a Windows-embedded CETM based system for faster processing and greater storage capacity.
The YHC5150X is a full function, DD Direct HART communicator supporting Universal, Common Practice and Device Specific commands for commissioning, configuration and maintenance operations.
The unit reads manufacturers’ DDs in their native format without the need for translations. In addition, the HART-compliant modem communicates with any registered or unregistered HART device. It also features an enhanced 4.3-inch diagonal anti-glare touchscreen with color graphic display (no stylus required) and full QWERTY keyboard for commissioning new transmitters.
The Yokogawa YHC5150X is complementary to Yokogawa’s existing portfolio of process instrumentation, such as the EJX/EJA pressure transmitters, Vortex/Magnetic/Coriolis flow meters and analytical products. In addition, the YHC5150X can be used with any registered or un-registered HART field device.
