Fluke Introduces 154 HART Calibration Assistant
Fluke Corp. introduces the Fluke 154 HART Calibration Assistant, a standalone tablet-based communication tool for HART configuration. The 154 provides HART communication functionality that when combined with a Fluke 750 Series Documenting Process Calibrator or 720 Series Multifunction Process Calibrator enables the user to calibrate a full range of HART devices.
The Android-based tablet comes configured with the FlukeHART mobile app that utilizes a long-range wireless HART modem, which connects to the HART transmitter being tested or configured. This allows technicians to wirelessly communicate with the device up to 250 feet away.
The 154 provides full HART Device Description (DD) support of all HART devices and can monitor PV, SV, TV, QV and other measured HART variables. Quarterly DD updates can be downloaded from the Fluke website for three years from the first use of the product.
The calibration assistant includes a configurable connection cable that accepts either hook clips for connecting to wires or extended tooth alligator clips designed to connect to transmitter connection screw heads. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery is designed to last for several days of device testing and configuration under normal conditions. The 154 includes the Android-based tablet, charger and USB micro-cable, installed FlukeHART mobile application, HART modem, USB mini-cable, hook test clips, alligator clips, magnetic hanging strap and hard-side case.
