TWINSBURG, OH ‚â€“ Pepperl+Fuchs introduces the Advanced Diagnostic Module Commissioning Kit. This kit is a complete diagnostics package assembled in a rugged, portable case that enables users to commission, troubleshoot and validate a fieldbus segment, even without a control system. All kit components come pre-wired, and there is no need to wire anything internally in the fieldbox.
The standard kit includes a Pepperl+Fuchs Mobile Advanced Diagnostic Module, 120 V mA power supply, 25 V Fieldbus power supply, 120 VAC power cable, USB cable and a Fieldbus device cable with clip-on leads. All cables are for external connection only. The commissioning kit is available with a National Instruments PCMCIA H1Interface Card that allows users to verify segments prior to the host/control system installation. For users who already have a Mobile Advanced Diagnostic Module, a basic kit is also available with power supplies and cables only.
The Mobile ADM is a comprehensive physical layer measurement tool for FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 and PROFIBUS PA installations. It provides the exact segment and individual device data needed for analysis of the fieldbus physical layer, and intermittent segment malfunctions can be traced without the need for a permanent connection.
The Mobile ADM eliminates repetitive tasks and automatically generates network documentation for each segment and device, and enables maintenance personnel to pinpoint fault locations quickly and efficiently from the control room. Comprehensive measurements are transmitted in real-time to the maintenance station and can be easily viewed by an OPC Software Client.
