SHREWSBURY, MA — Neles Automation has developed a handheld device, the FieldBrowser, which can do such things as monitor a field device on a HART network, capture data for computer-automated diagnostics and send alarms via E-mail, Internet, Intranet and mobile phone. The device, which was developed as an extension of the company’s FieldBrowser technology, is best used to monitor control valves equipped with ND800 digital positioners. Yet, the technology can also be used on mixed networks, including any manufacturer’s digital valves, pressure, temperature and flow transmitters, and other smart-field devices. Among its chief features is that it can continuously monitor all field devices, send alarms when user-selected limits are exceeded, and generate a Web page with colored lights to show the condition of every field device on the network.
