Softing mobiLink – Mobile parameterization of HART, Foundation Fieldbus and PROFIBUS PA devices

mobiLink simplifies mobile access to field devices for plant operators, system integrators, device developers and other users in the process industries. The interface is multi-protocol capable and combines HART master, Foundation fieldbus host and PROFIBUS PA master in one device.

mobiLink communicates via USB or Bluetooth with a smartphone, laptop or tablet and is suitable for parameterization, preconfiguration, commissioning, diagnostics and monitoring. The device is battery-powered, extremely robust and, in combination with ex-capable tablets, smartphones or Bluetooth, suitable for use in hazardous areas.

Highlights:

Multi protocol operation

  • HART Master, Foundation Fieldbus Host and PROFIBUS PA Master included in one device
  • Temporary attachment to Fieldbus segments or HART loops for individual interaction with field devices
  • Fully compliant protocol implementations allow for interference-free access to running plants

Host communication via Bluetooth or USB

  • Built-in batteries and Bluetooth communication enable the use of handheld host devices like smartphones and tablets
  • USB interface for bench host operation

Support of FDT Frame Applications and major Engineering Tools

  • PACTware FDT Frame Application and HART Communication DTM included
  • Communication DTM for Foundation Fieldbus and PROFIBUS PA (optional)
  • Foundation Fieldbus configuration tool (optional)
  • Application Program Interface for integration into Engineering Systems

Suitable for use in hazardous areas

  • EX approval for Zone 1
  • Suitable for connection to intrinsically safe circuits
  • Suited for harsh environment
