Austin, TX— Emerson Process Management introduced May 19 its 375 Field Communicator, which is supports all devices using HART or FOUNDATION fieldbus digital communication protocols. The 375 allows users to configure and maintain instruments and valves with one intrinsically safe, ATEX-compliant handheld communicator in the field and/or on the bench.

Using the 375 Field Communicator's 'Easy Upgrade' feature, users can update the communicator on-site as new HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus devices become available. With more than 600 HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus devices from over 100 vendors currently available, and new HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus devices being introduced quarterly, a simple process for updates provides a significant benefit to users. No longer is it necessary to send a communicator anywhere to add new devices. Also, with the 375 Field Communicator, fieldbus users gain a needed portable intrinsically safe field tool to configure and maintain their fieldbus instruments and valves as the installed base of FOUNDATION fieldbus devices continues to grow.

375 supports Emerson's PlantWeb technology and combines over 17 years of experience providing HART users with the required tools to configure and maintain their instruments and valves in the field. Emerson's previous Model 275 HART Communicator is recognized worldwide as the standard portable tool for the configuration and maintenance of HART devices. 375's fieldbus segment diagnostics are the result of Emerson's extensive experience in thousands of fieldbus installations around the world. In addition to sales through Emerson's network, the 375 Field Communicator is available on an OEM basis.
