Courtesy: Emerson Process ManagementEmerson Process Management's 475 Field Communication Silver Edition represents 25 years of industry expertise in handheld communicator technology. The Silver Edition uses version 3.8 software, which enables the Field Communicator to use both both HART and Foundation Fieldbus digital valve controllers with its ValveLink Mobile application. With ValveLink Mobile, users can set up and calibrate valves and run diagnostics such as Stroke Valve, Step Response, and Valve Signature on the entire valve assembly in the field.

The 475 Field Communicator enables configuration, calibration, and troubleshooting of more than 1500 HART and Foundation Fieldbus devices. It remains the only intrinsically safe handheld communicator to support both HART and Foundation Fieldbus devices from all suppliers – enabling technicians to use a single universal tool to simplify work and minimize equipment required.

Wonderful instrument so far I used

As much as possible I prefer to do diagnostics from the cubicle using intelligent device management (IDM) software part of the asset management system:

For instance to verify if the device is healthy or not before going to the field.

However, if indeed the device does have a problem then work in the field is required. In this instance a portable tool in the traditional handheld form factor I can hold in one hand like the 475 is preferred:
