Protocols supported by the Field Xpert 350
I am looking for a field communicator. What are the protocols supported by the FieldXpert 350?.
The FieldXpert is a handheld used to setup HART and Foundation Fieldbus devices. You will need to have an external power supply if you want to communicate with the device and your workstation. Depending on your requirements the FieldXpert can be a viable option for you.
Further, by using Bluetooth Hart interface you can communicate between the field communicator and the field device. The velocity of communication is a little bit slower than other field communicators, but in my opinion, this is not a huge problem.
The FieldXpert runs on a Windows platform. However, the operating system is a bit different than other handhelds on the market. You have the freedom to install new apps, read the manual, view maps, take pictures and so on.
One feature I would like to highlight is the favorite folder. You can save your most important functions in that folder. This way you don’t need to lose time navigating through the menu. Everything you need will be available there!
In conclusion, FieldXpert 350 is a robust device, with good features. The freedom to install new apps allows you to do more than only setup devices. If these are the features you are looking for, the FieldXpert 350 can be a good option for you.
