Expert’s Answer: Technical Manual Smar LD300 Series
Hey! Don’t worry. I know that sometimes it can be a pain to find technical manuals. Especially on-site, in a mobile, and with these not-so-user-friendly websites from some manufacturers. I have to say that the Smar website is not too bad when it comes to finding what you need in. Thumbs up Smar!
Check Your Protocol
One thing you have to check out is which protocol is on your device. The Smar LD300 series comes in HART (LD301), FF (LD302) or Profibus PA (LD303). If you are not sure, you can go to the LD300 web page here and in the ‘Downloads’ section go to the ‘Manual’ menu. There you can find all the manuals available in different languages.
However, there are a lot of options in there. You will find manuals for Foundation Fieldbus Libraries, Profibus PA Function blocks, DTMs and so on. In fact, there are something like 30 different manuals on the page. I don’t really know why but there are even some manuals for other devices such as the LD400 and the LD290. For real, no clue why!
It can be easy for you to get a little lost with all these options. Especially if you are not sure what you are looking for! That being said, you can count on us here at Visaya to look out for you!
