Tool Validates Foundation Fieldbus and Profibus PA Segments
Wed, 04/07/2010 - 2:25pm
Pepperl+Fuchs introduced Segment Checker version 1.20 for validating the design of all Foundation fieldbus and Profibus PA segments, even in hazardous areas. Users drag and drop components into the project window, and edit the attributes to build a fieldbus segment. New to version 1.20 are the latest FieldConnex fieldbus products and enhanced calculations for fieldbarriers used in the High Power Trunk method. The tool allows users to export a project in a graphic format for use in different media. Segment Checker allows users to intuitively check operational parameters to validate fieldbus segment architecture. It also allows users to display, archive and print an entire design, and import field devices from a library, or create new devices with the “device editor” feature.
