•Universal support for HART® and FOUNDATIONTM fieldbus devices
The 475 Field Communicator builds on the industry-leading technology of the 375 Field Communicator while adding innovative new capabilities including color display, Bluetooth communication, and advanced field diagnostics.What you get is the most powerful handheld available – universal, user upgradeable, intrinsically safe, rugged and reliable. Only the 475 Field Communicator can deliver all this in a single handheld communicator.
The 475 Field Communicator is designed to simplify your work in the field. The intuitive full color user interface allows you to leverage the same practices for both HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus devices. It includes a larger touch screen than PDAs or Pocket PCs, supports HART versions 5, 6, and 7 (including Wireless HART™) devices, and allows you to upgrade your 475 Field Communicator onsite using the Internet.
See the Difference
The touch screen display uses transflective technology, making it easy to read in both bright sunlight and normal lighting. To make sure all conditions are covered, a multi-level backlight is included, allowing bright, crisp display even in plant areas with dim light. The touch screen display and large physical navigation buttons provide for efficient use both on the bench and in the field.
The full color graphics capability is provided as standard with every 475 Field Communicator. It uses powerful EDDL technology to allow you to read data from field devices in a graphical manner. Charts, graphs, gauges, and product images are just a few of the ways in which important device data can be displayed using the 475 Field Communicator’s color LCD display.
The weight of the 475 Field Communicator is evenly distributed for comfortable one-handed operation in the field. It runs on Windows CE, a robust, real-time operating system. The 475 Field Communicator has plenty of memory to allow for future expansion. It has 32 MB of application memory and 1 GB of memory on its System Card.
Easy Upgrade Keeps Your Communicator Current
The 475 Field Communicator is user upgradeable via the Internet. Avoid the time delays of sending your communicator to a service center for upgrades. With the Easy Upgrade option, you can download new device drivers, functionality, or licenses directly to your 475 Field Communicator. Keeping your 475 Field
Communicator updated is easy.New HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus devices, as well as functional updates to existing devices, are introduced continually by device vendors. Keeping up-to-date with the required Device Descriptions (DDs) for all the devices in your plant can be a real challenge.
The 475 Field Communicator meets the Intrinsic Safety requirements of the listed regulatory agencies and standards. All of the available Hazardous Locations approvals are provided in a single model option (see Ordering Information). CENELEC/ATEX Factory Mutual (FM) Canadian Standards Association (CSA) FISCO IECEx
Rugged and Reliable
It’s called “Field Communicator” or a reason. Some tasks just have to be performed at the device in the field. The 475 Field Communicator is designed for tough use in your plant or mill. Its large keys and physical navigation buttons allow for one-handed operation, even with your work gloves on. The rugged display is designed to take the knocks and shocks from normal use in the plant. The 475 Field Communicator’s Protective Rubber Boot provides added protection in the field and in your toolbox. Both the rubber boot and 475 housing are designed in accordance with Intrinsic Safety standards to limit the build up of static electrical energy. The 475 Field Communicator is designed, manufactured, and tested to very demanding specifications. It is ready to go wherever you need to go to get the job done.
