Programming and Diagnostics
LD300 Series are available in three different technologies: HART®(LD301), Foundation™ Fieldbus (LD302) and PROFIBUS PA (LD303). These instruments can be configured with SMAR software and other manufacturer configuration tools.
Local adjustment is available in all LD300 Series. It is possible to configure zero and span, totalization, set point and other control functions using the magnetic screwdriver. SMAR has developed Asset View, which is a user-friendly Web Tool that can be accessed anywhere and anytime using an Internet browser. It is designed for management and diagnostics of field devices to ensure reactive, preventive, predictive and proactive maintenance.
LD302 utilizes the Foundation™ Fieldbus H1 protocol, an open technology that allows any H1 enabled configuration tool to configure this device.
SYSCON302 (System Configuration Tool) is a software tool used to configure, maintain and operate the field devices. SYSCON offers efficient and friendly interaction with the user, using Windows NT version 4.0 or later, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Configuration tools such as AMS, Fieldcare and HHT375 can configure LD302 - Foundation Fieldbus Pressure Transmitter devices. DD (Device Description) and CF (Capability File) files can be downloaded at either the SMAR or Fieldbus Foundation website.
LD302 supports complex strategies configurations due to the high capacity and variety of dynamic instantiable function blocks. Seventeen different types of function blocks are supported, and up to 20 function blocks can be running simultaneously.
Maintenance procedures with Asset View diagnostics and status information from Foundation™ Fieldbus result in a safer plant with longer availability.
