Yokogawa has released the Fieldmate R2.03 device-management tool, which is intended for use in plants and other production-related sites.

In response to rapid growth in the Chinese market, Chinese language support has been included as a standard feature.

Support for the ISA100.11a field wireless-communications standard is also provided.

Plants using sensors from multiple vendors that rely on more than one communications standard require versatile software tools for device configuration, adjustment, and management.

Fieldmate, an open-standard software package that supports FDT/DTM, as well as all other major field-communications standards, is suited for such requirements.

Fieldmate now supports the Chinese language, in addition to Japanese and English, and Yokogawa has plans to add support for other languages at a later date.

The upgraded version of Fieldmate is now capable of supporting the ISA100.11a field wireless-communications standard.

Fieldmate’s support of all major field-communication protocols allows customers to manage a variety of devices and to select field sensors from different vendors.

Fieldmate is a PC-based device configuration tool with an intuitive interface that is used to perform initial setup, routine maintenance and device replacement.

It supports all major industry-standard communication protocols such as Foundation Fieldbus, Profibus, Brain and Hart, as well as the FDT/DTM open framework for setting and adjusting any vendor’s network-capable field device, regardless of which communications protocol is used.

In addition, support for the ISA100.11a field wireless-communications standard enables configuration, adjustment and management of a wider variety of field devices in plants.

Field Device Tool (FDT) is a communications interface that links control systems with field sensors such as pressure transmitters and flowmeters.

Device Type Manager (DTM) is an FDT-based device application that is provided by a vendor of a device or a control system.

Target markets include facility-maintenance divisions in process industries such as oil, petrochemicals, chemicals, pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, foods and beverages, and iron and steel.

Applications include sensor configuration, adjustment, and inspection and device information management in plants and other production facilities.
