Field instruments that comply with the FOUNDATION fieldbus specifications are fully interoperable; no longer is there a need for custom designed software to communicate with other devices.
Display of up to 16 process variables
Up to 16 process variables from multiple field instruments can be displayed, significantly reducing instrumentation costs. Furthermore, support of the FOUNDATION fieldbus digital communications protocol enables the display of signal data from third-party fieldbus compliant field devices.
Full dot-matrix LCD with LED back light
The back-lit full dot-matrix LCD clearly displays text and graphics such as bar graphs, a scroll bar, and icons that indicate the page turning direction and scroll knob turning direction.
Link master function
The FVX110 supports a link master function that enables backup of network management and allows local control using field devices.
To facilitate device diagnostics, two functions blocks each are provided for the multiple analog output (MAO), arithmetic (AR), and input selector (IS), and a single function block is provided for the following: signal characterizer (SC), integrator (IT), and PID.
With this function, it is possible to download updates or upgrades to the FVX110 software. Typical uses of this function are the addition of function blocks and diagnostics for existing devices.
A reliable self-diagnostic function based on the NAMUR NE107 standard detects failures in the ambient temperature limit, communications, and hardware such as the LCD and amplifier assembly.
