The FVX110 field indicators, available from Yokogawa Australia , have the capacity to display data on up to 16 process values from FOUNDATION fieldbus devices. The backlit LCD display is easy to read, and PID function blocks as well asｌink master and software download functions are included. This means that custom designed software is no longer required to communicate with other devices, as field indicators that comply with the FOUNDATION fieldbus specifications are fully interoperable.
The FVX110 field indicators can display up to 16 process variables from a variety of field instruments, effectively reducing instrumentation expenses. Additionally, compatibility with the FOUNDATION fieldbus digital communications protocol facilitates the display of signal data from third-party fieldbus compliant field devices.
Key features and benefits of the FVX110 field indicators include:
- Full dot-matrix LCD with LED backlight – visibly displays text and graphics such as bar graphs, a scroll bar, and icons that indicate the page turning direction
- Link master function – facilitates the backup of network management and also makes local control using field devices easy
- Function blocks – enables device diagnostics as two functions blocks each are included with the multiple analog output (MAO), arithmetic (AR), and input selector (IS), and a single function block is included for the signal characterizer (SC), integrator (IT), and PID
- Self diagnosis function – warns of failures in the ambient temperature limit, communications, and hardware such as the LCD and amplifier assembly
