Moore Industries has joined PACTware, a consortium dedicated to developing and maintaining manufacturer and fieldbus-independent software for operating field instruments.

Moore Industries has subsequently integrated the PACTware software into a range of monitoring and configuration options available with the new THZ3 and TDZ3 dual input Smart HART temperature transmitters.

Being both HART and DTM (Device Type Manager) programmable, Moore Industries’ THZ3 and TDZ3 transmitters can be easily programmed and interrogated from anywhere at any time on a 4-20mA loop. This can be done with a standard HART handheld communicator, a HART-compatible host or with any FDT (Field Device Tool)-compliant host or program such as PACTware utilising Moore Industries’ DTM.

Downloadable directly from Moore Industries website, PACTware software can be used with any manufacturer’s DTM, providing comprehensive advanced programming capability thorough transmitter configuration.

As the first Moore Industries products to use an FDT-compliant host with a DTM, the THZ3 and TDZ3 transmitters have helped lay the foundation for utilising PACTware with all future smart transmitters. Using an FDT host such as PACTware with a DTM is quickly becoming a worldwide standard as customers seek a universal method for programming, monitoring and diagnosing their field instruments.

FDT/DTM technologies eliminate problems caused by vendors having different software programming packages or programming for multiple protocols (such as HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and PROFIBUS PA).

PACTware is a consortium of 24 process control vendors that jointly maintain and distribute the PACTware FDT Frame Application to their end users. Partnering with PACTware allows Moore Industries to be on the cutting edge of developments in the monitoring and configuration of field instruments and applications.
