Datasheet excerpt: Technical data of  PACTware 6.x

Product Description
FDT Framework
ConnectionAdapter with USB interface K-ADP-USB (for K-System)
Hardware requirementsPACTware requires 700 MB of hard disk space and at least 500 MB of central memory. Depending on the complexity of the project and the DTMS used, the central memory requirement may be several times higher.
Software requirementsInformation on the compatibility of PACTware with other software components can be found in the document 'Version history PACTware". The document can be downloaded from the Pepperl-Fuchs website.
LanguagesGerman, English, French, Spanish, Chinese can be selected
LicensingPACTware does not require licensing. Please take the license conditions of the DTMs out of the datasheets of the corresponding DTMs.
InstallationAdministrator rights are required For installation in Windows.
Representation of the system configurationGraphic representation of all communication and device type managers in the tree structure. In case of online operation colour code for identification of defective units and simulation operation. Multiple windows can be opened simultaneously. It is therefore possible to view the set device parameters, to monitor the measurement value and to display the device diagnostic simultaneously.
System planning, application processingGeneration of a configuration by means of a graphical application processing menu. Editing of available projects. Selection switch markings for each channel. Offline configuration, saving of project data to hard disk. Automatic comparison of the project plan to the actual available system when establishing connections on the device and parameter levels.
Associated productsAll available DTMs for Pepperl+Fuchs H-, K- and E-system devices, HART multiplexers, remote I/O systems, FieldConnex devices, WirelessHART devices and fill level products.

Details: PACTware 6.x


PACTware™ is a manufacturer- and fieldbus-independent software configuration tool with FDT (Field Device Tool) interface.

Based on FDT technology, this software allows DTMs (Device Type Managers) to be installed for commissioning, configuring, and parameter assignment independent of the process control system.

Communication DTMs are available for K-, E-, and H-Systems, HART Interface Solutions, level control, corrosion, Remote I/O, and fieldbus applications.
