3. Advice: Get support from an embedded expert system!

The new fieldbus diagnostic handheld FDH-1 includes an expert system which converts raw measured data into easily understandable messages. It describes potential causes of the problems such as wiring errors, ground faults or complex scenarios, and identifies simple instructions for correction that any user can follow.

4. Convenience: Check segments anywhere!

With the portable fieldbus diagnostic handheld FDH-1 no PC connection is required. The handheld device is certified for operation in any hazardous area as well as all types of explosion protection relevant for fieldbus. The battery operates an entire day without recharging.
