Simplifying the management of smart wireless networks
01 October 2008
Emerson Process Management has launched AMS Device Manager 9.5, providing a common interface for users to manage their wired and wireless instruments and valves. Wireless device configuration is streamlined and drag-anddrop functionality automates the writing of joinkeys into wireless devices, increasing efficiency and security.
The AMS Wireless Snap-On application allows users to plan, customise, visualise, and manage Emerson’s Smart Wireless networks. Users can easily upload an aerial image of their plant into the
application and quickly plan their wireless network. When the network layout is complete, they can validate the network against factory-recommended best practices to optimise device communication paths. Once the wireless network is installed, the AMS Wireless Snap-On application provides a comprehensive view of the network’s status, enabling users to maximise reliability of the wireless network. AMS Device Manager 9.5 includes the MV Engineering Assistant Snap-On application that has expanded to enable configuration and test calculation functions on both Hart and Foundation fieldbus MultiVariable transmitters. The release includes the new AlertTrack Snap-On application that gives users increased visibility to the health of field devices and documentation of parameter changes to help identify equipment issues and areas
for process improvement. With the AlertTrack SNAP-ON application, users can group multiple devices and set parameters to receive customised alerts.
