Magnetrol offers free PACTware and FDT/DTM capability

Magnetrol is now offering full and free DTM capability to all its customers. Most Magnetrol transmitters have been equipped for some time to work with DTMs, enabling customers to troubleshoot and configure units from distance using PACTware or other FDT Frame programs. These advantages can also be exploited via the internet and e-mail, so top specialists from all over the world can help to solve field problems without dismantling field instruments. The system's effectiveness in getting users up and running quickly and efficiently has persuaded Magnetrol to promote the use of its DTMs and offer this capability for free.

PACTware is a FDT Frame program that communicates bi-directionally with almost any type of communication protocol (eg Hart). It offers a universal and user-friendly alternative to proprietary instrument software and field handheld devices. PACTware is an open platform that links field devices and components from different suppliers.

Eclipse 705, Jupiter 200, EZ Modulevel and Pulsar transmitters' use of DTMs gives users remote access from their PC or laptop to all configuration parameters, diagnostic messages and warnings, echo curves and trending. The echo curves are useful for visualising important measuring information that enables users to validate the signal and trace problem areas. Echo curves, Parameter lists and Trend files can easily be printed, saved and sent over the internet to optimise factory support.
