Fluke Corp. (Everett, WA) introduces the Fluke 154 HART Calibration Assistant, a standalone tablet-based communication tool that makes HART configuration easy. The 154 provides HART communication functionality that when combined with a Fluke 750 Series Documenting Process Calibrator or 720 Series Multifunction Process Calibrator enables the user to calibrate the full range of HART devices used in the process industry. The Android-based tablet comes configured with the FlukeHART mobile app that utilizes a long-range wireless HART modem, which connects to the HART transmitter being tested or configured. This allows technicians to wirelessly communicate with the device up to 250 feet away eliminating the need for technicians to stand next to the device so they can work from a safer, more convenient location. Additional features include:
- Full HART Device Description (DD) support of all HART devices and can monitor PV, SV, TV, QV, and other measured HART variables. Quarterly DD updates can be downloaded free from the Fluke website for three years from the first use of the product.
- A configurable connection cable that accepts either hook clips for connecting to wires or extended tooth alligator clips designed to connect to transmitter connection screw heads.
- A rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is designed to last for several days of device testing and configuration under normal conditions.
- A package which includes the Android-based tablet, charger and USB micro-cable, installed FlukeHART mobile application, HART modem, USB mini-cable, hook test clips, alligator clips, magnetic hanging strap and hard-side case.
