Do more with one tool
3rd Quarter 2017, Other technologies


Designed for comfortable, one-handed operation in the field, the AMS Trex communicator is packaged in an evenly-balanced form factor with a rugged hand strap. It has built-in USB and Wi-Fi connectivity, so it is easy to move data to and from the communicator using the most convenient connectivity option.

The robust lithium-ion battery keeps it running for well over a full shift, even when it is being used to power other devices in the field.

The large display, touchscreen and task-based UI contribute to a modern, intuitive user experience and improved efficiency. Field changes can be automatically synchronised with the AMS Device Manager database. Device dashboards, advanced diagnostics and troubleshooting tips help the user sort out issues in the field as they occur. The Trex unit includes built-in functionality to power devices. This isolates the device from the rest of the system, helping pinpoint installation issues such as power supply, wiring, I/O cards or configuration. Power the loop functionality also allows device configuration in the field on new projects, even before power and I/O infrastructure are in place, helping to keep device configuration off critical path.

This rugged device is easy to hold, yet can take the bumps and drops that come from normal use on the plant. It is protected against moisture and extreme temperatures, allowing operation in all environmental conditions. The enclosure meets Intrinsic Safety standards, limiting the build-up of static electrical energy.
