The MFC5150 Hart Communicator is the latest in Meriam's line of calibrators and field communicators, available from Engineering Measurements. Offered in Atex (intrinsically safe) and non-Atex versions, it reads device descriptions directly without any translation or subscription, allowing communication with any registered or unregistered Hart device. The Hart ( Highway Addressable Remote Transducer ) protocol is a commonly recognized international standard for advanced digital communication with instrumentation in industrial processes.
The MFC5150 communicator is capable of directly reading the complete library of Hart Device Descriptions (DDs), without translation. That's over 1,200 devices, and over 2.4 GB of data contained directly in the communicator. The device comes with a fast 1 GHz processor, 256 MB of Ram and 512 MB of flash memory. It is capable of supporting 4 GB SD card, which gives it the ability to store all existing HD files.
The 4.3 inch touchscreen offers an excellent anti-glare display, which enables comfortable mobile use in the dark or in direct sunlight. The full Qwerty keyboard and intuitive, smartphone-like international icons make it easy to navigate through all functions. No stylus is needed for the touchscreen. The MCF5150 has context-sensitive help and can play videos, so instructional videos can be loaded onto the device for use in the field. Resistant, it is IP54 rated, and is designed to be ergonomically easy to hold and use.
The MFC5150 is built on the SDC-625 infrastructure and runs under Windows CE. It also features hyperlinked menu paths, device-specific learnable shortcuts, instant power on, multiple languages, help context, videos, and PC-like TAB access to panes.
The portable device comes with a rechargeable 9400mAh battery, which ensures over 10 hours of continuous use and over 200 hours of standby time, twice as long as any portable communicator. Thanks to the supplied charging cradle, it has USB connectivity, which allows it to be updated over the Internet without subscription fees.
