KNOW MORE ABOUT AMS TREX Device Communicator Features

A Rugged and Reliable Device Communicator

For a communicator to be useful in the field,

it must be built to last and ready for anything.

The Trex communicator is designed to withstand the harsh conditions,

in and around manufacturing facilities.

The rugged device is easy to hold,

yet designed to take the bumps and drops that come from normal use in the plant.

Besides, the Trex communicator is protected against moisture and extreme temperatures,

allowing you to work regardless of environmental conditions.

The sturdy exterior is designed by Intrinsic Safety standards,

to limit the buildup of static electrical energy.

Unlike consumer-grade mobile devices,

the Trex communicator will withstand the abuse of a harsh field environment.

Designed based on user feedback and with field use in mind,

the carrying case features an access window,

that allows you to use the communicator

and contains pockets large enough to carry the charger,

extra lead sets, or other tools you may need in the field.

Touchscreen Display for the Field

The Trex communicator features a 5.7” resistive touchscreen display,

for easy use with bulky work gloves.

The adjustable backlit screen can be easily changed to save power,

or adapt to dark environments or bright sunlight,

ensuring a crisp display that can always be read – no matter the external conditions.

Software and Application Upgrades

The Trex communicator includes Upgrade Studio,

a PC application to help keep the Trex unit up-to-date with new software and apps.

Upgrade Studio can even connect to multiple devices at once,

allowing you to simultaneously upgrade,

and perform installs on your entire fleets of AMS Trex Device Communicators.

With Upgrade Studio, add critical diagnostic tools to your toolkit,

and push them out to any number of Trex communicators.

With multiple apps available and many more in development,

Upgrade Studio will make the Trex communicator your go-anywhere, do-anything device:

Field Communicator

Loop Diagnostics

Fieldbus Diagnostics

Valvelink Mobile

Trex Help

Engineered with You in Mind

Designed for comfortable, one-handed,

all-day operation in the field,

the Trex communicator is packaged in an evenly-balanced form factor,

with a rugged hand strap so you can easily hold it,

even when working in tight spaces.

It comes standard with 32 GB of application memory,

providing plenty of space to customize it with the apps of your choice.

With built-in Bluetooth, USB, and WiFi connectivity,

you can move data to and from the communicator,

using the connectivity option that is most convenient.

With numerous communication options,

your communicator has never been more connected.

The communicator’s robust lithium-ion power module

will keep it running for hours, well over a full shift,

even when it is being used to power other devices in the field.

Intrinsic Safety to Follow You Anywhere

The Trex communicator is built to go wherever you may need to be.

Unlike consumer mobile devices that cannot be taken into hazardous areas,

without shutting down the process or pulling a hot work permit,

the Trex unit meets global Intrinsic Safety requirements:

  • ATEX
  • CSA (US/Canada)
  • IECEx
  • FISCO

Gain freedom and flexibility with a communicator,

that can go anywhere you need to, when you need to,

without worrying if the device will put you at risk.

Power the Loop

The Trex communicator includes built-in functionality to power a device.

Simply connect the communicator to an instrument to power it.

Technicians no longer waste time rounding up a power supply

or confirming adequate loop resistance before testing,

speeding configuration on the bench.

Power the loop functionality allows device configuration in the field on new projects
—even before power and I/O infrastructure are in place.

Transmitter configuration no longer needs to be the last step of new projects.

Configure transmitters before the host system, wiring, piping,
and other project elements arrive,

keeping transmitter configuration from being a critical path item,

allowing more flexibility in new project scheduling and leading to faster startups.

Powering devices from the communicator,
allows you to isolate the device from the rest of the system,

helping you identify installation problems like power supply,
wiring, I/O card, and configuration issues.

Powerful Valve Diagnostics

Valve problems are particularly costly to diagnose and repair.

Field technicians are often required to pull a valve to investigate a problem,

and removing valves for inspection usually means shutting down the process.

Further complicating troubleshooting, technicians often need to disassemble the valve,

to determine the root cause of the problem.

This frequently leads to further damage to the valve,

ending in a more time consuming and expensive repair.

Using the ValveLink Mobile app on the Trex unit,

you can perform valve diagnostics in the field,

including valve signature, dynamic error band, PD one button sweep,

and step response,

without having to pull the valve or perform invasive troubleshooting steps.

ValveLink Mobile works with HART and Foundation Fieldbus Fisher® FIELDVUE™ digital valve controllers,

and provides an intuitive user interface that is easy to understand and use.

The large touchscreen on the Trex communicator makes it easier,

than ever to see all valve diagnostic details.

Diagnose Communication Problems

The Trex communicator can configure and troubleshoot Foundation Fieldbus devices,

and segments in your plant.

Use the communicator to create a quality segment,

by diagnosing the network DC voltage and average noise.

Detect power supply problems using the communicator’s power the loop functionality,

or by monitoring low-frequency noise on a segment.

You can also verify whether the DC voltage is correct in HART loops.

What is the default level of support for Trex units?

A support option must be included with every unit sale.

Standard Support is the default option,

which provides a limited warranty to cover the Trex unit against defects,

in materials and workmanship under normal use and care.

Support also includes access to the Global Service Center (GSC) phone support,

firmware updates and automated Device Driver (DD) updates.

Does the customer have the option to sign up for multi-year Standard Support?

Customers have the option to buy three-year standard support,

which will provide customers access to GSC phone support,

firmware updates and automated DD updates.

Note that addition standard support does not extend hardware warranty.

How can the Trex unit be protected against accidental damage?

Customers may purchase either one-year or three-year Premium Support,

that will include accidental damage support.

What is the coverage of the accidental damage?

The following items are covered:

  • Liquid spilled on or in unit
  • Drops, falls, and other collisions
  • amage caused by electrical surge
  • Damaged or broken LCD due to a drop or fall
  • Blown fuse in ammeter
  • The following items are NOT covered:
  • Intentional damage (such as hammer marks)
  • Normal wear
  • Cosmetic damage
  • Theft

How many times can one unit be fixed under “accidental damage” per year?

Only one incident in a given 12-month period is allowed per unit under Premium Support.

Can a customer upgrade Trex support from Standard to Premium?

Yes, if a customer signed up for Standard Support,

they will have the option to upgrade to Premium Support upon inspection,

by a primary service center.

Can a customer renew Premium Support on a Trex unit?

Yes, if a customer signed up for Premium Support,

they have the option to renew it for additional years.

Standard Support can be purchased at any time.

Premium Support can be initially be purchased with new units only.

Both Standard Support and Premium Support can be renewed after support expires.

Sino-Instrument offer all kinds of pressure transducers, DP transmitters, magnetic flow meters, and other automated instruments,

which can work with HART.
