Mobile Field Device Management (FieldMate)

FieldMate is one tool for all, regardless of communication protocols and can be easily aligned with other manufacturers’ products. This portable computer-based configuration and management software tool performs numerous tasks, including device interface, database, verification, and input loop check support.

FieldMate incorporates the open field device tool/device type manager (FDT/DTM) standard and is compliant with DTMs per the FDT 1.2 and FDT 2.0. FieldMate supports built-in DTMs, deciphering the existing Device Description (DD) instantaneously for other vendors’ devices that do not have DTMs available.

Application Note
Overview:

Engineers adjust/configure the field devices during the maintenance, if necessary. FieldMate supports these maintenance works effectively. This web page introduces the Features, Benefits, and usage example.

Overview:

Users go on the patrol to check the situation in the field and check the device status as needed. If abnormalities are discovered, users record the conditions and install the maintenance tag onto the field devices to alert other users (inspectors). The FieldMate (Field Device Adjustment and Configuration Tool) can serve in these situations where abnormalities occur to take notes and photos of the conditions, allowing for detailed records.

Overview:

We always make the work completion reports. In the same manner, generally engineers make the reports after completion of the field device installation/configuration/maintenance etc. The FieldMate (Field Device Adjustment and Configuration Tool) can generate these reports for field device parameters (name and values) by only one-touch/click to save the time (it is not necessary to write down the parameter values in the reports manually). These reports also contribute to confirm the parameters values with device status during the trouble, especially.

Overview:

Engineers replace the field device due to some reason such as its failure. FieldMate (field device adjustment/configuration tool) provides the easy its replacement function (copy the necessary parameter values from old field device to new one).

Overview:

Valves require the scheduled inspection and maintenance. The FieldMate (Field Device adjustment and configuration Tool) provides the user friendly interface to adjust/configure the valves (positioners). FieldMate supports to check the valve status and to configure their parameter values toward efficient plant operations (especially, saving the time for inspection and maintenance).

Overview:

Smart devices, like Yokogawa’s line of Total Insight transmitters and flowmeters contribute to Digital Transformation during operations and throughout the lifecycle of the instrument.

Yokogawa Technical Report
Overview:

In 2005, Yokogawa announced "VigilantPlant" as a concept to ward the realization of a type of plant operation that is considered ideal by our customers.

Yokogawa Technical Report
Overview:

Many field devices are now being connected to process control systems through fieldbus communication. These field devices have intelligence, and so many settings and adjustments can be made through fieldbus communication.

Yokogawa Technical Report
Overview:

FieldMate application software runs mainly on a notebook PC and is a key component epitomizing Yokogawa's asset excellence (AE) concept together with Plant Resource Manager (PRM). FieldMate is available in basic and advanced versions. The basic version enables parameter setting and adjustment as well as status check of a field device by directly connecting a FieldMate-installed PC to a Highway Addressable Remote Transducer (HART) device or FOUNDATION™ fieldbus H1 device.

Overview:

FieldMate is field device adjustment and configuration software applying Electric Device Description Language (EDDL) and Field Device Tool/Device Type Manager (FDT/ DTM) technologies. The FDT/DTM is being standardized and disseminated by the FDT Group, a nonprofit organization. Yokogawa is also aggressively participating in those activities.

Yokogawa Technical Report
Overview:

The FieldMate versatile device management wizard is PC software mainly used for configuring and adjusting field devices. Under the concept of "one tool for all," Yokogawa has been enhancing this software to support a wide range of field devices and field communication protocols.

Yokogawa Technical Report
Overview:

Yokogawa has been leading the process automation industries as one of the pioneers in field digital technologies represented by the FOUNDATION fieldbus™ and Field Device Tool/Device Type Manager (FDT/DTM).

Overview:

2011

Decades of operation, modernization and expansion have left many chemical plants with a somewhat haphazard automation mix of different controls, process control systems, remote I/Os and field devices. The various components may use different communication protocols such as HART, PROFIBUS or FOUNDATION Fieldbus, and are often based on different device integration technologies. 

Overview:

November 2006

Yokogawa FieldMate Advance software can configure and adjust intelligent field devices from different manufacturers and on multiple fieldbus protocols. This flexibility is possible thanks to the use of Field Device Tool (FDT) open standards developed by the FDT Group, of which Yokogawa is a board member.

Overview:

Combining smart instruments, analyzers and valves with a modern asset management system can provide faster response to incidents, enable proactive maintenance, and reduce downtime.

Overview:

This article describes how a multivariable pressure transmitter with built-in dynamic compensation can compensate for many of the errors and inaccuracies that can occur in differential pressure based flow measurements. It also shows how the built-in computing and communications capabilities of such modern flow meters ensure ease of integration with field device tool (FDT) and device type manager (DTM) tools in monitoring and control systems.

Overview:

As digital and multi-functional field devices are increasingly used in the process industry today, users have access to large amounts of information available from such devices.
