When dealing with critical Zone 1/21 applications, having constant control and supervision over a particular application can ensure safe and reliable process operation. With Pepperl+Fuchs’ new 6500 series Ex px purge and pressurization system, users now have the ability to maintain continuous real-time monitoring of a purged enclosure or solution through RS-485 communication with HART protocol.
As a standard feature on all 6500 series control units, this communication software provides reliable diagnostic and preventative maintenance functions directly back to the control room PLC or AMS. Designed with a simple, user-friendly interface, this software enables the monitoring of essential functions of the purged solution, including:
- Enclosure pressure, flow, and temperature status
- Enclosure faults and alarms
- Purge cycle statistics
- System log files (last purge time, last shutdown, system on time)
This software is available as a free download DTM file. Frame applications, such as PACTware, must be installed separately.
