Emerson 475 Field Communicator

Simplify Work in the Field with Rugged, Reliable Handhelds

The Emerson 475 Field Communicator is designed to simplify work in the field. This built-for-purpose handheld communicator delivers universal support for HART and Foundation Fieldbus devices, a full-color graphical user interface, and a long-lasting 40-hour Lithium-Ion power module. It is designed to withstand the knocks and shocks from normal use in the field.

The weight of the 475 is evenly distributed for comfortable one-handed operation in the field. It runs on Windows CE, a robust, real-time operating system. The 475 has plenty of memory to allow for future expansion. It has 32 MB of application memory and 1 GB of memory on its System Card, along with an 80 MHz Hitachi SH3 microprocessor.

Manage Device Configurations

Back up hundreds of device configurations and transfer them between your communicator and a PC. This library of device configurations is easy to view and print for analysis.

Universal – HART and FOUNDATION Fieldbus

With over 1,300 different HART and FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices available from more than 100 manufacturers, the 475 Field Communicator works with all your devices to positively impact your bottom line. Through Easy Upgrade, you always have access to the latest HART and Fieldbus drivers. With the 475 Field Communicator, you are guaranteed universal HART and FOUNDATION Fieldbus support in a single, intrinsically safe handheld communicator.

The 475 Field Communicator is designed to operate with a wide range of HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus devices independent of device manufacturer. Device interoperability is achieved through the Electronic Device Description Language (EDDL) technology supported by the HART Communication Foundation and Fieldbus Foundation.

475 Main Features

See and Feel the Difference

The 3.5 in. full color touch screen display uses transflective technology, making it easy to read in both bright sunlight and normal lighting. To make sure all conditions are covered, a multi-level backlight is included, allowing bright, crisp display even in plant areas with dim light.

The touch screen display and large physical navigation buttons provide for efficient use both on the bench and in the field. The icon-based user interface allows for quick and efficient navigation.

The full color graphics capability is provided as standard with every 475 Field Communicator. The powerful EDDL technology transforms data from field devices into a graphical display. Charts, graphs, gauges, and product images are just a few of the ways in which important device data can be displayed.

The 475 in the Field

Rugged and Reliable

The 475 is designed for tough use in a plant or mill. Its large keys and physical navigation buttons allow for one-handed operation, even with work gloves on. The rugged display is designed to take the knocks and shocks from normal use in the plant, and has been shock tested to survive a 1-meter drop onto concrete.

The 475 Field Communicator’s Protective Rubber Boot provides added protection in the field and in the toolbox. Both the rubber boot and 475 housing are designed in accordance with Intrinsic Safety standards to limit the build up of static electrical energy.
