The Emerson AW7060FFUSB USB Fieldbus Interface provides a convenient way to connect a desktop or laptop computer to FOUNDATION fieldbus device.
When used with AMS Device Manager, the USB Fieldbus Interfaces allows you to commission, configure, and troubleshoot fieldbus devices both on the bench and in the field. It can also provide power to a fieldbus device or segment.
The interface conforms to the Fieldbus Foundation physical layer standard as well as IEC standards for Emissions, Immunity, and Safety.
The AW7060FFUSB USB Fieldbus Interface can be used on a powered segment or to power the segment. The utility software defaults to the NO POWER mode and asks you if power should be provided from the interface. This helps prevent you from accidently applying power to a fieldbus network that is already powered.
When using in no power situations, such as on the bench, the USB Fieldbus Interface can provide up to 85 mA of power to the fieldbus segment. You can connect the interface directly to the field device without worrying about power supplies, power conditioners, terminators, etc. A LED indicator indicates whether power is being provided externally or via the USB Fieldbus Interface.
