Softing introduces a mobile, multiprotocol interface for field device configuration
With the introduction of mobiLink on April 1st, 2018, Softing is the first company to offer access to the major process automation protocols HART, Foundation Fieldbus and PROFIBUS PA with one single interface. mobiLink communicates via USB or Bluetooth and is perfectly suited for commissioning and maintenance with handheld host devices.
“In the past, customers had to care around an interface for each protocol. Now with mobiLink, Softing is the first company to offer access to three protocols with one single device. Thanks to mobiLink, our customers can access field devices with maximum flexibility and mobility and carry out a large number of configuration tasks,” says Thomas Hilz, Program Marketing Manager at Softing Industrial.
mobiLink is battery-operated, extremely robust and suitable for use in explosive areas. It communicates with handheld host devices like smart phones and tablets via Bluetooth and has a USB interface for bench host operation.
