Field Xpert system architecture

Operating principle: Device connection

The Field Xpert can access field devices in various ways. Make a point-to-point connection directly on the device or from the control cabinet using a suitable USB or Bluetooth interface. In addition, it is possible to access a specific gateway to establish a point to-bus connection and thus access several devices via one entry point. To access devices wirelessly, a Wi-Fi access point is required in the system or it is also possible to access individual devices via a wireless hotspot.
