Moore Industries Joins PACTware Consortium and Releases New DTM for THZ3/TDZ3

Moore Industries Joins PACTware Consortium and Releases New DTM for THZ3/TDZ3
Moore Industries is now a member of PACTware, a consortium dedicated to developing and maintaining manufacturer and fieldbus-independent software for operating field instruments. The company has integrated PACTware into the range of monitoring and configuration options available with the new THZ3 and TDZ3 Dual Input Smart HART Temperature Transmitters.

The THZ3 and TDZ3 transmitters are both HART and DTM (Device Type Manager) programmable. They can be easily programmed and interrogated from anywhere at any time on a 4-20mA loop. This can be done with a standard HART handheld communicator, a HART-compatible host or with any FDT (Field Device Tool)-compliant host or program such as PACTware utilizing Moore Industries’ DTM.

The PACTware software can be downloaded directly from Moore Industries website and can be used with any manufacturer’s DTM. This utility provides comprehensive advanced programming capability for thorough transmitter configuration.

The THZ3 and TDZ3 are the first Moore Industries products to use an FDT-complaint host with a DTM, which lays the foundation for utilizing PACTware with all future smart transmitters. Using an FDT host such as PACTware with a DTM is quickly becoming a worldwide standard as customers search for a universal method of programming, monitoring and diagnosing their field instruments. FDT/DTM technologies eliminate problems caused by vendors having different software programming packages or programming for multiple protocols (such as HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and PROFIBUS PA).

PACTware is a consortium of 24 process control vendors who jointly maintain and distribute the PACTware FDT Frame Application to their end users. Leading industry research group ARC Advisory Group wrote in October 2014 that “the development of PACTware has given a major boost to FDT adoption in automation.” Partnering with PACTware allows Moore Industries to be on the cutting edge of developments in the monitoring and configuration of field instruments and applications.
