Courtesy: GE Measurement and ControlGE Measurement & Control’s DPI 620 Genii combines multifunctional test and calibration capabilities with digital HART and Foundation Fieldbus communication in a single hand-held device. The DPI 620 Genii integrates with calibration and maintenance software, so that calibration and configuration data is available from the field devices through to enterprise resource planning (ERP). This provides maintenance regimes and instrument engineers, with accurate, fast and reliable information to improve workflows and increase productivity. The DPI 620 Genii is designed for use in the process, chemical, petro-chemical, oil & gas, pharmaceutical, and power generation sectors.

The DPI620’s duties can be expanded by the addition of a uniquely flexible pressure system. This comprises a range of 32 high accuracy pressure measurement modules with ranges from 25 mbar up to 1000 bar; three pressure generating stations so that pressure can be generated pneumatically from 95 percent vacuum up to 20 bar to 100 bar, and hydraulically up to 1000 bar. Its broad range solves the transportation and EHS issues of using gas bottles and regulators. 

The HART and Fieldbus communication capabilities of Genii work seamlessly with the calibration functions allowing configuration, commissioning, and calibration of digital devices. It also comes with built-in libraries of all 1300 registered HART and 600 Foundation Fieldbus device descriptions (DD). Analogue variables can be measured and sourced without the need for secondary calibration equipment and, to complete its self-sufficiency, Genii provides its own 24V loop supply and contains an integral 250 ohm HART resistor.
