The new Druck DPI 620 Genii Advanced Modular Calibrator and HART/Foundation Fieldbus Communicator from GE’s Measurement & Control business offers state-of-the-art calibration, communication and data integration using a smart interface with familiar swipe and touch commands for fast, intuitive and intelligent workflow on the move.
The DPI 620 Genii comprises four system components to provide the multi-functionality to perform duties formerly requiring a wide range of different instruments.
• At its core is its advanced, electrical, frequency and temperature calibrator. This compact and robust multi-function unit can measure and source mA, mV, V, Ohms, frequency and a variety of RTDs and thermocouples.
• Additionally Genii offers full HART communications capability through a full suite of communications protocols with enough memory and RAM to support almost limitless libraries. The DPI Genii also supports Foundation Fieldbus communications, giving engineers a full range of options for newer plants as well as more traditional infrastructures. The unparalleled data integration capability of the new DPI 620 Genii enables engineers to transfer data electronically, speeding up the process and minimizing errors.
• True to its Druck heritage, the DPI 620 Genii continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible in portable pressure generation and calibration. Pressure measurement is provided by interchangeable pressure modules that attach to the calibrator via a carrier.
• The calibrator and pressure modules can also be attached to a pressure generation station to form a fully integrated, high performance pressure calibrator. Three pressure stations are available, so that pneumatic pressure from 95% vacuum to 20 bar or up to 100 bar can be generated while hydraulic pressure capability is from 0 to 1000 bar.
As Mike Shelton, product manager at GE Measurement & Control, a GE Oil & Gas division, explains: “The DPI 620 Genii revolutionizes portable calibration. Genii is the first portable calibrator with an intuitive swipe screen interface that delivers incredible productivity with fast menu options and task functions. This compact electrical, temperature and pressure calibrator enables technicians to leave the office to work on the plant or in the field with full functionality. It also plays a vital role in providing the historical data needed for safety compliance and quality auditing, saving time and money while helping to exceed standards.”
Additionally, the new 4sight calibration and maintenance software gives the DPI 620 Genii even greater capability, providing enterprise-wide visibility and management control of all calibration and maintenance tasks delivering substantial reduction in running costs.
Available with a range of accessories, including soft carry cases and rigid transit solutions, the new Genii is expandable and adaptable to meet changing business and application requirements. A user can begin with the multi-function calibrator and then add pressure capability and other modularity over time. It offers significant cost savings through reduced inventory, user training and maintenance.
