    Fieldbus Functionality WARNING The 375 Field Communicator draws approximately 17 mA from the fieldbus segment. Be sure the power supply or barrier on the fieldbus segment has the capacity to provide this additional current. If a heavily loaded fieldbus segment is drawing near the capacity of the segment’s power supply, connecting the 375 Field Communicator may result in loss of communication.

    Card Reader A USB device that is capable of reading the 375 System Card, which is located under the battery in the 375 Field Communicator. You can use a supported card reader to transfer system software and device descriptions to a 375 from the Easy Upgrade Programming Utility.
  • Page 126 See also Device Description. Easy Upgrade option An upgrade option to the 375 Field Communicator System Card. It lets you update the 375 system software and DDs using the Easy Upgrade Programming Utility at your site. It also lets you select and enable new licenses to add new functionality in your 375.
  • Page 127 EDDL, a 375 Field Communicator with a Graphics license, and the 375 system software version 2.0 or higher. If the 375 Field Communicator does not have a Graphics license, enhanced DDs can still be used. However, the graphical representations will not be displayed.
  • Page 128 After being instantiated, these blocks operate like any other block in the device. The 375 Field Communicator supports the commands to instantiate and to delete function and transducer blocks in a fieldbus device.
  • Page 129 LAS. Lithium Ion Power Module A Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery used to power the 375 Field Communicator. The Power Module has a green, 6-pin power supply/charger connector. See Figure 2-3 on page 2-11 for the location of this connector. The Power Module must be charged by the power supply/charger with the green connector.
  • Page 130 Segments are linked by repeaters to form a complete Fieldbus. Shout/deaf mode A communication mode in the 375 Field Communicator where the amplitude of the 375 signal is increased to help it communicate with devices on a noisy loop. The 375 Field Communicator determines when to enter this mode.
  • Page 131 G-vii Stand-By A power option that turns off the screen display and parts of the 375 Field Communicator. Use this feature to save battery life or to reduce the boot-up time. The green, slowly flashing multifunction LED indicates the 375 Field Communicator is in stand-by mode.
