Endress+Hauser introduces the Field Xpert SMT70, a rugged tablet PC for commissioning
and maintenance staff to manage field instruments
and document the work progress. The tablet comes
preinstalled with DeviceCare device configuration
software and device library —so it is ready to go,
right out of the box.
The Field Xpert SMT70 supports HART,
PROFIBUS DP/PA, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, Modbus,
CDI and Endress+Hauser service interfaces. It can
connect to field instrumentation devices directly
via a USB or Bluetooth wireless modem, or via
a gateway, remote I/O or multiplexer to a bus
The Field Xpert device library has more than
2,700 pre-installed device and communication
drivers, allowing it to work with many different
instruments from a wide variety of vendors.
The drivers can be used to communicate with
virtually all HART and FOUNDATION Fieldbus
devices, and additional device drivers (DTMs)
can be easily installed if required. Generic HART
DTM and PROFIBUS profile DTMs also enable
communication with field devices using these

Osmose pole-restoration systems are designed to restore poles weakened by decay or other
damage so they exceed NESC requirements.
Osmose systems restore the required strength in
the groundline section of a pole usually for one-third or one-fourth of the cost of pole replacement.
In suburban or urban locales, the savings may be
The Osmo-C2-Truss® has become the most
widely used option for distribution applications.
Some restoration applications are not
recommended for either C-Truss method due
to the pole’s condition above ground. In these
cases, or where capacity, appearance, or difficult
access are considerations, Fiberwrap II offers an
additional restoration option with greater ultimate
Osmose pole-restoration systems

The Cavity Pad Plus model joins DICA’s Safety Tech® Outrigger Pad product line.
Safety Tech Outrigger Pads provide a strong, rigid,
and easy to use foundation for a wide variety of
outrigger enabled equipment, including mobile
cranes, digger derricks, aerials and concrete
pumps. The Cavity Pad Plus model is designed for
equipment such as digger derricks and aerials
that can operate in managed un-level conditions,
which increases lateral forces.
Cavity Pad Plus 1.0” high edge guards have an
inverted bevel design that provides an additional
measure of stabilizer foot stopping safety. Cavity
Pad Plus features a 1” high footbrake with an
inverted beveled design. The inverted bevel design
traps the outrigger foot which prevents it from
sliding off of the crane stabilizer pad. “This is
a significant improvement in the design of our
original Cavity Pad,” said Kris Koberg, CEO.
