The MC Toolkit Handheld Configurator is used by maintenance engineers, managers and instrument technicians to monitor, configure, diagnose and manage smart field devices. It manages Honeywell DE devices as well as any supplier’s HART devices. The latest MCT404 model also authenticates ISA100 wireless devices and supports Honeywell’s PIE tool to manage UDA2182 analyzers and UDC Controllers.

The MC Toolkit delivers value through rugged and reliable construction, lowest lifecycle costs, and simpler and easier device management.​​​​​​​​

What Is It?

The MC Toolkit (model MCT404) Handheld Configurator uses the CN70 Series Intermec PDA for managing smart field devices. It is available in intrinsic and non-intrinsic safe versions for use in safe as well as hazardous areas. The toolkit comes with two software applications:

  • The MC Toolkit software application for configuring Honeywell DE transmitters such as SmartLine Pressure, ST 3000 pressure and STT 3000 temperature transmitters.
  • The Field Device Configurator (FDC) for configuring any HART 5, HART 6, and wired HART 7 devices with a device description (DD/EDDL) file compliant with the HART Communication Foundation.

Each MC Toolkit is loaded with all HART device description files so that any HART device can be configured utilizing common, universal and device-specific commands.​

How Does It Work?

MC Toolkit Handheld Configurator supports open industry standards. An IrDA port is also available for provisioning Honeywell ISA100 based wireless devices. It uses unmodified vendor DD/EDDL files for performing device configuration, management and diagnostics tasks. An intuitive DD manager utility in the FDC application helps easily add DD/EDDLs into the library, eliminating the wait for new software releases. Users can download the updated software from the Honeywell website to keep their tool current.

MC Toolkit provides full access to device parameters, configuration and diagnostics. When used with Honeywell’s Field Device Manager application, its offline configuration feature allows users to complete device configuration without the device being physically present. The configuration can be downloaded later to the device to significantly save time during plant commissioning.​

What Problems Does It Solve?

MC Toolkit Handheld Configurator is a rugged and reliable offering that simplifies device management and reduces overall lifecycle cost by eliminating the need for multiple tools and offers wide usage across many device protocols. It supports plant reliability and safety by helping users prioritize maintenance and make better decisions. MC Toolkit also makes employees more efficient with device information and status just a few clicks away for effective on-the-go device management and maintenance.​
