Let’s end the week with a short video showing the durability of a smart field device communicator. In this 1:47 YouTube video, AMS Trex Durability Tests, the AMS Trex device communicator is given some abuse to demonstrate its ruggedness.

Emerson's Nick Meyer


Emerson's Stephen Mozia


Emerson’s Nicholas Meyer and Stephen Mozia team up to see if the AMS Trex unit can handle being tossed down a set of stairs and still perform (spoiler alert—it does).

Stephen represented Nigeria as a shot putter in the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He shows off his athletic abilities giving the AMS Trex device a mighty heave—shot put style—across a grassy area.

The device keeps right on going and even performed after being doused with water to clean out all the grass remnants.

Visit the AMS Trex Device Communicator page for more on its capabilities and specifications. Hopefully any questions around ruggedness are answered!
