I want to once again elevate the comments of Emerson’s Jonas Berge around the topic of educational materials for the Foundation fieldbus digital communications technology. In a post, For Foundation Fieldbus Segment Design-Use Typicals Approach, a commenter asked: Fieldbus technologies have always presented an element of fear amongst the “uninitiated” user. Is there a Fieldbus […]

Smart field devices based on HART, Foundation fieldbus, and Profibus had standards-based files to integrate them with control and asset management systems. The file types, EDD and DTM were not compatible with one another causing process manufacturers and automation suppliers to grapple with both. Field Device Integration (FDI) provides a common approach for managing information […]
