Let’s open the week with a video for DeltaV distributed control system users on ways to integrate devices with Ethernet-based protocols into the DeltaV system. Examples of these devices include motor control centers, variable speed drives, programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and various types of online analyzers. In this 6:17 YouTube video, Emerson’s Rune Reppenhagen demonstrates […]

At a meeting last week with our global consultants, I caught up with Emerson’s Tinh Phan. He shared with me a new course that has been created using human-centered design (HCD) persona information by the Emerson Educational Services team. It addresses how to manage Foundation Fieldbus, HART, and Profibus smart field devices using AMS Device […]

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 […]

I wanted to bring visibility to several recent comments from an earlier post, Major Difference between Foundation Fieldbus and HART Protocols. Here’s the summation thought from the first comment: …With one software package, and as put above with HART pass-through, you can document EVERY HART instrument on site, and THEN with Plantweb, monitor the lot […]

A ControlGlobal article, Industrial Networks: The Ethernet vs. Fieldbus Cage Match, spawned a discussion in the PROFIBUS and PROFINET LinkedIn group. I wanted to share Emerson’s Jonas Berge‘s posts on this topic: Wait! Are we talking about “H1 fieldbus” or “H2 fieldbus”? It makes a big difference. Personally I would say: Ethernet is slowly taking […]
