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 […]

Emerson’s Klaus Erni shared some “how to” tips for using digital bus technologies in the DeltaV system. He opened how Profibus DP can be used today since the DeltaV v10.3 release. This technology is used quite a bit in pharmaceutical & biotech manufacturing as well as specialty chemicals manufacturing. With DeltaV version 12.3, Profibus DP […]

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 highlighted some of the challenges North American refiners face in an earlier post with tight oil from shale formations. Emerson’s Michelle Weimert has Hydrocarbon Processing article, Leverage diagnostics to keep production running smoothly, which looks at the role of temperature measurement diagnostics can play in reliable refinery operations. The article opens: The continuing trend […]

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 […]
