Catching the Process Fieldbus - James Powell, P. Eng. and Henry Vandelinde, Ph.D.
This books lays the groundwork for communication design and provides a firm understanding of what is required to implement a PROFIBUS system.
The SITRANS AW210 WirelessHART adapter is a communications component which integrates different field devices in a WirelessHART network.
Process Device Manager (PDM)
With SIMATIC PDM, you can use one software program to configure a number of field devices by different manufacturers using a single user interface
HART Field Communications Protocol
HART is a widely used communication standard for field devices.
PROFIBUS is a universal, open fieldbus which permits
fast communication with intelligent, distributed I/O devices (PROFIBUS with DP system)
communication and simultaneous powering for transmitters and actuators
In addition to the enormous savings resulting from the reduction in cabling and input/output hardware, the significantly greater amount of information associated with digital data transmission implies significant cost advantages for plant operation and maintenance.
Foundation Fieldbus is an open protocol designed to allow bidirectional communications to field instruments.
This communication enables:
flexible expandability based on Device Description
distributed data transfer (DDT)
