Yokogawa announces certification of world’s first Foundation fieldbus device DTM
Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that its DPharp EJA V2.5 device type manager (DTM) has been certified for Foundation fieldbus by the FDT Group, a world first.
This certification marks another step forward for Yokogawa’s VigilantPlant Asset Excellence initiative, allowing users of Yokogawa’s intelligent Foundation fieldbus devices to tap user-friendly field device tool (FDT)/DTM technology with the guarantee of interoperability and trouble-free installation.
With a large number of device DTMs already certified for the HART and Profibus communications protocols, certification for Foundation fieldbus was avidly awaited. As a strong supporter and key member of the FDT Group, Yokogawa is proud to announce the world’s first certified Foundation fieldbus device DTM.
This certified Foundation fieldbus device DTM is fully interoperable with all certified frame applications, including Yokogawa’s latest FieldMate R1.03 and PRM R3.02 asset management systems. This allows users intuitive access to all the advanced features of Foundation fieldbus devices. Yokogawa’s release of the world’s first certified Foundation fieldbus device DTM signifies that customers can now deploy HART and Foundation fieldbus devices without the fear of interoperability pitfalls and seamlessly use a wealth of field information.
The FDT Group recently completed the toolset needed for the Foundation fieldbus certification of device DTMs, and Yokogawa used the latest dtmINSPECTOR 2.1 to verify that the device DTM for its EJA pressure/differential pressure transmitters met the FDT Group’s specifications for the Foundation fieldbus protocol. Leveraging its certified Interoperability Test Lab in Singapore, Yokogawa accelerated this rigorous certification process.
