FDT Technology White Paper Can Help You Lower Costs by Putting Your Assets to Work
The white paper, "Specifying FDT Technology – Putting Your Assets to Work!" released by The FDT Group provides engineers that specify automation or asset management systems with an overview of FDT Technology. This white paper also suggests text to use as a part of the request for proposal or ordering specifications to ensure that appropriate FDT products are purchased. This White Paper is available at no cost and can be downloaded at www.fdtgroup.org/specwp.
Significant financial benefits for manufacturing and processing facilities are achieved by preventing unplanned shutdowns, reducing downtime and lowering maintenance costs. One way to achieve these results is to make certain that all installed assets are used to the best of their ability.
Over the past several years, FDT Technology has been embedded in the majority of distributed control systems and smart field devices – often without being utilized by the user. FDT Technology, which is both an international (IEC 62453) and ISA (ISA103) standard, provides a unified method for accessing intelligent device information independent of the field communication protocol or control system supplier. When field devices are enabled to share their entire configuration, status and diagnostic information, they are being used to their full ability, reducing costs over the lifecycle of the facility.
The white paper answers many of the most common questions including, What is FDT Technology?, What is a DTM?, What is a Frame Application?, How does FDT integrate into my automation or asset management system?, and How do I include FDT Technology in my project?
