FFeasy: Rapid Realization of Simple FOUNDATION H1 Transmitters
By Foundation Fieldbus
Softing's new FFeasy solution significantly reduces the implementation effort to enable your field device as a FOUNDATION fieldbus interface. The FFeasy software includes up to four AI function blocks for the process values and up to 25 customized parameters. A mapping tool based on Microsoft Excel® simplifies customized mapping of the parameters.
Softing's FOUNDATION fieldbus starter kit for the realization of a small network and the flasher toolset are an integral part of the FFeasy package.
The software has a FOUNDATION fieldbus ITK certification and is based on the Softing standard hardware solution FBK-2, which has already passed a physical layer and conformance test (CTK). As a result, a FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 transmitter product developed based on the FFeasy kit only requires the short and very cost-effective re-certification process at a Fieldbus Foundation certification lab (private label ITK).
Currently, solutions for a fieldbus connection are available, which allow use of an existing serial interface (UART) with MODBUS or HART protocol as a FOUNDATION fieldbus connection. As such, the FFeasy approach is suitable for a wide range of HART or MODBUS-enabled devices (i.e., transmitters for temperature, density, flow, level etc.).
