What is a FDT Frame Application?

The Frame Application is a software application that enables a graphical interface or 'view' used to configure, maintain and diagnose intelligent measurement devices from different leading suppliers. A Frame functions as a "window" or "view" that displays device parameters and information by way of an installed DTM provided by the device supplier. This combination provides a simple, clear and easy-to-understand device management environment that can change your view of the device by indicating diagnostic warnings of potential problems which may help you reduce maintenance and operation costs.
