New technologies move fieldbus into next generation

Overview:

The fieldbus industry has responded to the disparate or non-existent interfaces to control systems and configuration tools with the introduction of two new complementary technologies – FDT and Enhanced EDDL.

From FDT Group

THERE HAS been a significant amount of discussion that, somehow, pits FDT against EDD. It is hoped that this discussion has made it clear that there is no overlap at all in the two technologies. The introduction of these applications has been slow due to the disparate or non-existent interfaces to control systems and configuration tools. This White Paper explains the EDDL language; system problems not solved by DD; Enhanced EDDL; the limiations of EDDL; FDT; and the limiations of FDT.
