FieldComm Group’s field device integration technology standard, FDI, received the Best Technology Booth award at the Mumbai Automation Expo 2017. Now in its 12th year, Automation Expo is the largest automation focused exhibition in India, drawing over 500 exhibitors from 25 countries.
Selected by a prominent judging panel of industry executives and experts, FDI was chosen as the award winner from a pool of over 500 exhibitors. While announcing the award, Mr. B.R. Mehta, Senior Vice President of Reliance Industries, stated, “In the future we will no longer need to worry about the protocol that we use on the plant floor because FDI will enable simplified integration of all protocols to DCS, asset management, and mobile systems.”
Ted Masters, President of FieldComm Group, said, “FDI enables a seamless evolution from existing device description languages to a new standard, which adds capability and radically simplifies getting field device data into hosts and the cloud. We are thrilled to receive recognition by a panel of industry executives and experts from the Automation Fair for this exciting new technology.”
