Measures Standard Fieldbus Diagnostic Data in the Field for Quicker Preventive Action

Phoenix Contact's Field Diagnostics Module (FDM) measures standard Foundation fieldbus diagnostic data in the field for quicker preventive action. Long cable runs and associated signal degradation do not affect accurate electrical measurements. Instead, data is transmitted back to the control room in real time where operators can manage alarms without maintenance permits or process interruption.
