Learn How Open Systems Unlock Value

Jan. 20, 2020

FieldComm Group’s protocols and technologies form the base of the two latest openness and interoperability efforts in the process industries. This is because the use of FDI, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, WirelessHART and HART can more easily provide long-sought, often-stranded information from field devices to systems across the enterprise, which is the ultimate goal of openness and interoperability.

FDI is the next step of device management. It provides a unified description and allows for field communication standard-independent device management using one tool. It separates device representation from the underlying communication technology and lays the groundwork for digital twin representation of the devices.

Offering these device models through the OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) makes them available, not only to control systems, but also to further applications as formulated by NAMUR, the international user association of automation technology in the process industries, and the Open Process Automation Forum (OPAF).
