FDI: Key to Intelligent Device Integration

Jan. 20, 2020

As the process industries continue to go through a digital transformation, as evidenced by the emergence of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industrie 4.0, demand for integrated systems and components is rising dramatically.

For the “system of tomorrow” to operate reliably and effectively, industrial organizations must be able to easily integrate all elements of their facilities to take advantage of the digital data that automation protocols like FOUNDATION Fieldbus and HART (including WirelessHART) provide. They need a standardized way to integrate devices and systems in order to gain greater control over where and how they get their information.

Automation end users continue to look for efficiencies and cost savings at their plants through reduced life cycle costs, simplified ease of use, and most importantly, open systems. FDI’s benefits are broad and applicable to various plant personnel disciplines.
