FDI Prototype Demonstration

Nov. 15, 2011
I just read that the new FDI Corporation is already showing benefits with prototypes of the first FDI components –proof that the concepts being proposed will work have been demonstrated on an ABB system. The prototypes include communications with HART, FF and Profibus protocol devices. The article on Control Engineering Europe’s web site http://www.controlengeurope.com/article/46341/First-working-prototype-of-FDI.aspx also includes expected delivery dates for the remainder of the project indicating all the parts should be ready by the end of 2012.
