Softing Offers Fieldbus Configuration Tool for Linking Devices and Portable USB interfaces

Jan. 3, 2017

Softing’s FOUNDATION Fieldbus configuration software is an intuitive, easy-to-use tool to configure communication links and function blocks for FOUNDATION Fieldbus networks. The software is designed to work with standard interface and gateway products that are based on Softing's FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 Host stack.

[sidebar id =1]Get direct access to FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 segments and H1 devices by using the software in combination with Softing’s portable USB interface (FFusb). One major benefit of Softing’s FFusb is that it can be configured to not interfere with the active process control system while connected to the network.

In combination with Softing’s Linking Device (FG-200) the software is used to integrate up to four FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 links into control systems supporting Modbus (e.g., legacy Bailey DCS) or to implement and configure control-in-the-field applications. Moreover, the FG-200 provides high-performance access to process data while, at the same time, supports FOUNDATION Fieldbus-specific aspects like reduced cabling, central field device parameterization, comprehensive diagnostics, or intrinsically safe device segments.
