June 12, 2008
DPharp EJA V2.5 device Now Certified

Yokogawa Electric Corp.’s DPharp EJA V2.5 device type manager (DTM) was recently certified for use with Foundation fieldbus by the FDT Group, a world first.

This certified Foundation fieldbus device DTM is fully interoperable with all certified frame applications, including Yokogawa’s latest FieldMate R1.03 and PRM R3.02 asset management systems. This allows users intuitive access to all the advanced features of Foundation fieldbus devices.

In addition, the FDT Group recently completed the toolset needed for the Foundation fieldbus certification of device DTMs, and Yokogawa used the latest dtmInspector 2.1 to verify that the device DTM for its EJA pressure/differential pressure transmitters met the FDT Group’s specifications for the Foundation fieldbus protocol.
