There are hundreds of different components in a typical plant: controllers, remote I/O, electrical drives, safety equipment, actuators and sensors. Each must be wired, powered and configured and integrated into the system as part of a normal start-up.  Recognizing the challenges this creates, with multiple devices, tools and manuals, Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser provide end users with a single document containing tested methods for integrating a device into the PlantPAx system, which helps to reduce risk, and minimize time and effort during start-up.

FF1412 PlantPAxlogoRockwell Automation has created a full library of integration documents that supply information on installation, configuration, startup and operation, and provide assurance these field devices meet PlantPAx system interoperability performance measures. A series of these documents are based on testing the compatibility of Endress+Hauser instruments via FOUNDATION fieldbus to the PlantPAx system.

View the FOUNDATION fieldbus Integration Documents for: Promass 83 Flowmeter, iTEMP TMT 162 Temperature Transmitter, Prowirl 73 Flowmeter, Cerabar S Pressure Transmitter and Deltabar S Differential Pressure Transmitter. The library also contains Integration Documents for HART, Profibus and EtherNet/IP technology as well as test reports for many other device suppliers.
