Emerson Process Management and Softing have announced that Softing's Linking Device and Gateway FG-110-FF has been successfully integrated and tested with Emerson's AMS Suite predictive maintenance software application to connect to any Foundation fieldbus network.

This development should provide users with the more flexibility to use AMS Device Manager for online diagnostics and alerts regardless of their host system vendor. AMS suite uses predictive intelligence to improve the availability and performance of key production assets, including mechanical equipment, electrical systems, process equipment, instruments and valves. This integrated family of diagnostic software applications enables users to detect plant equipment problems before they occur. 

Softing's Linking Device and Gateway FG-110-FF is designed for plant operators and system integrators in process environments. It provides connectivity to up to four Foundation fieldbus H1 segments with as many as 64 field devices.
