Fieldbus Foundation Interface Helps Eliminate Routine Maintenance
Ametek Process Instruments has added a Fieldbus Foundation interface to its Linkbus Remote Instrument Monitoring System (Linkbus Rims), which provides users of Ametek process analyzers and instruments with 24/7 plantwide access to a wide range of Ametek process instruments.
The added capability allows Ametek Rims to be integrated with a wide range of plant control systems. It also provides a data bridge so that older analyzers using proprietary communications protocols can be integrated into modern Fieldbus Foundation networks.
If outside assistance is needed, Ametek factory personnel can be granted access to provide additional troubleshooting expertise. The elimination of routine maintenance visits is designed to allow operators to focus their attention where it is needed most.
