Predictive Diagnostics Suite Available on Any Foundation Fieldbus System
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.
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 was 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. The product includes a Windows-based configuration software package for Foundation fieldbus that enables field device linking and configuration. Standard Ethernet and a serial Modbus interface provide connectivity to systems without fieldbus capability. Host protocols such as Modbus RTU, Modbus/TCP, or HSE enable the data-exchange between the FG-110-FF and other host applications.
