Softing Industrial Automation broadened its product offerings with the 2014 acquisition of Trebing + Himstedt’s industrial communication product and service portfolio. Softing added the TH LINK PROFIBUS gateway, the certified DTM Library and the PACTware plant asset management software, which provides centralized access to field devices in process industry plants.

Softing also replaces Trebing + Himstedt as member of the PACTware Consortium.

The TH LINK PROFIBUS allows the centralized and time-saving parameterization of PROFIBUS and HART field devices. A streamlined design and small physical footprint make TH LINK easy to fit even in small control cabinets. When coupled with the certified Device Type Manager (DTM) Library, it forms the basis for very efficient device management.

The TH LINK gateway can also be combined with the clever diagnostics software to give users a manufacturer-independent tool for operating and monitoring field devices. It also allows constant monitoring of the state of all nodes on the network.

Softing is committed to further developing and enhancing these products to give customers the best possible service and further strengthen its position as market leader in network diagnostics and plant asset management.
