These devices can now access multiple variables over a single pair of wires in a point-to-point or multi-drop configuration. The interface eliminates the need for technicians to cover hundreds of miles configuring and diagnosing instrument problems in wide-area SCADA networks, while also reducing installation and wiring costs. “Enabling the use of Foundation fieldbus-based devices in remote oil and gas production, pipeline, and water and wastewater applications marks a step change in the visibility that customers have into their operations,” said Neal Ingram, president of Remote Automation Solutions at the vendor. “This level of information ultimately increases a customer’s profitability by decreasing downtime and increasing production resulting from well-informed operational, maintenance, and management decisions.
