Use Enhanced EDDL and FDT

Field Device Manager for Foxboro I/A Series distributed control systems is billed as the industry’s first solution that takes advantage of both the latest Enhanced Electronic Device Description Language (Enhanced EDDL) and FDT technologies.

This combination provides comprehensive lifecycle support to configure, calibrate, commission, diagnose and optimize performance of any vendor’s Foundation Fieldbus (FF) device. Two versions of the I/A Series Field Device Manager are available. The Full Control Room Edition runs on I/A Series system workstations and communicates through the I/A Series FF interface card and Control processors to provide full FDM functionality. The Instrument Workshop Edition runs on a personal computer loaded with I/A Series FDM application software to enable FF devices to be tested offline. Devices can also be set up to integrate with an I/A Series system without requiring any I/A Series equipment.
