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.
