FDI makes life easier. You have no longer the burden of providing duplicating solutions (FDT/DTM and EDDL). No extra development cost and support. Now only one single solution, the FDI.
FDI combines the best of FDT/DTM and EDDL and when you have implemented
FDI capabilities, you can serve HART, Profibus as well as Foundation networks
with no extra effort.
FDI means reduced development costs for device and system suppliers in the Process Automation industry.
That is really good news for both device manufacturers and process automation
They have struggled with different forms of device integration
technology over the years. The FDI, however, aims to rationalize the worlds’
leading technologies (FDT/DTM, EDDL) for managing information from intelligent
field devices. FDI will allow users to focus on how to best use their
applications instead of worrying about how everything will connect together.
FDI Advantages are:
Platform and operating system independent
Host system independent
Compatible with existing EDDL and FDT/DTM technologies
An international standard
Provide access to the full capability of the field device, from simple to complex devices
