Foundation fieldbus right to the point
July 09, 2012 // By Georg Süss
Following the market requirements, BIFFI, a manufacturer of valve actuators for petro-chemical applications decided to implement the Foundation fieldbus H1 communication protocol for its electric actuator ICON2000.
Figure 1: The Foundation fieldbus version of the BIFFI ICON2000 actuator uses the standard hardware design. The Foundation fieldbus module is exchanging data with the ICON2000 basis card as well as the Fieldbus Kit for fieldbus access.
Following the market requirements, BIFFI decided also to implement the Foundation fieldbus H1 communication protocol for the ICON2000 actuator. Here BIFFI was looking for a solution, which could be implemented without big impact within the overall ICON2000 design, which fulfils the individual market requirements and which provides a good performance. After a detailed evaluation BIFFI decided to make use of Softings Fieldbus Kit product for this implementation. This product combines the communication hardware as well as the required firmware for implementing Foundation fieldbus H1 field devices and has proven to ease and shorten the fieldbus implementation process within many field device projects. When following this approach, a device manufacturer does not have to learn and understand the fieldbus know-how in detail, but can concentrate on integrating the Fieldbus Kit into the device application.All news
