Diagnostic gateway serves advanced diagnostic modules

The FieldConnex Diagnostic Gateway helps provide deep insight into fieldbus physical layer directly from the control room.

12/07/2010


Pepperl+Fuchs has introduced the FieldConnex Diagnostic Gateway. This gateway enhances inter-operation between the individual Advanced Diagnostic Modules (ADM) of a fieldbus infrastructure and the Diagnostic Manager in the control room. It does so by allowing information to be exchanged in both directions via Ethernet, enabling additional features such as remote setup of ADMs. Advanced Diagnostic Modules monitor the quality of fieldbus communication for FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 and PROFIBUS PA networks.

“By combining the gateway with the simple and self-configuring setup of the Diagnostic Manager all ADMs are identified automatically and the software configures itself accordingly. This results in fewer configuration errors during installation and setup of the ADM infrastructure, which further adds to efficiency and reliability,” says Brian Traczyk, Product Manager, Pepperl+Fuchs.

The combination of the FieldConnex Ethernet Gateway and Diagnostic Manager results in a highly intuitive monitoring system that provides deep insight into the fieldbus physical layer directly from the control room. With this technology, the physical fieldbus layer becomes fully transparent, and can be managed for maximum availability without the need for detailed expert knowledge.
