The Fieldbus Foundation (FF) announced June 12 that seven fieldbus devices have successfully completed its device registration process. The seven products passed interoperability tests and other requirements, and are now authorized to bear the Foundation's registration mark. FF issued registration certificates for: Rosemount Inc., Model 3244 Temperature Transmitter and Model 3051 Pressure Transmitter; Smar Equipamentos Industriais Ltda., Model LD 302 Pressure Transmitter, Model TT302 Temperature Transmitter and Model IF302 4-20 mA to Fieldbus Converter; and Yokogawa Electric Corporation, Model EJA Pressure Transmitter and Model YF Flowmeter. The registration of fieldbus products "signifies the beginning of a new, dynamic era in plant automation," says John Pittman, FF's president. FF proceeded with the registration process only after devices from multiple suppliers, containing communications "stacks" from different developers, passed the interoperability tests and met registration requirements. FF also released Version 2.1 of its Interoperability Test Kit on June 3. For more information, visit www.fieldbus.org .
