Kevin Jackson, Fisher-Rosemount's U.K. managing director, says his London-based company will have a "complete suite" of FOUNDATION Fieldbus products available in 1998, following "rigorous testing" in production processes. "We're looking forward to starting the real world business of introducing end users to the immense benefits of products on FOUNDATION Fieldbus protocol," he says. "This is undoubtedly the best and only bus for process applications." Mr. Jackson cites "true interoperability" and "Device Description technology" as the two major factors for selecting FOUNDATION Fieldbus. Device Description technology, he says, will allow end-users to "accommodate future innovations with no loss of interoperability." "Unlike regional standards, or those dominated by a single supplier, FOUNDATION Fieldbus is supported by every major process automation supplier in the world," says Mr. Jackson. In Paris, Jean-Pierre Hauet, Cegelec's chief technical officer, and John Berra, president of Fisher-Rosemount, recently announced their companies will integrate Fisher-Rosemount Smart Field devices and AMS software into Cegelec's Alspa 8000 control system.
