Courtesy: Emerson Process ManagementEmerson Process Management and Softing announced that Softing's Linking Device and Gateway FG-110-FF has been successfully integrated and tested with Emerson's AMS Suite predictive maintenance software application to connect to any Foundation Fieldbus network, providing users with the ultimate flexibility to use AMS Device Manager for online diagnostics and alerts regardless of their host system vendor.

AMS Suite uses predictive intelligence to improve the availability and performance of key production assets, including mechanical equipment, electrical systems, process equipment, instruments, and valves. This integrated family of best-in-class diagnostic software applications enables users to detect plant equipment problems before they occur. From plant management, operations, or maintenance and reliability, AMS Suite gives users the information they need to make informed decisions.

Softing's Linking Device and Gateway FG-110-FF is designed for plant operators and system integrators in process environments. It provides connectivity to up to four Foundation fieldbus H1 segments with as many as 64 field devices. The product includes a Windows-based configuration software package for Foundation fieldbus that enables field device linking and configuration. Standard Ethernet and a serial Modbus interface provide connectivity to systems without fieldbus capability. Host protocols such as Modbus RTU, Modbus/TCP, or HSE enable the data-exchange between the FG-110-FF and other host applications.
