To deliver preferred device configuration based on existing and emerging industry standards, Rockwell Automation Inc. and Endress+Hauser (E+H) are working jointly to provide users with more convenient, standards-compliant methods for configuring many process instruments. Rockwell says the cooperation is part of its broader initiative into the hybrid process applications sector.

Together, the companies will expand device connectivity and configuration capabilities by using standard technologies, such as FOUNDATION fieldbus and HART, and by implementing and testing the full capability of E+H's devices with Rockwell's Allen-Bradley Logix controllers and RSLogix 5000 software. In addition, by using E+H's FieldCare software, Rockwell will offer configuration, diagnosis, and integration of a wide range of process devices into the Rockwell Software RSMACC suite of asset management software solutions. This will allow Rockwell to offer integration of process devices using Electronic Device Descriptions (EDD) and the Field Device Tool/Device Type Manager (FDT/DTM) specifications.

Rockwell also plans to join E+H and other companies on the steering committee of the FDT/DTM Joint Interest Group to help advance FDT as a configuration and data management interface for text- and graphically based process device profiles.
