By Control Engineering Staff March 7, 2001

Austin, Tex. -FOUNDATION fieldbus High-Speed Ethernet (HSE), at 100 Mbit/sec, was released in final specifications (1.0) in March 2000; a testing kit for HSE linking devices-to subsystems of H1 (31.25 kbit/sec) devices-was available December 2000. HSE, Type 5 of the IEC 61158 Fieldbus standard, includes Publisher/Subscriber services. HSE/H1 aim to integrate sensor, process/discrete control, and hybrid/batch control subsystems with supervisory, ERP, and other applications. Fieldbus Foundation
