Enabling Digitialization with FDI, NAMUR Open Architecture, and OPC UA

Digitalization

Abstract: dopting open systems is a practical way to take enable digitialization of multi-vendor technologies often found in today's digital-based Industrial Control systems.

Instruments and host systems that incorporate FieldComm Group’s FDI (Field Device Integration) technology standard help simplify the path to digital transformation for the end user. FDI is the evolution of the tried-and-tested EDDL and FDT technology which provides practical benefits for Device and Control System Manufacturers, and the facility owner-operators. FDI is backwards-compatible with the installed base of millions of HART, Foundation Fieldbus and Profibus Devices. FDI Architecture is also forward-focused on the Digital Transformation/interface between the OT/IT worlds, and is ready for digitilization practices suggested by IIoT/Industrie4.0.

In this presentation we will review NAMUR’s open architecture concept, it’s relationship to FDI technology, and the OPC UA standard. In total these standards and concepts provide a pathway to simplify end to end digitalization of the plant from the field device level to the cloud.
