FDI/FDT DTM

Field device integration plays an important role in the world of industrial automation to ensure easy and efficient configuration, calibration, diagnostics and monitoring of the low level industrial assets like flowmeter, valve, actuator, etc. EDDL, FDT/DTM™ (Field Device Tool/Device Type Manager) and FDI (Field Device Integration) are three existing device integration enablers in the process and discrete industry.

Increasingly complex and sophisticated field devices have led to device-specific software applications that access and analyze information about the device and its condition. With that focus in mind, FDT/DTM technology is a communication framework that facilitates the integration of various devices like sensors, actuators, and I/O devices. Utthunga’s FDI/FDT suite consisting of the uFDI-DTM and uDD-DTM converters are built upon this technology and assists automation suppliers by dramatically reducing their time-to-market and guaranteed adherence to the standard. Implementing uFDI-DTM and uDD-DTM converters in your infrastructure is easy and it supports the most widely used communication DTM protocols such as HART, Modbus, PROFIBUS, Foundation Fieldbus, etc.

Why FDI/DD to DTM converter is required for Industries?

Consistent and easy commissioning of field devices is an absolute necessity otherwise the complicated settings and setup can easily wear out even some experienced service personnel. Even though the standards like EDDL, DTM, and FDI serve similar functions, they do have some differences. Device and host vendors invest in these complimentary technologies to have a wider reach and appeal. Conversion tool such as Utthunga’s uDD-DTM and uFDI-DTM is beneficial for vendors as they can generate FDT 1.2/2.0 FDT device compliant DTMs using the existing DD or FDI Device Packages.
