Field Device Integration (FDI) for Industrie 4.0 field level

First FDI supported device management tool

Without field devices, ABB's automation equipment could neither sense a real world process nor control it. They are an integral part of Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS). FDI enables users to easily manage field devices throughout their entire life cycle, largely independent from fieldbus protocol technology and with consistent operating concept. ABB's Field Information Manager is the world's first FDI-based device management tool. User benefits: consistent device management across different protocol platforms (HART, Profibus, Foundation Fieldbus), easy, flexible integration into process control systems and engineering environments, and backwards compatibility with existing legacy systems to protect buyers' investments.
