|Build a better Device Description … and Improve Device Performance for HART and FOUNDATION Fieldbus!|
Learn how to improve your devices’ performance by developing Electronic Device Descriptions (EDD) and FDI Device Packages based on the Electronic Device Description Language (IEC 61804) and FDI (IEC-62769).
This advanced course provides instruction where developers learn the step-by-step process for building a Device Description and FDI Device Package that can be used across all EDD or FDI enabled host platforms.
Attendees will receive 12 Professional Development Hours (PDH) to apply towards their continuing education requirements.
Course materials and lecture are provided in English.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Device developers seeking knowledge of:
Today, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and HART use Electronic Device Descriptions to fully describe and model a field device. EDDs, and now FDI Device Packages, enable a Host System to configure, commission and maintain these devices.
The course uses a lecture/demo structure to provide a thorough understanding of the EDD and FDI Device Package using the FDI Package Integrated Development Environment (FDI-IDE). Instructor-led demonstrations will illustrate the process of constructing an EDD and an FDI Device Package, demonstrating the key concepts from each preceding lecture.
BACKGROUND and PREREQUISITES
This course assumes working knowledge of the application layer of HART and/or FOUNDATION Fieldbus. Please complete the below self-assessment quiz for the protocol of the device you intend to use during the workshop.
If you are not comfortable with the results of your self-assessment, we offer protocol specific training:
