|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 comprehensive, advanced course provides a one-on-one instructional environment where developers learn the step-by-step process for building a Device Description and FDI Package that can be used across all EDD or FDI enabled host platforms.
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 Packages, enable a Host System to configure, commission and maintain these devices.
During design and development of devices, EDDs and FDI Packages provide a cost-effective review of the device Application Layer for a given implementation.
The course uses a lecture/lab structure to provide a thorough understanding of the EDD and FDI Package. By the end of the course, all attendees develop an EDD and FDI Package using the FDI Package Integrated Development Environment (IDE). During lab time, the instructor provides one-on-one assistance to the attendee as they develop their EDD and FDI Package. All attendees receive the tools needed for real-world EDD and FDI Package development, testing and registration with the FieldComm Group.
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:
