The Power of Process Automation Protocols
In today’s era of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), process automation protocols play a crucial part in digital transformation. They provide the means to connect and integrate digital information, using intelligent field devices to reduce waste, improve safety and increase operational efficiency. The protocols are quite literally the foundation that the IIoT is built upon.
The possibilities of smart connected devices and software applications within an industrial plant are endless, and once a connection across the Internet is also provided, this value can be extracted to varying levels within the organization. FieldComm Group technologies have been driving digital transformation for more than two decades. FOUNDATION Fieldbus™, HART™ and WirelessHART™ devices can be the basis for digitization supporting IIoT initiatives.
