FDI – Available Now!

he Field Device Integration (FDI) standard was developed through a collaboration between major industry foundations and suppliers to bring standardization to the packaging and distribution of all software and tools necessary to integrate a field device with a host system.

In recent years, field devices and the systems they connect to have become more powerful, as has the software required to maximize value creation from their use. Staying current with changing operating systems, asset management system versions, user interfaces and Device Description (DD) releases is time-consuming and error prone. To get around this, FDI standardizes their interfaces so host systems need only one FDI Device Package per device type per protocol to successfully integrate each device.

As an emerging industry standard, FDI is becoming readily available in the market. This important integration technology will bring standardization to device installation and configuration, with a single FDI Device Package containing all drivers, documentation and user interfaces to manage a field device.
