Mapping of Fieldbus Components to WWW-Based Management Solutions

  • Martin Wollschlaeger


The seamless integration of fieldbusses into enterprise wide communication systems enables a network centric approach to fieldbus components’ management. This requires the mapping of fieldbus components and their functionality to WWW-related management solutions. Therefore different strategies are suitable. Developments in software technology allow the introduction of new concepts for management tasks of fieldbus based components. Besides the software oriented tasks, there are new description techniques that can be used in fieldbus systems. WWW-related management solutions for different systems are described in this paper.
