PROFIBUS goes Microsoft - Herstellerunabhängige Integration von Feldgeräten in Engineeringsysteme
With the integration of fieldbusses into existing systems are some tasks, that still wait for completion. This is valid for fieldbusses in general. The following article will show this at the example of PROFIBUS in special. The integration of field instrument configuration-tools with engineering interfaces, that could be used by all vendors in the plant, is very important. This is especially true for large and heterogeneous plants in the process industry. To resolve this task, the control systems and instrument vendors founded a working group in the ZVEI (German manufacturers association) to develop in close contract with the PNO (PROFIBUS Users organization) a vendor neutral solution. Main target of this activities is the specification of a software-interface. This interface should easy to implement for the field instrument manufacturers as well as for the DCS vendors.
