Emerson DeltaV is registered as Foundation fieldbus host

April 30, 2009 – Emerson Process Management’s DeltaV digital automation system with AMS Suite: Intelligent Device Manager has passed the Host Profile Registration Process as part of the Fieldbus Foundation’s new Host Registration Program. This registration process tests to ensure robust interoperability and integration between different manufacturers’ host systems and devices.

The Foundation’s testing process benefits both automation suppliers and end users by providing consistency in the multi-vendor FOUNDATION fieldbus environment. The DeltaV system with AMS Device Manager has passed the Host Registration Program (HRP) in which the Foundation conducts functional testing with a test device and specialized Device Descriptions (DDs) and Capabilities Files (CFs). The host profile must support this clear set of required features.

“We congratulate the Fieldbus Foundation for advancing its host testing into a complete registration program, and we are pleased that our DeltaV system with AMS Device Manager is one of the first registered hosts,” said John Berra, chairman of Emerson Process Management. “Open, interoperability continues to be a clear win for our customers, and always part of our practice.”

“The requirement of host registration, and the facilities and resources to carry it out will support further growth of FOUNDATION technology,” continued Berra. “As an example, the new registration includes host applications like our DeltaV system with AMS Suite that use enhanced Electronic Device Description Language (EDDL) to provide exceptional and consistent presentation of real-time, diagnostic, and asset management information as supported by all registered FOUNDATION fieldbus products.”
