October 2, 2012 - Yokogawa integrated Softing's FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 USB interface with its FieldMate application. The tight integration of Softing's USB interface is an ideal solution for users of today's notebooks without PC Card slots.

These tasks are streamlined by FieldMate’s intuitive operation and integrated environment, which is independent from communication protocols and device vendors. “Yokogawa is providing our customers with the freedom to implement a system that meets their needs today, and grow and expand to meet their needs tomorrow.
