Practical Use and Understanding of Foundation FieldBus for Engineers and Technicians
Foundation Fieldbus (FF) is one of the leading fieldbuses in Process Automation. Its sophisticated architecture is tailor-made for today's automation systems. Its unique set of features allows for the implementation of true distributed control. The Foundation Fieldbus includes an H1 protocol based on IEC 61158-2 physical layer specification as well as an HSE standard for communication over Ethernet/IP. These features and the possibility for distributed control make the Foundation Fieldbus unique for process control application.
The main aim of this workshop is to give you a clear understanding of Foundation Fieldbus and to enable you to specify and design systems using this technology. There has been a surge of interest in Foundation Fieldbus due to the tremendous benefits it provides. This workshop aims to break down the terminology and jargon barriers and to explain Foundation Fieldbus in a simple and understandable way; thus enabling you to apply the technology effectively.
