  1. Open access to device intelligence

  2. Why FDT? Are you confused? What IS it? Even heard about it? Wonder what it’s all about? Why do you need it? Let’s hear about the real needs of a plant manager… Listen to what HE has to say…

  3. My Plant • Runs continuously • With many different field devices • On several different networks • With more than one control system…

  4. when a problem occurs • No matter who responds • No matter where their mind is at the time • No matter how much their experience with THIS problem …or THIS equipment • No matter how rarely it happens…

  5. my people QUICKLY need to • Always see information the same way • Know what is wrong • Know how to act • Be consistent …WHOEVER responds …WHENEVER they respond…

  6. with a SINGLE tool • That works with any field equipment • From any supplier • That reduces device commissioning time • Supplies meaningful Asset Management information • On ALL my EXISTING systems

  7. Your Solution… FDT is an “open” standard for device integration that: • Is viewed on any windows workstation • Provides consistent graphic presentations • Is supplier, system, & protocol independent easily goes into your workstations►

  8. FDT based tools • Support Consistent workstation views

  9. FDT based tools • Compatible with existing & future automation equipment • Upgrade all your existing networks • Manage multiple generations of devices over life of plant • Graphical support for start up and commissioning • Intuitive HELP functions for troubleshooting • Monitor efficiency during operations • Same look & feel on every system • Best advanced diagnostics …specific know-how …from each device supplier …who can easily upgrade you with new information

  10. FDT connects with 12 different protocols • INTERBUS • IO Link • MODBUS SL/TCP • PROFIBUS DP/PA • PROFINET I/O • CIP Annex configuration • AS-interface • ContolNet • DeviceNet • EtherNet/IP • FOUNDATION Fieldbus • High Speed Ethernet • HART

  11. Endorsed by 66 users & suppliers and growing!

  12. VALIDATED user results show • 40% reduction in commissioning time Note! Commissioning is usually the CRITICAL path of the project! (Dow 9/07) • 80% reduction for last minute engineering modifications (Dow 9/07) • Much faster resolution of typical instrument problems during startup (example false echo’s with radar level meters) • 60-70% reduction in scheduled plant downtime (Clariant GmbH 9/06) Feedback from commissioning team: “Instrument Technicians LOVE this tool!”

  13. Survive change • Your markets are in continual change • Your staff will not be there forever • Your suppliers will change • Your plant will change • Don’t let your productivity change… …use the one tool that will help you survive change

  14. Discover how YOU can • Control time and costs for – Commissioning – Modifications – Troubleshooting • Be consistent with – Operations – Maintenance – Service • Provide more meaningful, useful information to your Asset Management program

  15. EASILY Integrate… • ANY field DEVICE • From ANY supplier • Into ANY host system • Using ANY protocol • With FULL device functionality Your solution is: Find out more! See our website [www.fdtgroup.org]
