Our Process Instrumentation Networks provide communication between process instruments and the process control system. We offer integrated PlantPAx™ Process Automation System support for instruments on HART and the FOUNDATION™ fieldbus. Our Encompass™ Partners provide expanded support for Profibus PA, as well as Modbus and other networks. Endress+Hauser and other partners now offer process instruments that connect to EtherNet/IP™ networks to support this growing trend.
Our PlantPAx™ process automation system provides a single plant-wide control and information platform while the FOUNDATION Fieldbus standard provides the ability to distribute the control architecture throughout your facility. Combine these two powerful technologies to enable integrated, seamless distribution of data and the execution of process control with devices from multiple sources. The 1788-EN2FFR and the 1788-CN2FFR modules provide a fully integrated and easy to use solution for adding FOUNDATION Fieldbus to any ControlLogix™ platform. These modules provide a direct link from EtherNet/IP™ or ControlNet™, to the FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 device level network.
The HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) protocol is a widely accepted standard for digitally enhanced communication with instrumentation within the process industries.
