PROFIBUS PA & FOUNDATION fieldbus – Field device integration

Single Hardware for implementing FF & PROFIBUS PA technologies into field devices

commKit is a set of hardware, software, and customer specific consulting services. Manufacturers of field devices can quickly and cost-effectively enable devices with a HART or Modbus interface for FOUNDATION Fieldbus and PROFIBUS PA. Instead of elaborately developing a C-application that converts the complex functional block models of FF and PROFIBUS PA to HART commands or Modbus registers of the field device, this mapping is described in a script which is loaded onto the communication interface commModule MBP and is interpreted there.

commKit consists of:

  • the commModule MBP, which is the interface for FF-H1 or PROFIBUS-PA, interprets the device-specific script and communicates with the field device via HART or Modbus
  • the software tool commScripter for generating the device-specific mapping function
  • a customer-specific workshop and supplementary products


Pre-certified Hardware – commModule MBP for Fast Device Certification

  • Piggyback circuit board in compact design (32 mm x 39 mm x 6.5mm)
  • In conformance with FOUNDATION fieldbus requirements the pre-certification leads to fast device certification
  • UART, I2C, SPI data interfaces
  • Ex certification (Atex, IECEx, FM)
  • Conformal coating

Pre-installed Firmware – commScripter Replaces Extensive Programming Efforts

  • FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 and PROFIBUS PA device stacks included
  • Script-driven application for easy access to device parameters via HART and Modbus
  • No time-consuming programming of a C-application required
  • Fast integration of a communication interface according to customer requirements and without programming
  • Enables fast and flexible integration of FF-H1 and PROFIBUS-PA into HART and Modbus devices

One Day Workshop – Project Support by Softing Developers

  • Customer-specific multi-day workshop introducing the commScripter concept
  • Realization of a device image with the device of the customer
  • Supplementary support for device integration and DD creation
