Free Windows-Based Software Tool for FOUNDATION™ fieldbus Network and Device Configuration
The FF-CONF is a stand-alone, Windows-based software package for offline configuration of FOUNDATION fieldbus (FF) networks and field devices. It is compatible with the Linking Device functionality of the Softing gateways FG-100 FF/HSE, FG-110 FF, and FIM-110 FF, and supports standard Device Description (DD) files.
Configuration Software with Comprehensive Functionality
The FF-CONF is a Windows-based configuration tool, providing the functionality to define all the required FF network and device settings. This includes the definition
Support of Standard Device Description Files
The FF-CONF configuration software makes use of standard Device Description files, as available from the field device manufacturers or the Fieldbus Foundation. Any DD files of version V4.x or V5.x can be used. For configuration purposes this eliminates the need to obtain and install any proprietary Device Description files as required for individual host certifications.
Software Not Requiring License Key
The FF-CONF can be used without requiring a specific license key. The software tool is included in the scope of delivery of the Softing gateway and Linking Device products FG-100 FF/HSE, FG-110 FF, and FIM-110 FF or can be downloaded from the Softing website free of charge.

FDT Support for Softing’s Linking Devices and the Fieldbus Interface Module
The FOUNDATION fieldbus (FF) HSE Device Type Manager (DTM) allows Field Device Tool (FDT) conformant frame applications to access FF H1 networks via Softing’s Linking Devices or the Fieldbus Interface Module. It provides a flexible and mobile solution for easy parameterization and diagnostics of individual FF H1 field devices.
Comprehensive Range of Use with Standard FDT Frame Applications
The FF HSE DTM consists of an FF Linking Device Gateway DTM and an FF HSE Communication DTM and provides seamless integration of standard FDT frame applications like SMART VISION, FieldMate, Field Device Manager, FieldCare or PACTware with Softing’s Linking Devices or the Fieldbus Interface Module. It allows transparent access to field devices supporting the FDT standard, which are connected to the referring FF H1 networks. Comprehensive FDT / DTM functionality is supported, including easy parameterization and diagnostics.
Fast Commissioning of FF H1 Networks
The FF HSE DTM is designed to assist in the commissioning of FF installations using a universal FDT based software tool. It provides a modern user interface including tooltips and online help. If the Device DTMs of the individual FF H1 field devices connected to the Linking Devices or the Fieldbus Interface Module are available at the PC together with the FDT frame application, these field devices are automatically identified and entered into the live list together with all included device and manufacturer information. Furthermore, the FF HSE DTM provides a logging mechanism for error and trace messages, connection monitoring, and supports the FDT upload and download functionality.
Easy Licensing with Linking Devices and Fieldbus Interface Module
The FF HSE DTM can be used without requiring a specific license key. It is included in the scope of delivery of the Softing gateway and Linking Device products FG-100 FF/HSE, FG-110 FF, and FIM-110 FF. Thus the associated license also includes the FF HSE DTM license and no additional license needs to be obtained to make use of the individual FF HSE DTM advantages. Alternatively, the FF HSE DTM can be downloaded from the Softing website free of charge.
