FFeasy has been certified to ITK 6.1.2 (Fieldbus Foundation Interoperability Test), PAeasy now has the PROFIBUS PA Profile 3.02. These features allow diagnostics in line with the Namur recommendations NE 107. The new FFeasy version also includes a PID (Proportional–Integral–Derivative controller) function block for implementing “Control in the Field” applications. By moving the control process from the central control unit to the field devices, “Control in the Field” not only reduces response times and data volume on the fieldbus, but also the load on the supervisory control system and the control units.
The two software solutions are based on the same hardware – Softing's Embedded Communication Kit FBK-2 – and use a standard function block application. In this configuration they have already successfully completed all required certification steps and enable fast field device implementation without programming. Users benefit from a smooth certification process for their field devices and a short time-to-market.
