Hardware Platform for implementing FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 (FF) and PROFIBUS PA instruments

Fast Implementation of FF and PROFIBUS PA Field Devices

commModule MBP is designed for a fast and cost-effective fieldbus implementation in process field devices. A single hardware platform allows implementing FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 (FF) and PROFIBUS PA instruments. The small footprint as well as the universal hardware are the main arguments in favor of commModule MBP. Easy integration into HART and Modbus devices by script-controlled mapping to HART or Modbus commands using commScripter tool.


Fast Implementation

  • Fast implementation path to FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 or PROFIBUS PA instruments
  • Fully tested protocol stack, proven in ten thousands of field devices
  • Only hardware integration to be implemented
  • Script-controlled mapping of fieldbus function block application to device specific HART or Modbus commands, no need for C programming (using commScripter tool)

Cost Reduction by Universal Piggyback Solution

  • Small footprint for use in majority of process equipment
  • No expensive development of fieldbus hardware
  • No stack porting, no application programming
  • Components placed on one side only, automatic assembly on motherboard possible
  • Potted and non-potted version for optimized ex design
  • ATEX and IECEx approval for use in explosive environments
  • Stack license included, FF or PA functionality selected by hardware pin

Smart way to upgrade HART and Modbus Devices for Fieldbus and PROFIBUS

  • Script-controlled mapping of fieldbus function block application to device specific HART or Modbus commands
  • No need for C programming
  • commScripter tool checks script and creates mapping table
  • Off-the-shelf commModules are customized by downloading mapping table
