Customer Testimonials

„Today with the help of Softing´s PBpro USB interface I demonstrated how quick and easy it is to configure PROFIBUS PA transpmitters via FDT Group DTM Technology and integrated them to our ICSS 800xA. The customers left our lab confident about their Investment in PROFIBUS PA Technology and learned to leverage the ICSS asset management capabilities to improve maintenance efficiency“
