First FDI adopter With its Field Information Manager software, ABB (Zurich, Switzerland; www.abb.com) has become the first host company to adopt new field-device integration (FDI) technology. The FDI platform offered by the FieldComm Group (Austin, Tex., www.fieldcommgroup.com) brings together for the first time the HART and Fieldbus Foundation communication protocols to create industry-wide device-communication consistency. ABB Field Information Manager is designed for use on touchscreen tablets, and features pre-loaded device packages, customizable parameters and an archive for existing devices, so all equipment information is stored within the platform. It can be installed in just three minutes, says ABB. Furthermore, work processes that previously required multiple file downloads are now bundled so that only one file is required.
