Interoperability in control systems

By Chemical Engineering |

Samson AG (Frankfurt, Germany; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6891-545) has started to implement the Vigilant Integration Partners (VIP) initiative, having entered a formal cooperation agreement with Yokogawa Electric Corp. (Tokyo; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6891-546). The VIP initiative is an open and non-exclusive mutual technology cooperation program to implement standard-based interoperability in control systems, sensors and control valves. The initiative assures smooth integration and interoperability between Samson’s field devices with Yokogawa’s Centum series production control. Interoperability is said to be guaranteed by full support of both field-device tool (FDT) and electronic-device-description language (EDDL).
