Field Device Tools gain acceptance

The SAC (Standardization Administration of the People’s Republic of China) has announced the official approval of the FDT [Field Device Tool] standard as the China National Standard GB/T 29618, clearing the way for further, broad deployment of the FDT standard throughout China in all industrial and governmental control projects.

The FDT standard is already approved as the IEC 62453 standard as well as the ISA/ANSI 102 standard. This latest approval as the China GB/T 29618 standard now enables multinational companies to deploy the standard in their automation platform on a global scope with assurance of acceptance by all major governing standards bodies.

The FDT standard is freely available for use by any industry supplier or end user without license or royalty. The FDT standard is maintained and advanced by the member companies of the international non-profit FDT Group based in Jodoigne, Belgium.
