Emerson has announced that its device management software is the first host software to be fully registered by FieldComm Group to support the Field Device Integration (FDI) standard.

This is a further step in Emerson’s ongoing efforts to reduce the time and effort spent installing and configuring the field devices plants rely on to achieve their digital transformation goals, the company says.

Full FDI registration is important to avoid having a patchwork of systems and devices that only support individual elements of FDI but still require extensive integration effort, it adds.

Because manufacturers can pick and choose individual FDI features to support, some device management applications will likely not contain every feature a plant requires.

The company says it worked side by side with FieldComm Group for nearly two years to enable Emerson AMS Device Manager to pass the group’s rigorous testing process for registration, which requires all features to be supported by the software.
