Pepperl+Fuchs' FieldConnex Diagnostic Gateway enhances inter-operation between individual advanced diagnostic modules
Pepperl+Fuchs' FieldConnex Diagnostic Gateway is engineered to enhance inter-operation between the individual advanced diagnostic modules (ADM) of a fieldbus infrastructure and the diagnostic manager in the control room. It is designed to allow information to be exchanged in both directions via Ethernet, enabling additional features such as remote setup of ADMs. Advanced diagnostic modules are engineered to monitor the quality of fieldbus communication for Foundation fieldbus H1 and Profibus PA networks. The combination of the FieldConnex Ethernet Gateway and diagnostic manager is engineered to produce an intuitive monitoring system that provides insight into the fieldbus physical layer directly from the control room.
