A Quick and Easy Way to Connect to FOUNDATION fieldbus using Emerson’s USB Fieldbus Interface


Published on

Presented by Emerson's Alan Dewey at the 2011 Emerson Exchange in Nashville, TN USA.

Abstract: Emerson has recently introduced a quick and easy way for users to connect directly to a FOUNDATION fieldbus segment with their portable laptop or notebook computer. Using Emerson's newly available USB Fieldbus Interface, users can easily connect their laptop or PC to a fieldbus network either in the field or on the bench. This enables users to experience the benefits of applications such as AMS Device Manager without having to use the control system. This workshop will highlight the capabilities of this useful new device and provide a live demonstration of how it can be used.
