Pepperl and Fuchs has announced that its Fieldconnex advanced diagnostic module (ADM) has been fully integrated into Emerson Process Management’s Plantweb AMS suite.

The ADM provides real-time monitoring of Foundation Fieldbus physical layer.

The integration widens the scope of the Plantweb digital plant architecture, enabling AMS suite users to automatically commission fieldbus segments and effectively monitor and troubleshoot the fieldbus physical layer.

The ADM’s built-in segment monitor displays communication data for the entire segment, and individual devices.

Each value is clearly classified as excellent, good or out of spec.

Reports, alarm lists, and historical data can be exported for detailed analysis.

The Diagnostic Manager even initiates alarm messages with appropriate resolution suggestions.

Within Plantweb AMS suite, all information can be displayed on the maintenance workstations.

The ADM’s monitoring capabilities deliver information into AMS suite user interface, indicating changes in the fieldbus physical layer before they become critical.

Should troubleshooting be necessary, the ADM includes a fieldbus oscilloscope for in-depth analysis of network communication.

Fieldbus-specific triggers allow tracing of complex or intermittent errors that would otherwise be hard to find.
