Easing integration of Foundation and Profibus PA field devices

27 January 2015

The latest version of FFeasy and PAeasy, from Softing Industrial Automation, offers combined hardware and software solutions for the direct and rapid implementation of Foundation fieldbus H1 and PROFIBUS PA field devices.

FFeasy has been certified to ITK 6.1.2 (Fieldbus Foundation Interoperability Test), PAeasy now has the PROFIBUS PA Profile 3.02. These features allow diagnostics in line with the NAMUR recommendations NE 107. 

The new FFeasy version also includes a PID function block for implementing ‘control in the field’ applications. By moving the control process from the central control unit to the field devices, this can not only reduce response times and data volume on the fieldbus, but also the load on the supervisory control system and the control units. 


The two software solutions are based on the same hardware – Softing's Embedded Communication Kit FBK-2 – and use a standard function block application.
