Det-Tronics joins the FDT Group

09 October 2012

Detector Electronics Corporation (Det-Tronics), a producer of industrial flame detection, gas detection, and hazard mitigation systems, has become a member in the FDT Group and has launched Device Type Manager (DTM) files for its flame and gas detection products.

FDT/DTM standardises the communications and configuration interface between industrial field devices including gas and flame detectors, and host systems such as an asset management system being utilised at a facility. It enables any industrial field device to be configured, operated, and maintained through a standardized user interface, regardless of supplier, type, or communication protocol. In addition, FDT-enabled devices share configuration, status and diagnostic information, resulting in reduced costs over the lifecycle of a facility.

Commenting on the move, Charles Hoff, product at Det-Tronics, said: “We have already seen quick adoption of the HART communication protocol in flame and gas detection, and FDT/DTM is a natural fit for continued success in petrochemical, oil, and gas applications.”
