Emerson’s device management software, AMS Device Manager, is the first host software to be fully registered by FieldComm Group® to support the Field Device Integration (FDI) standard. FDI registration will reduce the need for plants to support two different technologies to integrate and maintain field devices. Full FDI registration is important to avoid having a patchwork of systems and devices that only support individual elements of FDI but still require extensive integration effort. The AMS Device Manager provides a single application for predictive diagnostics, documentation, calibration management, and device configurations. It allows connectivity for up to 30,000 devices under a single database to reduce unplanned shutdowns, increase productivity, and improve safety.
