Yokogawa Launches FOUNDATION™ fieldbus Compliant FVX110 Fieldbus Segment Indicator
Yokogawa Electric Corporation announced the launch of the FVX110 Fieldbus Segment Indicator. This new product conforms to the FOUNDATION™ fieldbus industrial digital communications standard.
Field indicators are used in the field to display process variables (pressure, flow rate, temperature, etc.) measured by field instruments such as flowmeters and differential pressure/pressure transmitters. Although field instruments are generally equipped with indicator functions, standalone field indicators are used by service personnel to remotely monitor measurement data from field instruments that are in inaccessible locations, such as the top of a distillation column in an oil refinery.
FOUNDATION fieldbus is a global standard for bidirectional digital communications between control systems and field instruments. A digital communications system conveys far more information than its analog counterpart, displaying process variables and maintenance information from individual field instruments that improves their maintenance and increases the overall safety, reliability, and productivity of an industrial plant. This technology is entering wide use, particularly in new plants that are being constructed outside Japan.
To date, Yokogawa has provided a range of FOUNDATION fieldbus compliant control systems and field instruments. The FVX110 Fieldbus Segment Indicator strengthens this product lineup and meets the needs of our customers for a FOUNDATION fieldbus indicator solution.
