FF Network Integration via Modbus Including Redundancy

With Softing’s FG-200, it is possible to integrate up to four FOUNDATION™ fieldbus (FF) H1 linksinto control systems supporting Modbus. The FG-200 provides redundancy and is suitable for use in hazardous areas. This device features fast access to process data, while making use of FF advantages like reduced cabling, central field device parameterization, comprehensive diagnostics,or intrinsically safe device segments. It is compatible with the R. STAHL bus-Carrier Series 9419 and Fieldbus Power Supply Series 9412 products for easy commissioning.

Easy Commissioning

  • Optional support of R. STAHL bus-Carrier Series 9419 and Fieldbus Power Supply 9412 products (cabling reduced to a minimum)
  • Modbus data import to web server reducing mapping efforts

Asset Management

  • Visitor mode avoiding interference with network behavior
  • Enabling asset management systems (e.g. Emerson’s AMS) and Field Device Tool (FDT) frame applications (e.g. SMART VISION, FieldMate, Field Device Manager, FieldCare, or PACTware)

Device Redundancy

  • Redundancy link enabling device redundancy (D-3 according to FF-593)
  • Automatic mirroring of configuration data
  • Very fast redundancy switch-over

All Necessary Tools Included

  • FF Configuration Tool for configuration of devices and cyclic communication
  • PACTware for device configuration and basic asset management tasks
