Every field device that is to be integrated into an FDT environment requires a corresponding DTM. However, the implementation of a DTM is generally device-specific and expensive.

In many cases, however, EDDs (Electronic Device Description) exist, in particular for PROFIBUS, HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus devices. With our generic DTM, the isEDDview DTM, EDDs can be used directly under FDT. Field devices can thus be integrated into any FDT environment.

With the isEDD View DTM we offer you a generic DTM that can be adapted to your requirements. The isEDD View DTM reads device descriptions from field devices, interprets them and provides FDT device types as device DTMs on this basis. The entry points standardized for EDD hosts are offered as device-specific FDT functions of the FDT frame application and can be used for the configuration and operation of the field device.
