Field devices which have to be integrated into FDT environments do need a DTM. Not all devices provide those DTMs but often, especially for PROFIBUS and HART devices, an Electronic Device Description already exists. An EDD interpreter DTM provides such EDD host system as a DeviceDTM for the interpretation of Electronic Device Descriptions. It is compliant to the FDT version 1.2 and offers following features:

  • EDD interpreter DTM for EDD/DD PROFIBUS PA and DP/V1 device descriptions
  • EDD interpreter DTM for EDD/DD HART device descriptions
  • EDD interpreter DTM for EDD/DD FOUNDATION Fieldbus device descriptions
  • Graphic front end for EDDs
  • Table and tree view
  • Methods calls, built-ins
  • Online-/Offline-configuration

The following FDT Interfaces are supported:

  • IPersistPropertyBag, IDtm, IDtmInformation, IDtmActiveXInformation, IDtmParameter
  • IFdtEvents, IDtmOnlineParameter,
  • IDtmChannel, IDtmApplication, IDtmImportExport, IFdtCommunicationEvents.

The software isEDDview DTM requires the installation of a PROFIBUS and/or HART interface and an accessory CommDTM of any interface vendor.
