FOUNDATION fieldbus is an all-digital, two-way communications technology for plant instrumentation
FOUNDATION fieldbus offers better operations and maintenance through expanded access to diagnostics and other digital device information, as well as other benefits such as lower engineering and installation costs and optional device-based control.
Unlike other digital protocols, FOUNDATION fieldbus was developed specifically to meet the needs of process industries, is a worldwide standard, and is open to multiple suppliers and open to innovation.
Emerson was a leader in developing FOUNDATION fieldbus, which is a key enabling technology in PlantWeb architecture. Our proven fieldbus-based devices, systems, and software all work together to deliver the full benefits of this technology. And thanks to the Human Centered Design behind our Device Dashboards, putting fieldbus to work is easier than ever.
PlantWeb University provides a better understanding of how fieldbus delivers the benefits you've heard so much about. You can find the fieldbus-related courses here.
