As an “Open Integration” partner, R. STAHL helps facilitate a quicker and more comfortable integration of devices and components sourced from a diverse range of manufacturers into process control systems. Aside from R. STAHL and program initiator Endress+Hauser, seven other renowned companies have also joined the program. The “Open Integration” partners intend to raise the bar for conformity and interoperability tests.
First, they will work with end users to define reference topologies for specific areas. Field devices and system components are then selected to ensure excellent compatibility, and the combination as a whole is validated. This process provides tested, documented recommendations for configurations that support open communication and integration standards (HART, PROFIBUS, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET and FDT, EDD, FDI, respectively) and reliably meet the requirements e.g. regarding explosion protection, availability or redundancy in various kinds of applications.
The program supported by R. STAHL, Endress+Hauser, AUMA Riester, HIMA Paul Hildebrandt, Honeywell Process Solutions, Mitsubishi Electric, Pepperl+Fuchs, Rockwell Automation and Schneider Electric will be officially presented at the SPS IPC Drives 2015 exhibition. Further partners who support open standards are welcome to join “Open Integration”.
