Enabling the use of Field Device Tool technology (FDT), HBM is now offering a certified Device Type Manager (DTM) for its digiCLIP measuring amplifier models, which has been certified by the Conformance Office of the FDT Joint Interest Group.
The digiCLIP amplifiers use carrier frequency measurement technology and are suited to the reliable measurement parameters such as force, strain, torque and pressure in industrial automation applications without noise.
The Field Device Tool technology (FDT) ensures standardised parameterisation of field devices from different manufacturers. It is a function and interface definition that simplifies engineering processes in automation technology. The Device Type Manager (DTM) is at the core of this technology and is made available by the manufacturers of field devices as a standardised driver.
