​Honeywell Field Device Manager (FDM) simplifies maintenance tasks, saves time and provides the flexibility and scalability to perform complete device configuration and management tasks in the plant environment through smart plant instrumentation. 

Read how one of Field Device Manager users won 2011 HART Plant of the Year. Also, find out more about using HART with asset management systems.

​FDM is a centralized asset management system for remote configuration and maintenance of smart field devices based on HART, PROFIBUS and Fieldbus Foundation protocols. FDM is integral to supporting Experion-connected devices, yet it easily handles non-Experion networks. FDM supports a large number of devices through FDM clients connected to multiple, distributed FDM servers. With complete command and control of all instruments through the plant, FDM saves time by greatly reducing the number of field trips that would otherwise be required. By simplifying and reducing effort normally involved in plant debugging, FDM improves overall asset effectiveness.

​FDM conforms to industry open standards for HART, Fieldbus and PROFIBUS and does not require additional files or programming to support devices or access device-specific features. This includes unmodified use of both Device Description (DD) and Device Type Manager (DTM) technologies as provided by the device vendors. FDM uses a unique remote communication infrastructure that allows widely distributed devices to communicate over a local or wide area network, providing anytime, anywhere access in the plant environment. FDM requires no point engineering or database building. Once the communication networks are configured, FDM automatically detects smart devices and adds them to the database. This saves considerable time for commissioning, troubleshooting or just performing routine maintenance. 

Smart plant instrumentation requires sophisticated tools to configure, maintain, troubleshoot, and diagnose. In a large plant spread out over a considerable physical area, it is imperative that this tool will cover the distance, perform the right job, simplify the work, and save time. FDM is a versatile, accessible and predictable plant instrumentation solution that simplifies smart instrument maintenance.​
