Experion PKS integrates FOUNDATION
Fieldbus transparently into a single, unified database using Control Builder (CB), a common engineering tool for creating and configuring process control strategies. CB enables full device configuration as well as instant integration through direct use of vendor-supplied device description files. In addition, it can be used for commissioning and decommissioning field devices, firmware downloads, and device replacement, maintenance and troubleshooting.
All the valuable information inherent in every Fieldbus device is easily integrated into operational displays to optimize plant operations and reduce process downtime. Standard detail displays are provided at no charge, allowing for faster loop commissioning and full support for maintenance activities.
Experion PKS also features device replacement directly from the operator station to securely replace a failed or troublesome device without requiring engineering support.
