Softing’s smartLink HW-DP V1.01 enables access to process, asset, and diagnostic data from PROFIBUS devices and HART devices connected to PROFIBUS remote I/Os. Furthermore, it allows for secure data export to any system inside and outside the company's own network.
Open, standardized interfaces
Users in the process industry who want to adapt their communication architecture to modern IoT use cases can integrate smartLink into existing plants in a simple and cost-effective manner. The data which is relevant for optimization processes is made available via open, standardized interfaces such as HART IP and FDT for subsequent applications. This means that any HART IP clients, such as Emerson's AMS Device Manager or the Android app DevComDroid, can be used to set parameters for, monitor and evaluate field devices via these open communication standards.
