Course Overview

What is meant by Field Bus? The Fieldbus Foundation presents the subsequent definition: “Fieldbus is a digital, two-way, multidrop communication link among intelligent measurement and control devices.” Fieldbus is steadily replacing 4 to 20 mA standard instrumentation signals used to transfer measurement and control data amongst control room and plant floor.

It is one of the numerous local area networks dedicated to industrial automation. Where is Fieldbus used? Modern industries in the 21st century could not survive and endure without information technologies and networks. From the production line to enterprise-level, digital communication assists all economic and social activities with dominant modern technologies. Fieldbus is one such technology and cannot be detached from others. Fieldbus is at the bottom level in the hierarchical order and interacts and exchanges information with higher-level databases.

IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) recommends the following seven definitions standardized by the standard organizations (presented by their trademarks) as international standards of Fieldbus:

  • FOUNDATION Fieldbus and HSE
  • ControlNet
  • P-NET
  • WorldFIP
  • SwiftNet

FOUNDATION Fieldbus, which is one of the seven definitions, is a norm defined by the Fieldbus Foundation. Regrettably, the Fieldbus standards of IEC list the definitions of many regular organizations. In practice, all key makers and users are now partaking in the Fieldbus Foundation, and several products based on the FOUNDATION Fieldbus specifications are developed and marketed. The international standards of Fieldbus have been united by IEC/TC65/SC65C WG6

(Technical Committee 65/Sub-Committee 65C/ Working Group 6/ International Electrotechnical Commission), ISA (The International Society for Measurement & Control) SP50 Committee (which defined 4 to 20 mA analog signals as the standard electronic instrumentation signal), and the Fieldbus Foundation. Recently, the Fieldbus Foundation, a private organization created to promote Fieldbus, is assisting the international unification of Fieldbus standards.

This course from Zoe Talent Solutions covers the progress of the ANSI/ISA-50.02 standard, which is the driving force after the Foundation Fieldbus technology. Other industrial bus systems are likened to Foundation Fieldbus technology. Both Foundation Fieldbus H1 (31kbits/sec) and High-Speed Ethernet (100Mbits/sec) buses are discussed.

The benefits and cost savings of Foundation Fieldbus technology related to 4-20mA field technology are covered, as well as how Foundation Fieldbus segments are organised together and configured.

This Zoe training course focuses on Basics and fundamentals of Field bus, designed to give Introductory Instrument Technicians a general background of the subject matter and provide them with sufficient underpinning knowledge to enter into more specialised equipment training.
