Emerson expands breadth of assets supported within AMS Suite

Expansion of support provides a single asset management system to enable consistent work processes across a variety of assets

AUSTIN, TEXAS (October 16, 2012) —Emerson Process Management has announced expanded asset support in the AMS Suite predictive maintenance software application, providing users a more comprehensive asset management application. Connectivity was established to PROFIBUS PA devices, which expands the list of assets users can integrate into AMS Suite to enable a consistent maintenance approach. In addition, AMS Suite now supports both Electronic Device Description Language (EDDL) and FDT/DTM to provide users with a single application to support the full capabilities of all their devices.

The addition of PROFIBUS PA provides a complete PROFIBUS solution with the DeltaV control system, corresponding to capability already available for PROFIBUS DP devices in DeltaV. PROFIBUS DP and PA support on third party hosts is also available via the Softing FG PROFIBUS family of interfaces. 

Users are easily able to launch HART and Foundation fieldbus Device Type Managers (DTMs) via the DTM Launcher application, provided as a standard part of AMS Device Manager. Support for DTMs is the first step in providing Field Device Integration (FDI)-compliant products within AMS Suite. FDI is the convergence of field device management options into a unified standard to give users a single common solution for managing information for field devices.

Expanded asset support gives users the ability to choose devices based on the best fit for their application regardless of the manufacturer or communication protocol. “Our users need the right information at the right time and want to be able to access that information in a consistent manner,” said Ron Martin, vice president/general manager of Emerson’s Asset Optimization and Lifecycle Care. “We are committed to openness and full support of industry standards to give our users the ultimate freedom in choice, and a consistent way to manage and maintain their assets without compromise.”
