HART/ Fieldbus Solutions

Bring out the real potential of smart field devices!

  1. System configuration independent of DCS vendor/type/model
  2. Achieve excellent throughput against HART multiplexer communication
  3. Helpful tools for checking/testing work efficiency before plant startup
  4. Sophisticated valve management and diagnostics functions

1.System configuration independent of DCS vendor/type/model

System configuration independent of DCS vendor/type/model

InnovativeField Organizer (IFO) can work in combination with other vendors' DCS and PLCs by using HNU (HART Network Unit), which is an external HART communication interface.


2.Achieve excellent throughput against HART multiplexer communication

HNU is an external HART communication interface which can connect to all HART devices simultaneously, all the time. HNU achieves full-time connection to all HART devices using the one by one HART communication mechanism.

Thus HNU achieves roughly the same throughput as FOUNDATION Fieldbus in actual operation. Moreover, HNU achieves far greater speed than general HART communication that uses a multiplexer mechanism such as a general HART interface or other DCS HART I/O.

Achieve excellent throughput against HART multiplexer communication

3.Helpful tools for checking/testing work efficiency before plant startup

By using the InnovativeField Organizer Device Management System, the IFO user can dramatically improve the efficiency of tasks such as those below.

  • Device alive check
  • Loop check
  • Control valve testing
  • DCS sequence program testing
  • DCS interlock program testing
  • Bulk report generation for latest parameters of field devices after adjustment or configuration

4.Sophisticated valve management and diagnostics functions

Our control valve maintenance support system, PLUG-IN Valstaff, is a software package that draws upon Azbil's experience for 80 years as a control valve manufacturer. It supports the decision-making necessary for control valve maintenance, and promotes efficiency of maintenance operations.

Sophisticated valve management and diagnostics functions

PLUG-IN Valstaff works on the following device management systems.

  • Azbil : InnovativeField Organizer (IFO)
  • Yokogawa : Plant Resource Manager (PRM)
