Emerson Process Management (www.emersonprocess.com) and Siemens Automation and Drives (www.siemens.com) reached an agreement to exchange technology and provide each other with engineering support. As part of the deal, Siemens will be adding interfaces to its SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system and Process Device Manager (PDM) tool to support FOUNDATION Fieldbus (FF) standards in addition to the PROFIBUS and HART standards they support today. Emerson will be similarly expanding its Delta V and Ovation control systems, as well as its AMS Suite, with an interface for PROFIBUS DP and PROFINET in addition to the FOUNDATION Fieldbus and HART standards the systems currently support.
