New book about fieldbus technology

A new book from the Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society presents information on how to apply fieldbus technology for process control. “Fieldbuses for Process Control” provides information on all phases of the system from engineering to device and strategy configuration, installation, commissioning, troubleshooting, operation, and maintenance. This book includes information on the capabilities and benefits brought by this new technology. It covers savings such as lower cost of purchase, construction savings, maintenance savings, and operation savings. The book also provides information about the three leading process fieldbus technologies: Hart, Foundation Fieldbus, and Profibus-PA. The author, Jonas Berge, explains how these fieldbus technologies work, and he exposes the similarities, differences, and capabilities of each fieldbus technology. The book also covers both field-level and the Ethernet-based host-level networking and addresses concerns and solutions for interoperability, integration, and migration, as well as availability and safety. “Fieldbuses for process control” is available from American Technical Publishers for GBP 84.00.
