TWINSBURG, OH — Effective March 2008, Pepperl+Fuchs has eliminated licensing fees for its Interface Technology, Level Control, Corrosion Detection, FieldConnex and HART Multiplexer Device Type Managers (DTM). These DTMs are now ready-to-use and fully-featured upon download from www.pepperl-fuchs.com, enabling DTM projects to be initiated faster than ever. Pepperl+Fuchs PACTware™ FDT framework is also freely available. Licensing fees have not been eliminated for Advanced Diagnostic and Remote I/O DTMs.
When it comes to Field Device Tools (FDT) and Device Type Managers (DTM), Pepperl+Fuchs has been among the major driving forces to develop and establish this technology on the market. As a result, DTM technology has become a worldwide standard to allow fast and easy configuration of even complex field devices prior to their operation.
