Integration of devices through the Device Integration Center ensures interoperability with the 800xA system.
Goal of the Device Integration Center is to provide libraries of pre-configured field device typicals in ABB systems with proven interoperability by online tests with the device.
The Device Libraries are extended continuously with new device types. Driven through customer project demands and market requirements, individual device types are added to the existing libraries for the communication protocols HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, and PROFIBUS. To assure interoperability of the system with the device and the related components, the new device type object is tested against the real device by the Device Integration Center.
On top of pure interoperability testing value add functionality, e.g. for Asset Optimization is provided with the Device Object Types for System 800xA:
