China adopts FDT standard


China adopts FDT standard

FDT Group announces that a cooperative initiative undertaken by China’s National TC124 On Industrial Process Measurement, Control and Automation of SAC (TC124/SAC); Instrumentation Technology and Economy Institute, P.R. China (ITEI); China Instrument Manufacturer Association (CIMA); Southwest University; and the FDT Professional Committee has resulted in a national standard for device integration based on FDT 2.0 technology. The Chinese GB/T 29618-2017 Field Device Tool (FDT) Interface Specification incorporates the latest FDT technology enhancements, an open standard for industrial enterprise-wide network and asset integration.

Ongoing advancement of the FDT technology is leveraging major developments like the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industrie 4.0 to enable end users to realize the true potential of decentralization, interoperability and integration, as well as a unified view of all data and functions across process, factory and hybrid control applications. The FDT 2.0 specification, employing an architecture based on Microsoft .NET technology, offers all the properties needed by modern software right up to web- and client/server-based systems.

According to Tian Zhaoying, vice director of the 2nd Industry Department, Standardization Administration, People´s Republic of China (SAP), standardization is an important requirement for intelligent manufacturing. "The purpose of our ongoing efforts is to enable the effective implementation of advanced industrial standards while promoting social and economic development within China," he said. "The Chinese FDT Professional Committee and ITEI actively assisted the development of FDT so this advanced technology could be widely implemented by our country´s manufacturing community."

FDT Group Managing Director Glenn Schulz expressed gratitude for establishment of the Chinese national standard for device integration technology. "There is growing demand for FDT-enabled solutions employing FDT 2.0 technology in developing industrial markets around the world," Schulz said. "Based on robust .NET technology, the FDT 2.0 standard maintains proven FDT heritage, but includes numerous performance enhancements while ensuring backward compatibility with our existing installed base."
