The latest version of Advanced Diagnostic Module DTM software monitors the quality of fieldbus communication for Foundation fieldbus H1 and Profibus PA networks, and includes a number of updates that speed fieldbus commissioning. This tool translates information provided by the ADM into actionable information and can run on a server in the control room.

Additional updates include automated tag reading – the ADM can read and document tags and device IDs in combination with any Foundation fieldbus host, and an improved oscilloscope offers more trigger events and automatically captures up to 10 shots in a row; each bit and telegram is identified with type and value, as well as source and destination address.
