Fieldcomm Group has partnered with Bilfinger Maintenance to create a usability evaluation service for FDI enabled field instruments and systems. The service is available to field instrumentation suppliers and will be managed as an optional service. Instrument usability will be evaluated by Bilfinger technicians through a series of tests with several host applications and systems. At the conclusion of the evaluation the supplier will receive a report documenting the observations.
Devices that are tested will be evaluated against a set of important criteria for usability including presence and appropriate configuration of all security certificates, successful import of the FDI Device Package into each selected host system, validation that the FDI Device Package identification parameters match the product nameplate, and operation of the FDI Device Package.
