FDT standardizes the communication and configuration interface between devices and control system or engineering or asset management tools. Examples include: PACTware™, FieldCare, FactoryTalk AssetCentre, and Process Device Configuration.
Device Type Manager
The Device Type Manager (DTM) provides a unified structure for accessing device-specific data, functions, and logic elements. DTMs range from a simple graphical user interface for setting device parameters to a highly sophisticated application that can perform complex calculations for diagnostics and maintenance purposes. DTMs can also implement arbitrary complex business logics for device calibration.
