Automation Configuration Diagrams of a steel plant process using Foundation Field Bus

Challenges for gaining use of Foundation Field Bus in steel plant.


Technological improvement with more and more instruments and instrumentation systems to support Foundation Field Bus. Inclination of Technology Providers acceptance of Foundation Field Bus.

The advantages, in general, as being experienced by the Steel Plant users: Reduction in installation & commissioning time. Management of field devices. Remote configuration of field devices. Improvement in diagnostic study and effective maintenance.

CONCLUSION
Growth potential in Steel Sector is very high. A less protocol specific network and cabling will result in bringing down further the cost as well as provide transparency in plant wide flow of information. Some untapped resources like wireless technology will bring significant impact. Foundation Field Bus Technology as well as the associated instrumentation manufacturers and technology providers shall have better correlation in order to give rise required solution for the tremendous future growth in steel plants.
