The FDI Common Host Components ‐ EDD Engine and UI Engine ‐ ensure that an FDI Device Package or an existing EDD behaves in the same way in various FDI host system architectures or EDD host system architectures. The EDD Engine supports the entire EDDL scope in a multiprotocol manner for FOUNDATION Fieldbus, HART, PROFIBUS and PROFINET, and is backward compatible with FF EDDL binary formats *.ffo, *.ff5, and; the HART EDDL binary formats *.fm8 and *.fm6 and the PROFIBUS/PROFINET binary format *.bin. The UI Engine is independent of communication protocols. It generates the device specific user interfaces from a device description. System manufacturers will no longer need to integrate multiple interpreter components, this saves time and effort, and aims to contribute to improving the quality and interoperability of all host systems.

  • Supports FDI Client architecture containing the UID Renderer and UIP Hosting components
  • Supports Device Variants (Profibus/Profinet only)
