What Does the Process Automation Understand Under Diagnosis?

Technical Abstract

Having consistent diagnosis in Process Automation brings to customers great potential saving in the maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) phase. The German-based process industry end-user association NAMUR has published a recommendation, NE 107 (“Self-Monitoring and Diagnosis of Field Devices”).

To follow these requirements, investigations and perspective on EtherNet/IPTM will be needed.

This paper will go through to these requirements.
