This news could have been expected. FieldComm Group, which just finalized acquiring the technology and assets of FDT Group which in turn had a relationship with PACTware Consortium, has joined this latter consortium. Those of us who lived through the various fieldbus wars and resulting corporate posturing live now in the consolidation phase. This should make things better for the new crop of engineers.

News in brief:

By adding support of FDI technology, PACTware 6.1 becomes one of the few manufacturer- and fieldbus-independent software applications to support the two leading device integration technologies, FDI and FDT/DTM.

FieldComm Group announces today that earlier this year it became the twenty third member of the PACTware Consortium. The PACTware application is now available for download through FieldComm Group. When users install PACTware, all currently registered HART Communication Protocol FDI Device Packages will also be installed.
