Design Tools

Design tools allow engineering firms, system integrators, plant control engineers and technicians to design and preview specific FOUNDATION™ fieldbus plant implementations before commissioning a job on site. In particular, our DesignMATE segment verification tool allows plant automation professionals to audit segment layouts in a user-friendly environment.

The tool helps assure end users their fieldbus infrastructure will work with desired parameters such as cable length, number and type of installed devices, and selected power supplies. DesignMATE allows users to perform rapid calculations, eliminate human error, improve efficiency, and minimize the amount of paperwork required during the segment design phase.
