One of the things we try to do at the Fieldbus Foundation is put information into the hands of people that need it. We want people to learn how to do fieldbus the right way, from engineering and design to installation, maintenance, and operations. That's why we offer free end user seminars around the world, our DesignMate segment design tool, and our numerous Fieldbus Certified Training Program partners.
Perhaps our "best kept secret", however, is our AG 181 System Engineering Guide. We recently revised AG 181, making this revision 3.2. You can download the latest version of AG 181 System Engineering Guidelines here. AG 181 contains the distilled wisdom of many of the world's leading experts from those in the engineering and construction world to end users, systems integrators, educators, and suppliers. AG 181 offers many good pointers on how to do your fieldbus project right the first time. It is an essential part of the toolbox of any FOUNDATION fieldbus professional! If you already have the older version, this new version will look more streamlined and contains several new sections, as well as rewrites of old sections.
