Functions of PRM R3.05

1. PROFIBUS Support
PRM now supports PROFIBUS DP/PA devices and HART devices that are connected with PROFIBUS DP. Communication with the PROFIBUS fieldbus is handled via third-party devices using CommunicationDTM and GatewayDTM open interface functions.

2. Field Wireless Devices Support
Support of ISA100.11a compliant field wireless devices has been added. Communication with these devices is done via a field wireless integrated gateway.

3. CommunicationDTM/GatewayDTM Support
When a vendor’s CommunicationDTM/Gateway DTM is installed on a communication server PC, PRM can communicate with field devices via communication protocols. Via CommunicationDTM/GatewayDTM, PRM can be used to set and adjust field device parameters. PRM supports PROFIBUS communication devices and field wireless integrated gateways.

4. Maintenance Marks
Maintenance marks are used by maintenance engineers to identify the status of a device. By linking maintenance marks with operation marks on the CENTUM function blocks, maintenance engineers and operators can share the same device information and coordinate their work.
