Process Instrumentation Networks

Our Process Instrumentation Networks provide communication between process instruments and the process control system. We offer integrated PlantPAx Distributed Control System support for instruments on HART and the FOUNDATION fieldbus. Our Encompass Partners provide expanded support for Profibus PA, as well as Modbus and other networks. Endress+Hauser and other partners now offer process instruments that connect to EtherNet/IP networks to support this growing trend.


Our PlantPAx Distributed Control System provides a single plant-wide control and information platform while the FOUNDATION Fieldbus standard provides the ability to distribute the control architecture throughout your facility. Combine these two powerful technologies to enable integrated, seamless distribution of data and the execution of process control with devices from multiple sources.

HART Communication Protocol

The HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) protocol is a widely accepted standard for digitally enhanced communication with instrumentation within the process industries.
