causes a portion of the pulse to reflect back toward the
transmitter. Guided wave radar is unaffected by vapor,
density, foam, dielectric fluctuations, temperature, and
pressure changes, and works well for short and mediumrange measurements, and materials with low dielectric
constants such as liquified gases. Interface of two liquids
(i. e. oil/water) can also be measured with both level and

SIMATIC PDM (Process Device Manager) is a universal,
non-proprietary tool for the configuration, parameterization, commissioning, diagnostics and maintenance of
intelligent field devices (sensors and actuators) and field
components (remote I/Os, multiplexers, control room
­devices, compact controllers).
Over 1,200 process devices from more than 100 manufacturers are supported by SIMATIC PDM. The design
and function of the devices can be described using the
Electronic Device Description Language (EDDL), based on
the leading EDD international standard (Electronic Device
Description; IEC 61804).
SIMATIC PDM uses this to automatically create an easy-touse interface providing the required information on the
process devices. The latest release of this standard allows
the implementation of state-of-the-art user interfaces:
(Maintenance and Diagnostic Station)
is a Windows-based application for

–– Enhanced graphical interface
Communication with process devices is by HART,
­PROFIBUS or alternative protocols. SIMATIC PDM can be
used as a universal parameterization tool as well as in the
integrated version in the SIMATIC Step7/PCS 7 environment.
SIMATIC PDM meets all requirements from field level to
various types of industrial communication and central
­engineering service and maintenance.
◼◼Asset Management
comprises all activities and measures designed to
maintain or increase the value of a plant. This primarily
includes value-enhancing service and maintenance
(plant-specific asset management) in addition to
business management, process management and process
optimization. Because of its comprehensive functionality
SIMATIC PDM is particularly suited to provide the device
data required for plant-specific asset management and
transfer it to higher-level asset management systems in
XML format via a uniform interface. However, SIMATIC
PDM is much more than just a data logger for higher-level
asset management systems. It offers a wide range of asset
management functions as well.
Communication and Software
◼◼HART – field communication protocol
Decentralized automation solutions based on open
field buses are currently standard in many areas of the
production and process industry. The benefits of digital
communication can be fully exploited in combination
with field buses, including improved resolution of
values, diagnostics options and remote parameterization.
The HART® communication standard is used by more
than 30 million installed smart process instruments with
increasing numbers. The standard is managed by the
HCF (HART Communication Foundation) and extends
analog 4 –20 mA signals to modulated, industry-quality,
digital HART signals. The advantage is the combination of
tried-and-tested analog measurement-value transfer and
simultaneous digital communication with bi-directional,
acyclic transfer. This allows transfer of diagnostics,
maintenance and process information from field devices
to higher-level systems. Standardized parameter sets can
be used for the non-proprietary operation of all HART
Is an intelligent advancement of the proven wired
4 –20 mA HART technology towards wireless
communication as part of HCF Specification V7.
WirelessHART is backward compatible with wired HART
technology, and as such offers maximum protection
for investments in hardware and software, tools and
expertise. WirelessHART is designed to communicate
measured process variables or setpoints via the network
but also diagnostic and maintenance information and
para-meters. WirelessHART uses state-of-the-art security
technologies to ensure network and data protection.
Theses are e.g. meshed network topology including
redundancy, data encryption, message integrity, etc.
Enhanced electronic device descriptions (EDD) are used to
integrate HART devices into the SIMATIC PDM.
PROFIBUS is currently the most successful open field bus,
providing a flexible platform for a variety of applications.
Based on the IEC 61158 standard, it is a reliable investment and suitable for fast communication in production
and process automation. It is the first field bus and meets
the requirements of both sectors with the same communication performance.
PROFIBUS PA is tailored to the requirements of the process
industry, handling both the power supply for the devices
and communication between the devices and higher-level
PROFIBUS PA is intrinsically safe and can be used in hazardous areas.
Field devices for measuring pressure, temperature, flow,
level and actuators are also available for the intrinsically
safe FF bus. Communication via FF is also based on the
EDD standard and thus also offers the benefits of digital
This ensures simple operation and commissioning of field
devices, even in inaccessible locations.
