Build an FDI Device Package Workshop – December 11 (1:00pm - 6:00pm)

Learn how to build an FDI Device Package in one afternoon! That's right - walk in with a device and a DD and walk out with a functioning basic FDI Device Package. Then, as a bonus, test your newly created package on the following day at the FDI PlugFest (information below).

Attendees must have their own FDI-IDE software loaded on their laptop and have a device with working EDD source code for the device. IDE can be purchased on our website. FCG will provide a free temporary license to those who don't own the FDI-IDE software. The temporary license will expire 30 days after the workshop.

Seats for this workshop are limited. All registrations are accepted on a first-come first-served basis. A separate message will be sent from the workshop instructor confirming your participation and any additional information about the workshop. Register now by clicking the registration button below.


FDI PlugFest – December 12-13

The FDI PlugFest will be held on December 12 (3:30pm - 6pm) - December 13 (8:30am - 5:00pm) and will be jointly hosted by FieldComm Group and PROFIBUS/PROFINET International. The prime objective of the FDI PlugFest is to improve the interoperability of FDI Device Packages and FDI Host Systems being developed and released into the market. During the PlugFest teams of engineers working on the development of FDI packages will work to verify the interoperability of their components with host products from different companies. The PlugFest is open to participants who bring either field devices with an FDI Package or host applications that support FDI.

All participants are required to agree to a confidentiality agreement in order to participate. Please review the agreement before you complete the registration form. You will be asked to agree to the terms of the agreement on the Registration Page. FIeldComm Group Confidentiality Agreement
