FDT framework program from PACTware™ Consortium e. V. for assimilating and operating FDT-compatible device, system, and communication-related DTMs from any manufacturer. Microsoft .NET Framework must be installed in order to run the program.
Similar to the printer driver in an office environment, the field device in the FDT environment features its own driver, including a user interface. This driver is called the Device Type Manager (DTM). For Pepperl+Fuchs products, you can find the relevant DTM at the corresponding field device, and all device DTMs and communication DTMs are also grouped together in collections here.
The IODD (IO Device Description) provides access to the IO-Link device data via the IO-Link protocol. The IODD contains information on communication properties and device parameters, as well as identification data, process data, and diagnostic data. For Pepperl+Fuchs products, you will find each IODD associated with the relevant sensors, or you can see all IODDs sorted by product series.
