VERTICAL INTEGRATION OF TTP/A FIELDBUS SYSTEMS USING WEB SERVICES

Abstract

This paper presents a generic technique to expose data and control of fieldbus systems to applications located at the level of operational management. To provide a high degree of interoperability between the operational level and different fieldbus systems we utilize standardized techniques such as XML, HTTP, and Web services which can be deployed independently of the platform. The proposed service is based on the interface file system for TTP/A smart transducers. The defined interface provides high level abstractions appropriate for the integration into business applications and considers the latency introduced by the internet protocols.
