Advanced Diagnostics

Advanced diagnostic module (ADM)

The advanced diagnostic module (ADM), Pepperl+Fuchs offers enhanced PROFIBUS PA physical layer diagnostics. It automates commissioning and documentation, monitors the fieldbus segment online, and identifies faults in realtime.

With ADM by Pepperl+Fuchs, an embedded expert system learns and interprets the electric values and behaviour of each segment. Plant maintenance receives early, easy-to-understand warnings. This offers a wealth of benefits and is supported by simple user display:


  • Accelerated segment commissioning: due to FieldConnex advanced diagnostics, Foxboro/Triconex allows remote segment testing and documentation - eliminating numerous time-consuming and repetitive tasks.
  • Improved plant availability: the fieldbus physical layer is monitored continuously. Critical conditions are detected at an early stage. This allows corrective measures before there is any impact on plant operation.
  • Expert system for fast troubleshooting: In case of an alarm condition, incident-related information describes the nature of the problem and suggests remedies. This accelerates troubleshooting by service technicians
