KROHNE becomes official FDT DTM Test Site
- KROHNE Messtechnik GmbH, Duisburg, has been appointed official FDT Test Site for FDT DTM certification
- One of 10 accredited FDT Test Sites worldwide
FDT Group has recently accredited KROHNE Messtechnik GmbH, Duisburg, as official FDT Test Site for FDT DTM certification. The certificate is the official acknowledgement for the fulfilment of the FDT specifications and thus an important mark of quality in the market for manufacturers and their products.
To officially verify the conformity of a DTM (Device Type Manager) to the standards of the FDT group, it has to pass standardised tests in an accredited FDT Test Site. KROHNE strived for this accreditation to address the increasing number of customer requests for certified DTMs for measuring instruments. Now, KROHNE Messtechnik GmbH is able to carry out tests of DTMs (Device type managers) developed by KROHNE or others which qualify for certification by the FDT Certification Office. Including KROHNE, there are only 10 accredited test sites worldwide.
The FDT Group (FDT: Field Device Tool) is an open, independent, non-profit association of international companies. The group strives for enabling the seamless integration of automation components, procured from global supply channels, across all automation networks.
