What is the Segment Design Tool?
The Segment Design Tool is a Windows XP / Windows 7 compatible program designed to
provide a general guide for reducing the time required to engineer a FOUNDATION
Fieldbus H1 segment of DeltaV systems, Ovation systems and 3420 Fieldbus
Interface Modules. The Segment Design Tool checks the segment layout utilizing
the FOUNDATION Fieldbus rules governing cable lengths, power consumption and
proper segment termination. This tool now supports a variety of Intrinsically
Safe concepts, including Entity, FISCO FNICO and High Power Trunk (HPT). Given
that the tool results are based on ideal components, power and layout
specification, the tool results only provide a general indication as to the
expected performance of the segment; therefore; the PlantWeb Architecture
components specifications and installation instructions will always take
precedence. Your utilization of the Segment Design Tool will be conditioned
upon your acceptance of the Segment Design Tool Software License Agreement
