Is it posible to use AC800F as a FDT DTM gateway?
I know Freelance has a FDT-DTM containers that with the proper licence is posible to us DTM with hart instrumentation. But I want to know if there is a gateway DTM for the AC800F so I can use an external asset manager?.
Where can I download ABB DTM for controler hardware o ther is a reference that I have to buy to get them?
Thank you all in advance

Hi, ABB doesn´t support 3rd party solutions (especially their integration with current systems) similar to other system vendors.
I am not expert for Freelance, than plase take next information as general only:
If you are planning to deploy 3rd party Asset Manager please contact directly vendor of this solution and ask him for integration to system (possibilities regarding interface and experiences with integration). There is no other way. 3rd party solution integration is complicated (especially for asset management solution - there can arise issues during life cycle side of the system - after upgrades, HW exchange, interfaces reconfiguration and similar topics).
There can exist a few trouble free ways to integrate HART data - first can be via multiplexers - HART data are extracted directly from multiplexer (bypass control system HW), but this solution is expensive especially in case of running and installed system. Second way can be via wireless module (if device itself support it) and extraction HART data via wireless gateway.
If you are not satisfied with Freelance solution we would like to ask you for feedback (what you are missing, issues, functionality and so on) to improve it.
