Regarding Foundation Fieldbus
Normally we use Uplaod parameter in commisioning mode to fetch the values of the field device to compare /commit with the offline configuration before a download.
So is there any way by which we can fetch the parameters in the field device without performing an upload ??
you can see the current parameters in the dialog masks of the blocks in commissioning mode (they are read from the device). Differences to the current configuration are shown with yellow background.
You can do a partial upload in a block by selecting some parameters and use upload from the right click context menu.
But this is probably not what you look for, right?
