FieldComm Group began operations on January 1, 2015 by combining all assets of the former Fieldbus Foundation and HART Communication Foundation.
FieldComm Group is a global standards-based non-profit member organization consisting of leading process end users, manufacturers, universities and research organizations that work together to direct the development, incorporation and implementation of communication technologies for the process industries. Membership is open to anyone interested in the use of the technologies. In addition to HART and FOUNDATION Fieldbus communication technologies, FieldComm Group is responsible for ongoing development of Field Device Integration (FDI) Technology.
The establishment of the FieldComm Group allows developers of digital open standards to better collaborate on new and existing technologies and to increase market share of digital field devices in the total device market.
