    It is unfortunate, to say the least, that the search for a common fieldbus standard has proved both protracted and divisive. The fieldbus approach to inter-device communications in a control environment has clear benefits. Costs are lower-the result of replacing multiple point-to-point links with a shared bus-while local intelligence enhances the functionality of field devices and reduces the dema...
