Does anyone have any experience with 475 toolkit for FOUNDATION FIELDBUS devices. I want to create a DD file for an old Micrmotion Transmitter 5300 series.
I don't recommend you create your own DD. If there are compatibility issue with the DD, you could cause other issue. Normally the manufacturer will supply you with the DD even if the device is old. Ask Micro Motion at: ContactUs@Emerson.com

There are DDs for old versions of DeltaV and AMS available at http://www2.emersonprocess.com/en-US/documentation/deviceinstallkits/Pages/deviceinstallkitsearch.aspx. Just click on the Emerson Micro Motion Brand/Manufacturer and select the 5300 under Device (you may have to have the device list "show more" before you see the 5300). It looks like there is a DD for the AMS 9 & 10 version. The 5300 transmitter became obsolete approximately 15 years ago, so it will be difficult to configure with newer hosts.
salehatiyyat You may also consider the new AMS Trex Device Communicator. It includes the capability to import standard device description files in the customer facing tool set. You don't need to convert them using the developer kits like the 475 Field Communicator.

This process will utilize the Upgrade Studio software that comes with the AMS Trex Device Communicator (make sure you have the latest version). Select MORE>IMPORT DEVICE DECRIPTION and then follow the dialog. One thing to note, when you browse for the DD files, make sure you multi-select all the files with either a shift/ctrl click.
