The use of Foundation Fieldbus technology in projects is increasing every year. The Foundation Fieldbus technology has been formerly employed as a simple digital communication protocol for field devices only. But with the development of, FF HSE (Foundation Fieldbus High Speed Ethernet) network standard, it has a much broader application now, on the controller level as well. This paper will discuss these issues using as a background a real project that was executed in a Coke Oven Battery and By-Product Plant at Tata Steel. The project has over 8000 I/Os, 6 Controllers, 16 workstations and several package units, and is a perfect scenario to highlight such issues. The paper will present the project showing the problems and achievements of all phases: Selection, Definition,Engineering, FAT, Commissioning and Start-up. With this paper the authors expect to share their knowledge and experience on FF applications, as applied to this particular project probably for the first time in India.
