    Abstract

    Industrial automation has recently been rapidly adopting new technologies. After being under development for over 20 years, fieldbusses for process automation are finally ready to be applied in practice. The impact of information technologies can also be seen in industrial fields. These new technologies are highly promising, and their utilisation in practice is worth investigating. Modern field devices offer a wide range of information in addition to single process values. The utilisation of this information for device-fault diagnostics in a flotation plant is discussed in this paper.
