We are no newcomers to the fieldbus environment. From involvement in defining the earliest standards through to representation on today’s industry bodies, MTL and Relcom have attained a distinguished profile in fieldbus technology. And to maximise your efficiencies using our equipment we have produced various software packages designed to help fieldbus engineering.
Fieldbus segment calculator v1.5.4
The MTL segment calculator is a spreadsheet-based tool designed to assist network and planning engineers when designing and implementing FOUNDATION fieldbus ™ H1 networks. Specific data covering MTL fieldbus power supplies, including the latest Redundant FISCO units, wiring hubs and third-party field devices are pre-programmed although users can input their own device parameters. Calculations using surge protection devices are also accommodated.

MTL SmartPlant Instrumentation (SPI) symbol library for FOUNDATIONfieldbus™ components
MTL has made it easier for engineering designers and end users to use their FOUNDATION fieldbus™ products by developing a utility to import the complete range of MTL-Relcom fieldbus products (Power Supplies, Megablocks™, surge protectors, and Entity conversion blocks) into SmartPlant Instrumentation version 7 and 2007.
SmartPlant is among the most successful examples of the new generation design tools created to reduce the cost of designing control systems. The cost of designing a single control loop can be in excess of one man-day, so using tools like SmartPlant can dramatically reduce these costs. The utility, including all associated files is available for download below.

Fieldbus Barrier Segment calculator v22.214.171.124
The MTL Fieldbus Barrier segment calculation software tool is designed for use with the 9311-FB Zone 1 Fieldbus Barrier. The tool automatically checks the design of fieldbus segments using MTL Fieldbus Barriers. Warning messages will be displayed if any of the input or calculated parameters are out of range.
