Abstract

See full text

Methods, apparatus, and articles of manufacture to identify hazardous process conditions associated with devices in a process control system are disclosed. An example method to identify a hazardous process control type associated with a process control device includes automatically detecting that a process control device is coupled to a port on a controller, detecting information associated with the process control device via the port, identifying a hazardous process condition type of the process control device based on the detected information, and sending information to a computing device to cause a display to include visual indication of the identified hazardous process condition type in association with the process control device.
