1. A control system, comprising:

  • a memory operable to simultaneously store in one of said memories a foundation fieldbus protocol that facilitates communication with one or more foundation fieldbus devices and a global data over ethernet protocol that facilitates communication with one or more control devices;

    at least one processor operable to access the foundation fieldbus protocol and the global data over ethernet protocol and control the one or more foundation fieldbus devices and the one or more control devices;

    a communication module operable to synchronize communications using the foundation fieldbus protocol and using the global data over ethernet protocol, wherein the communication module comprises runtime software that combines two ethernet stacks running on the same ethernet layer and running in parallel, and wherein one of the two ethernet stacks comprises communications formatted according to the fieldbus protocol and the other of the two ethernet stacks comprises communications formatted according to the global data over ethernet protocol; and

    an Ethernet network, wherein the Ethernet network facilitates communication between the at least one processor and the one or more Foundation Fieldbus devices that use the Foundation Fieldbus protocol and the one or more control devices that use the Ethernet Global data protocol, wherein use of a gateway device is avoided between the at least one processor and the one or more Foundation Fieldbus devices.
