We Claim:

1. A method for scaling processing capability of a field device in an industrial control system using a processing sub-system, wherein the industrial control system comprises one or more field devices, one or more input-output devices, at least one controller, and at least one server, the method comprising:

configuring a virtual field device object in the processing sub-system using one or more functional components from a plurality of functional components, and a field device identifier tag of a field device in the industrial control system;

receiving measurement data from the field device in the processing sub-system;

processing the measurement data in the processing sub-system by the virtual field device object corresponding to the field device, to generate processed field device data; and

communicating the processed field device data using one or more pre-configured communication interfaces to the industrial control system.

2. The method of claim 1 wherein at least one of the one or more pre-configured communication interfaces is configured for communicating the processed field device data to at least one the field device, an input-output device coupled to the field device, the at least one controller, and the server.

3. The method of claim 1 wherein the one or more pre-configured communication interfaces are configured to receive at least one of request commands, input-output commands, and control commands from at least one the field device, an input-output device coupled to the field device, the at least one controller, and the server.

4. The method of claim 1 wherein configuring the virtual field device object triggers receiving of the measurement data from the field device.

5. The method of claim 1 wherein the one or more pre-configured communication interfaces use at least one of wired or wireless communication means.

6. The method of claim 1 wherein receiving measurement data is done using a coupler, wherein the coupler is configured to receive measurement data from the one or more field devices and transmit measurement data identified for each of the one or more field devices to the processing sub-system using a unique field device identifier tag for each of the one or more field devices.

7. A control system for control and monitoring of one or more process conditions in an industrial plant, the control system comprising:

an industrial control system having one or more field devices, one or more input- output devices, at least one controller, and at least one server;

a processing sub-system for scaling processing capability of a field device in the industrial control system, wherein the processing sub-system comprises:

a functional component library module having a plurality of functional components;

a virtual field device object configured using one or more functional components from the plurality of functional components, and a field device identifier tag of a field device in the industrial control system;

a communication module for receiving measurement data from the field device,

wherein the functional components are configured for processing the measurement data to generate processed field device data, and wherein the communication module is configured for communicating the processed field device data; and

one or more pre-configured communication interfaces to communicate the processed field device data to the industrial control system.

8. The control system of claim 7 wherein the one or more pre-configured communication interfaces link a native network of the industrial control system with a second network of the processing sub-system, wherein the second network is different from the native network.

9. The control system of claim 7 further comprising a coupler configured to receive measurement data from the one or more field devices and transmit measurement data identified for each of the one or more field devices to the processing sub-system using a unique field device identifier tag for each of the one or more field devices.

10. The control system of claim 7 wherein the one or more pre-configured communication interfaces communicate the processed field device data to at least one of the field device, an input-output device coupled to the field device, the at least one controller and the server.
