WirelessHART - flexibility in process management
Reduce your project costs thanks to more efficient planning and rapid installation.
WirelessHART is a wireless technology specifically conceived for process automation. It adds wireless capabilities to the HART protocol while maintaining compatibility with existing HART devices, commands and tools.
WirelessHART has a number of features, e.g. self-organization and self-healing, that ensure reliable operation, flexibility and quick installation. Security and integrity are guaranteed by time synchronized communication, key management and encryption according to AES128.
Advantages of WirelessHART technology
Remote and difficult-to-access measuring points connected without expensive cables
Simple planning, rapid installation, quick integration into the plant infrastructure
High level of reliability due to redundant communication paths
Easiest upgrade of Endress+Hauser and 3rd party HART devices
Simple parameterization and monitoring of entire plant sections using DTM and DD technology with e.g. FieldCare, Plant Asset Management software
