For the purpose of this discussion, each WirelessHART device is assumed to have a fixed scan rate, which is the pre-configured rate at which the device sensor is energized and a reading of the process variable is made. Staying Secure in the Smart Era: Each WirelessHART Gateway is connected to one or more host systems, which are typically installed in the control room. A detailed discussion of how to add instruments to existing wireless networks. Visible in the background is the temperature connection head for the obscured Rosemount wireless temperature transmitter.

A bit security key is used to authenticate wireless field devices when joining the network, including encryption of the join request. This enables direct access to WirelessHART field devices from the host systems without the need to perform any intermediate mapping.
With the ability to integrate WirelessHART data using standard interface protocols, these existing databases can be automatically populated with information from WirelessHART field devices.
To communicate with the gateway, and ultimately the host system, the WirelessHART device must be configured to communicate over the wireless network. The host system integration philosophy should be such that data from a WirelessHART field network is delivered to the appropriate end user.
The gateway is hard-wired to the host system stypically via a Modbus or an Ethernet link Figure 3. The update rate thus affects the time between an alarm condition and when it can be detected. This wireless installation measures steam flow injection rates in this oil and gas field by utilizing differential pressure, gauge pressure and temperature measurements.
The gateway will automatically establish the logical and best paths, thus no user intervention is required. WirelessHART devices are based on the HART Highway Addressable Remote Transducer protocol, which has become the global standard for sending mas receiving digital information using mA analog wiring between smart devices and handheld devices or host systems.
Although most WirelessHART field devices are used for monitoring purposes, they can also be used for real-time control in certain applications.
Two configuration parameters are required:. This is the third of a five-article series on wireless instrumentation and infrastructure. For more detail on these and other subjects listed below, please see Reference 4. At least one gateway is required for each installation, with some confihurator requiring more. WirelessHART field devices report their battery voltage to the gateway, and have an integrated low voltage alarm so the user can either schedule maintenance or take corrective action.

For expediency, Device Parameter verification can be done prior to putting the device into service, either by the device supplier or by the end user in their instrument shop. Staying Secure in the Smart Era: The process to do this is very simple and requires only a few basic configuration parameters.
Each WirelessHART Gateway is connected to one or more host systems, which are typically installed in the control room.
The Field Communicator will require the proper device descriptor for configuration. Wireless field devices may have one of three power options: Host system configuration depends on the requirements of the host system.
To give some examples:.
Typical WirelessHART devices include temperature, pressure, flow, level and other process variable transmitters Figure 1. Back to top Posted in: By design, the protocol utilizes every channel in the 2.
Users should set an update time for each WirelessHART device which exceeds the process response time to ensure that any changes or disturbances in the process variable are captured within the planned update time of the field device.
Users should enable Active Advertising on the gateway to ensure new devices join the network faster. In some installations, not all data collected from the WirelessHART field devices belongs in the control system, as some points of measurement cinfigurator just be used for monitoring or asset management.
Visible in the background is the temperature connection head for the obscured Rosemount wireless temperature transmitter. My Cart Books Online Training. These devices use the WirelessHART bi-directional communication protocol to provide data access between intelligent wireless field instruments and handheld devices or host systems.

Upon conclusion of this five-article series, the reader will be prepared to justify, design, install and maintain wireless instrumentation and wireless networks. For the purpose of this discussion, each WirelessHART device is assumed to have a fixed scan rate, which is the pre-configured rate at which the device sensor configurxtor energized and a reading of the process variable is made.
Other host systems may not have built-in support for the HART protocol, and may thus require additional configuration. The Join Key information is displayed in hexadecimal format via a web browser or a handheld communicator, resulting in a character hexadecimal field.
