HART-IP allows host level systems and asset management applications to access and integrate measurement and device diagnostics information from HART-enabled field devices through existing IP networks be they Ethernet, packet-radio, satellite or 3G/4G based.
IF INSTRUMENT INFORMATION NEEDS TO BE MADE AVAILABLE TO AN IP NETWORK, IT CAN BE DONE WITH HART-IP
HART-IP is a simple-to-use, high-level application technology that is independent of the underlying media. Thus HART-IP operates with redundant Ethernet media as well as mesh or ring topologies. Similarly, HART-IP can run over Power over Ethernet (PoE) for such infrastructure and devices. Speeds of 10 Mbit/s, 100 Mbit/s, and 1 Gbit/s etc. are supported.
Because the application layer is the same for HART field devices as HART-IP, time consuming and error-prone data mapping, for example with MODBUS RTU is eliminated, making HART-IP the most simple to use and suitable backhaul network for WirelessHART gateways and wired HART multiplexers and remote I/O.
HART-IP offers a straightforward method to access large amounts of all the standard HART information available in a HART device coming from products that concentrate many measurement points into a single output. It allows the information from these devices to be integrated with TCP/IP networks easily, without the need to go through any translation processes and with no loss of information.
