If you have a bunch of field instruments in your distributed operation, you know the pain of trying to troubleshoot one. If you don’t have enough information about the issue, the clock is ticking as you try to isolate the problem based on limited diagnostics.
HART – most widely used in process industries – is a vendor-neutral protocol that provides additional diagnostic data from your field instruments. This information can help you increase efficiency and decrease downtime – you’ll avoid extra time searching for the source of a problem, and you have the ability to diagnose an issue remotely.
ProSoft’s newest modules support up to 4 channels of HART communication, which is ideal for operations with multiple devices. The gateways feature support for EtherNet/IP™, Modbus® TCP/IP, and DNP3 Ethernet networks, and streamlined integration of HART data into Rockwell Automation® PLCs.
