Adapter Enables Wireless Conversion Of Field Devices
Honeywell has released a new adapter for its OneWireless Solution that enables manufacturers to convert field devices that use HART protocol to be able to transmit data over an ISA100.11a-compliant wireless network. By allowing any HART device to communicate over the wireless network, the OneWireless adapter is designed to improve plant efficiency by giving operators the data they need to make better decisions.
Honeywell’s OneWireless portfolio includes field instrumentation, input/output devices, mobile devices, network components and related services. It enables plants to support a wide range of wireless devices from multiple suppliers on a single mesh network. Based on the global ISA100.11a standard, OneWireless offers data communications in harsh industrial environments, as well as features that provide secure data encryption, fast data response time, and long battery life.
