- It is compatible with many Asset Management software packages.
What is HART?
HART abbreviated as Highway Addressable Remote Transducer uses a 1200 baud frequency shift Keying (FSK) signal to superimpose digital information on the conventional 4-20 mA analog signal. This protocol is established by Rosemount Inc. considered as a smart digital communication protocol for the smart field instruments in the mid-1980s.
Operating modes supported by HART protocol
HART supports three operating modes during communication with an external device. Three modes are:
(i) Point to point mode (analog/digital mode):
It is the most commonly used mode for every professional technician because it connects the Fluke 754 process calibrator to a single HART device in a 4-20mA loop. In this mode, the digital part of the HART protocol can be seen as a kind of digital current loop interface.
(ii) Multidrop mode:
When we communicate with devices sometimes several HART instruments can be bussed together. To overcome this problem, we perform the operation in this mode where the fluke 754 calibrator searches for each, identifies addresses in use and allows you to select the instrument for calibration and related operation.
(iii) Burst mode:
In this mode, without waiting for the interrogation by a master unit the HART instrument transmits bursts of data. The fluke 754 calibrator can take transmitters out of burst mode during test or calibration.
Capabilities of HART protocol
Fluke 754 process calibrator perform day to day task and records its results with a separate communicator. It is the famous calibrator in the eyes of professional technicians because of its HART capabilities. Some of its capabilities are:
- You can easily update it when additional instruments are added or HART new versions released.
- It offers fast HART communication.
- For everyday HART calibration and maintenance, it requires no external box or second tool.
- It reconfigures the sensor mapping of dual sensor temperature transmitters.
- It works with multi-drop configurations, burst mode and multiple masters.
- While measuring analog mA output, you can easily read the HART PV function and smart transmitter digital output.
- You can interrogate this protocol to determine the model, tag and device type.
- It Re-label smart transmitters by reading and writing to the HART tag field.
- To make field adjustments to PV range points, damping, etc it reads and writes HART configuration functions.
- It supports popular models of HART transmitters with more device-specific command support.
