Use PACTware software to program Wireless HART devices
Are you having trouble making the connection between Pepperl+Fuchs’ WirelessHART adapter and gateway? This post will take you step by step through the process of programming a Pepperl+Fuchs WHA-ADP (ADP) battery-powered adapter to connect to our WirelessHART gateway WHA-GW (GW) and PACTware 4.x (PW).
Highway Addressable Remote Transducer (HART) is a bi-directional form of digital communication used in the process automation industry. HART employs Frequency-Shift Keying (FSK) technology to transmit field instrument data to an asset management system used to analyze and react to changing conditions of the device or process. The digital HART communication signal is produced using 1,200 and 2,200 Hz frequencies (corresponding to 1 and 0) and superimposed on the analog 4-20 mA control signal without interrupting or interfering with the analog signal.
