The WirelessHART Gateway comes with a physical Ethernet interface and a RS485 interface. HART IP and EtherNet/IP are transmitted via Ethernet interface. All standard EtherNet/IP connections are supported. Up to 40 participants including the gateway interact in one network and are completely detected by the control system.
Due to full integration in add-on profiles for Rockwell Automation Logix Controller and electronic data sheets, a time-consuming parameterization of the network participants is no longer necessary. Addresses only need to be distributed to the participants via HART modem or Device Type Manager. This task can easily be performed parallel to the setting of network IDs or join keys. All other settings are carried out by the control system itself.
