A WirelessHART adapter is fitted to the ultrasonic level sensor where it reads the data via HART and transmits it to the control system via a gateway. The WirelessHART adapter is battery-powered. It supplies itself and the connected sensor with energy, offering the highest degree of flexibility.
Distances of up to 250 m are possible between the hazardous-location-certified adapter and the centrally installed gateway. If longer routes to the gateway need to be bridged, additional adapters can receive and forward the signal.
