The WirelessHART Gateways are the core elements of a WirelessHART Network.
The Network Manager determines the best primary and alternative paths between the single wireless sensors. It also determines which sensor is allowed to send a message on a specific channel. Network wireless communication is organized and optimized to provide the best performance in terms of speed, throughput, and energy consumption.
The WirelessHART gateways provide the connection to DCS or Asset management systems with an Ethernet and RS485 interface, which can transfer data via HART or MODBUS protocol.
The integration in DCS or AMS is done via DTM or DD.
The Pepperl+Fuchs gateways offer:
- Easy to understand network diagnostics via web interface
- Free choice of control system manufacturer
- Flexible Modbus Mapping Generator for fast commissioning
