Design and Development of Wireless HART Device Platform

Krishna Moorthy, Integrated Engineering Services


There has been increasing demand on adopting wireless technology for data transmission in industrial process and plant automation systems. Adoption of wireless technologies ensure safe and reliable transmissions of data from network of process monitoring sensors to a wireless gateway for further monitoring and control from the remote location.

WirelessHART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) technology provides robust wireless protocol platform for the range of applications in process measurements, control, and asset management. Based on the proven and familiar HART Communication Protocol, WirelessHART enables users the benefits of wireless technology while maintaining compatibility with existing devices, tools, and systems. The protocol utilizes a time synchronized, self-organizing, and self-healing mesh architecture. The protocol supports operation in the 2.4 GHz ISM band, using IEEE 802.15.4 standard radios. Wireless HART was defined for the requirements of process field device networks

ISA100 Wireless™; End-user Vision Realized

Wireless HART: An Expanding Horizon

Steven Moore, Emerson Read Bio
Steven Moore is a Graduate of The University of Tennessee where he earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Engineering Science and Mechanics. He earned an MBA degree from Auburn University. Steve has worked for Rosemount for the last 21 years, primarily in sales and marketing. He is currently the Wireless Specialist for the Southeast US and makes his home in Knoxville Tennessee.


Wireless HART (IEC 62591) is a well established, international-standard wireless solution for industrial process control and instrumentation. With more than 10,000 installed networks and more than a billion hours of operation, it is a proven, reliable choice for both monitoring and open loop control.
This presentation will cover the basics of the technology including the self organizing, mesh topology, imbedded security, and robust, measurable reliability. We will show how this technology will bring solutions to solve real world problems. Additionally, a review of manufacturers and their product availability will be discussed.
This technology offers a solution that can be easily implemented quickly and at a lower installed cost over traditional installations. Wireless HART also offers industry standard Integration and communication options for stand alone and complex control systems. 
The presentation will be summarized by describing several high-impact, high-ROI applications to current Wireless HART users.
