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
