New gateway's backhaul ups existing HART network flexibility

Click to Enlarge

RAD-WHG/WLAN-XD WirelessHART gateway is newly announced with an integrated 802.11b/g WLAN transceiver. It’s declared to increase reliability and flexibility of an existing HART network.

The rail-mount, 45-mm gateway connects up to 250 WirelessHart field devices. It converts HART data to Modbus TCP for easy integration into almost any host system.

The integrated WLAN can serve as the backhaul connection. This allows gateway field installation closer to monitored devices. It also enables you to create a “clustered” network topology which effectively creates several smaller WirelessHART networks with a wireless connection to the host system.

To maintain a secure connection, the gateway uses 801.22i(WPA2) standard with 128-bit AES encryption to protect the WLAN data. The WLAN transceiver can also be disabled, and the best connection made via the wired Ethernet port.

Complete gateway specifics are yours free.
