HART Foundation Introduces HART-IP

The HART Communication Foundation (HCF), introduced HART-IP, which enables the HART protocol to run over any IP-based connection and deliver HART data at the speed of Ethernet. It supports intelligent device management for smart process instrumentation. It simplifies system integration by eliminating manual data mapping. And it enables large-scale, plant-wide, wireless sensor applications, and allows tight integration of field instruments to enterprise asset management systems.
 
HART-IP connects to the plant networking infrastructure, enables enterprise-wide access to information, and provides fast access to measurement and device diagnostics. Using their existing network infrastructure, industrial users now can integrate intelligent device measurement and diagnostic information with their productivity, planning, historian or other applications anywhere in the world.

According to the foundation, HART-IP simplifies the system connection configuration, provides all available device data, and eliminates mapping of registers. It also reduces the system integration burden by providing remote and plantwide Internet access to device analytics and process measurements using the plant network infrastructure. Finally, it ties together intelligent HART devices, multiplexers and WirelessHART gateways into one plant-wide, intelligent device management solution that works with any size plant and all HART-enabled devices.

"An IMS Research study from February 2013 reports use of industrial Ethernet will almost double from 2011 to 2016," says Ted Masters, HFC president and CEO. "HART-IP addresses this growing industry demand for accessing data over the Ethernet."

He added, "HART-IP offers the most straightforward way to access all the HART information available in a HART device. It allows the information from HART devices to be brought up to the enterprise level easily, without the need to go through any translation processes and with no loss of information."
