Over 110 field device descriptions have been registered with the HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) Communication Foundation, according to the winter edition of HCF’s HART Line newsletter.
The DDs cover more than 80 current field instruments from 26 manufacturers, says the HCF. A complete listing is posted on http://www.ccsi.com/hart/.
The HCF maintains that HART must not be regarded as an interim solution in the absence of a single fieldbus standard. Jim Cobb, HCF chairman: `HART will continue to provide a highly capable technology at a low cost where totally distributed control strategies are not desired or practical’.
