The HCF demonstrated Wirelesshart technology, an interoperable wireless-communication standard for the process industries, during the Instrument Forum organised by Petronas.

The Forum provides a platform for the Petronas Instrumentation and Control fraternity to share best practices, lessons learned and technology applications within the group.

Industry specialists from Hart Communication Foundation member companies, ABB, Emerson Process Management, Endress+Hauser, Pepperl+Fuchs and Siemens participated in the Hart booth at the Forum.

These manufacturers provided the gateways and devices used in live demonstrations of the Wirelesshart standard that included process monitoring, device configuration, calibration and diagnostics, and secure commissioning.

Visitors to the Hart booth learned about Wirelesshart application solutions and how the technology can help lower operating costs, reduce downtime and move to a predictive-maintenance strategy.

Visitors were shown features including coexistence with other wireless networks, self-organising and self-healing mesh network and the ability to add devices point by point.

Demonstrations in the Hart booth showed how process variables from different types of Wirelesshart devices from a variety of vendors are integrated in the same system using the same standard commands as for wired Hart devices.

Wirelesshart technology provides a secure way to deploy new points of measurement and control, enabling users to quickly and easily gain the benefits of wireless technology while maintaining compatibility with existing Hart devices, tools and systems.

Wirelesshart technology is backward compatible with currently installed Hart devices and is supported by existing Hart tools, training and personnel, providing additional capabilities and ways to access asset-management information in existing and new monitoring and control applications.
