Austin, Texas, USA - The HART® Communication Foundation (www.hartcomm.org) announces that two WirelessHART® products have been named by industry users as the best among automation, control and instrumentation products introduced during 2011. The products, recognized as being exceptional for technological advancement, service to the industry and market impact, are the Rosemount 708 wireless acoustic transmitter from Emerson and the RAD-WHA-1/2NPT WirelessHART adapter from Phoenix Contact.
"We are pleased by users' recognition of these WirelessHART products and by the overwhelming industry acceptance that WirelessHART technology is receiving around the world," says Foundation Executive Director Ron Helson. "The WirelessHART standard is a major innovation for the industry that introduced a new era for process automation and has made a significant impact on the global market."
Built on the solid foundation of the HART Protocol, the WirelessHART standard provides simple, reliable, secure wireless communication for process measurement and control. The number and range of WirelessHART products and solutions is growing at an astounding rate. Major suppliers include ABB, Emerson, Endress+Hauser, MACTek, Pepperl+Fuchs, Phoenix Contact, R. Stahl, Siemens and others.
The WirelessHART standard (IEC 62591) supports self-organizing, full multi-hop and multi-path mesh topologies and requires no specialized tools or expert communication protocol settings for deployment. The technology is easy to implement, provides built-in reliability in all industrial environments, and employs 128-bit AES encryption, multi-tiered, always-on security to protect the network and the data being transferred at all times. WirelessHART builds on proven international standards-the HART Communication Protocol (IEC 61158), EDDL (IEC 61804-3) and IEEE 802.15.4.
The HART Communication Foundation (www.hartcomm.org) is the technology owner and standards organization for the HART Communication Protocol. Founded in 1993, the Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit, membership organization providing support for the HART Communication technology and standards worldwide. The Foundation is supported by a global membership of more than 270 companies. HART Communication is the leading technology for process measurement and control with more than 35 million devices installed worldwide.
