Wireless Solutions
Wireless communication quickly gains relevance in automation applications. For process automation, it is not the amount of data that poses challenges, but the distances to be bridged. Whenever the plant architecture does not allow conventional wiring, values are only accessible through frequent visits to the field.
WirelessHART offers a cost efficient solution. Measured values become available on a regular basis, which leads to increased quality and more economical operation of process plants.
In a WirelessHART based network, every participating device simultaneously works as a signal source and a repeater. Through the routing of the individual signals across the entire network, a wide network structure becomes possible

Gateways
The WirelessHART Gateways are the core elements of a WirelessHART Network.
The Network Manager determines the best primary and alternative paths between the single wireless sensors. It also determines which sensor is allowed to send a message on a specific channel. Network wireless communication is organized and optimized to provide the best performance in terms of speed, throughput, and energy consumption.
The WirelessHART gateways provide the connection to DCS or Asset management systems with an Ethernet and RS485 interface, which can transfer data via HART or MODBUS protocol.
The integration in DCS or AMS is done via DTM or DD.

Temperature Converter
The WirelessHART Temperature Converter provides two connections for temperature sensors (RTDs and TCs) and transmits the values directly into the network. The temperature converter is battery powered and also serves as a permanent router. Through user configured time intervals, the temperature measurements are performed and sent via the internal antenna. Depending on measurement intervals, battery life can last for years.

It is hard to image a time without reliable data flow and transparent communication regarding all production processes. The main objective of industrial communication is to connect all sections of a plant in a single networked system, from the management level right down to the field level. After all, using end-to-end, high-performance data networks increases the availability and efficiency of machines and plants. Pepperl+Fuchs sensors and field devices can be flexibly integrated into existing systems and provide transparent communication and increased productivity.

Today, industrial network communication also allows all business units to be integrated, making it a central component for the availability of data in the Industrial Internet of Things. To enable the reliable and efficient transmission of large quantities of data across all levels, Pepperl+Fuchs offers high-performance, intelligent components—including a full range of AS-Interface system components, a large selection of industrial Ethernet devices, Ethernet IO modules, various IO-Link devices, IO-Link masters, and interfaces.
