HART-only device connected to HART AI channel

HART-only device connected to HART AI channel

HART-only device connected to HART AI channel

Has anyone ever connected a HART-only device (i.e. without 4-20mA) onto a HART AI module?

RE: HART-only device connected to HART AI channel

No. It's not a functional concept.

The FSK modulated HART signal is superimposed on the current signal.

HART infers a current signal as well. For point-to-point, it's a 4-20mA signal. For multidrop, it's 4mA fixed. But there's always a current signal.

RE: HART-only device connected to HART AI channel

Why not just make a dummy current loop using fixed resistors then add the FSK Hart signal in series. The total loop resistance could be about 2k with the HART imposed over a fraction of that. You might have to experiment a little, perhaps some small capacitors to couple the signal across the resistance.

White Paper - PLM and ERP: Their Respective Roles in Modern Manufacturing
Leading manufacturers are aligning their people, processes, and tools from initial product ideation through to field service. They do so by providing access to product and enterprise data in the context of each person’s domain expertise. However, it can be complicated and costly to unite engineering with the factory and supply chain. Download Now
