HART functionality added.

ProComSol has released Rev. 4.9c of their popular DevCom2000 Smart Device Communicator Software for HART instrumentation. This revision adds HART-IP functionality to the software. 

According to Jeffrey Dobos, President of ProComSol, Ltd, “The addition of HART-IP provides a quick and easy way to configure and monitor HART devices on WirelessHART networks without leaving the office. Full DD access means the user does not need to go into the plant to view or change the configuration of a device connected to the WirelessHART network. The time and cost savings will be huge.”

HART-IP is simply the HART protocol rendered over Ethernet. To access the WirelessHART network, the user only needs the IP Address of the WirelessHART Gateway. A click of a button then provides a list of all the devices on the network including adapters, repeaters, and instruments. The user then double clicks on the device of interest. From there the entire device menu structure is displayed as defined in the device DD and the user can quickly get to the parameter of interest. No modem is required, just Ethernet access to the WirelessHART Gateway.
