Utthunga’s uHART FDI Communication Server

FDI Communication server can be thought of a dedicated OPC UA server providing access to the underlying field device networks. HART-IP can carry data from both WirelessHART and HART field instrumentation to enable simplified system integration and to support the growing plant infrastructure of wireless sensors. It allows future-proofing your plants to aging HART enabled devices.

Utthunga’s uHART-IP FDI Communication server defines a standardized interface to allow integration of the HART-IP protocol with the FDI enabled host systems and clients. The FDI host supporting the GPE sends a request embedded in a generic message format to the HART-IP FDI Communication server, which communicates with the underlying HART device and sends the response back to the FDI host.

Our uHART-IP Communication Server is compatible with HART 7 devices. It is designed to handle delayed responses efficiently. This keeps the loop or the session active at all or required times. The server is also based on the certified OPC stack, which makes it very reliable. The product is compatible with FCG_TS62769 and OPC specification v1.04. We also offer scan support and guarantee that our servers provide safe and secure communication.

Our uHART-IP FDI communication server is compliant with the following FDI specifications:

  • FCG_TS62769-7_CommunicationDevices_1.0.5
  • FCG_TS62769-109-1_Profiles_HART_1.0.5
  • OPC UA SDK v1.0.2

The HART-IP Communication Server has been tested using Emerson Wireless HART Gateway and FieldComm Group’s (FCG) reference host. The server is compatible with Windows (7/8/10, Server 2012, Server 2016), Linux as well.

Energy Harvesting in Wireless Sensor Network

Introduction Wired sensors connected to control systems via industrial communication protocols like HART or even a simple 4–20 mA loop take up the required energy supplied over the cabling. It is estimated that wiring takes up majority of the total sensor installation cost. On the other hand, wireless sensors used for industrial control and automation […]

Role of Protocol Simulators In Product Development And R&D

What are Protocol Simulators? The term “simulator” means “imitator of a situation or a process”. In the digital sense, we can say that a protocol simulator or a network simulator is a computer-generated simulation of a protocol before bringing the product to the market. There is a paradigm shift in industries like industrial OEMs, discrete, […]
