WirelessHARTô solutionsCooper Bussmannís new ELPRO 315 offers reliable and secure connectivity from multiple WirelessHART sensor networks, as well as allowing secure, non-disruptive expansion of the network as needed. The ELPRO 315-WH-GT WirelessHART Gateway establishes the connection between wireless field instrumentation and centralized Asset Management or Distributed Control Systems. Serving as the central controller and security manager for low power wireless mesh field instruments operating under the WirelessHART standard, the 315-WH-GT ensures performance through network optimization and intelligent routing. Its security manager provides one of the most secure mesh networks available, with end-to-end encryption, message integrity checking, and device authentication. Connectivity to the host system can be provided either via hardwired LAN connection or secure wireless LAN (802.11b/g or 802.11a). The 315-WH-GT Gateway can also be coupled with the 315-WH-DC WirelessHART Data Concentrator to create a high performance wireless backbone that offers secure connectivity from multiple WirelessHART sensor networks, as well as allowing non-disruptive expansion of the network as needed. Capable of operating as a data concentrator, the ELPRO 315-WH-DC offers node to node deterministic mesh network repeatability to further range, coupled with multiple channel spacing options to increase network scalability of HART-based networks. Additional Modbus server capability allows integration into legacy systems that do not support HART protocol. Operating up to 108Mbps, the secure two-way wireless communication allows the extension of HART-based communication to challenging environments typical of industrial monitoring and control applications.
