Revision 4.9c of the DevCom2000 Smart Device Communicator Software for HART instrumentation adds HART-IP functionality to the software. HART-IP is simply the HART protocol rendered over Ethernet. To access the wireless HART network, the user only needs the IP address of the wireless HART gateway. A click of a button then lists all the devices on the network, including adapters, repeaters, and instruments, and the user simply 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 wireless HART gateway.
