Millions of devices around the world use the HART standard for process measurement applications, but the HART Communications Foundation estimates that as many as 90 percent of these are stranded, making the data inaccessible. WirelessHART is part of HART7, the newest revision of the HART standard. This new technology provides an easy and secure means of accessing this data, without the hassle of running wire and cable. WirelessHART makes the HART protocol more usable, flexible and cost-effective, but there are still some complications. Larger networks in particular might experience problems, due to increased chatter. Creating a clustered network is one solution. A WirelessHART gateway with WLAN connection can provide a secure wireless backhaul connection, increasing the system's flexibility even more.
