The HCS allows users of Yokogawa’s HART-based transmitters and flowmeters to convert each device’s HART digital signal to a standard Modbus RTU communication protocol.
Adding the HCS expands the agreement, which previously covered Moore Industries’ HIM HART Loop Monitor. Under the agreement, Yokogawa will sell application solutions that include its HART-based instruments and Moore Industries’ HART interface modules. Moore Industries will provide sales, marketing and application support to Yokogawa’s worldwide distribution channels.
The HART Concentrator System makes it possible for users to extract data from multiple Yokogawa HART devices. Up to 16 HART devices can be connected to a single HCS. This allows users, who may not have HART capability in their control systems, to acquire all digital process and diagnostic data from Yokogawa’s field instruments and send it via Modbus to a control system.
