For a significantly increasing number of users, whether planning to expand or update an automation or safety system, improve a plant asset management system, or start a new plant project, HART Communication is the protocol of choice.
No matter the project evaluation criteria—risk, system integration, training, interoperability, funding, flexibility, security, resources, required skills, engineering time, existing systems, schedule or any other considerations—in process automation, all roads lead to HART!
Why? HART is the world's number one and most often selected communication technology. HART delivers the valuable process and device information users need with low risk and low cost. HART is the right choice—today and into the future.
Today's business environment demands doing more with less. HART Communication works 24/7 to do just that—but only if you "get connected" to use the valuable information from your HART devices. When you get connected, you unlock all the real-time diagnostics, intelligent capabilities and power of HART Communication to help you save time and money through predictive maintenance, process optimization and avoiding unscheduled downtime.
Connecting plant control, safety and asset management systems to the intelligence in HART devices benefits all phases of the plant life cycle and, ultimately, your bottom line. In the following pages, read compelling, real-world examples that demonstrate the benefits of getting connected. See how HART works now and will work in the future, and find out how WirelessHART can enable your operation to implement the latest advances in smart instrumentation.
Users worldwide are sending a clear message to industry suppliers by purchasing and deploying HART-enabled products in overwhelming numbers. They choose HART because it is the simple, reliable, secure, low-risk, interoperable, cost-effective intelligent communication protocol that they know and trust—the global standard that delivers value and dependability year after year. Suppliers are responding with new and increasingly more intelligent HART-enabled products, many of which are described in this supplement.
Even a relatively small investment to get connected delivers big results, providing actionable information that will improve your plant operation and lower costs. Join other users who are gaining significant benefits for their companies when they get connected to the intelligent information in HART devices. They have discovered, as you will, that it's true: For intelligent process automation…all roads lead to HART!
