FieldComm Group, in collaboration with author Romilly Bowden, has released an updated version of its HART Technical Overview – a technical manual intended to help readers understand the features and benefits of HART technology – how it works and what it can do.

HART is by far the largest digital communications technology deployed in the process industries with over 40 million compliant field instruments installed worldwide. It is the global standard for sending and receiving digital information across the 4-20 mA analog current loops that connect the vast majority of field instruments with distributed control systems. HART offers a reliable, long-term solution for plant operators who seek the benefits of intelligent devices with digital communication, while preserving existing investments in analog instrumentation and plant wiring.

FieldComm Group Director of HART Technology, Wally Pratt, said, “The majority of smart field devices installed worldwide are HART-enabled. But some new in the automation industry may need a refresher on this powerful technology. We have updated our HART Technical Overview to cover the full spectrum of HART-based solutions. This valuable document explains how HART technology can be easy to use and reliable for tasks ranging from calibration and commissioning of smart devices, to continuous online diagnostics and remote process monitoring.”

The HART Technical Overview has been extensively revised and now includes an overview of WirelessHART and HART-IP. The book is available for purchase on Amazon.
