Endress+Hauser’s SWA70 WirelessHART Adapter allows signals from connected 4-20 mA/HART field devices to be transmitted via wireless to a WirelessHART Fieldgate. Powered by either a battery pack or power supply unit, and available for use in both hazardous and non-hazardous areas, it is suitable for applications such as:E+H Wireless Adapter Photo

    • Parallel transmission of process information from an existing wired installation for inventory monitoring or other monitoring tasks
    • Collection of process information from rotating or mobile installations
    • Integration of new measuring points into existing systems
    • Applications with environmental limitations to cabling (e.g., electromagnetic fields or limited accessibility)

The flexible adapter concept has the advantage of being vendor-independent and compatible with all 4-20 mA/HART field devices. In addition to being mounted directly, the adapter can be remotely connected to the field device, thus increasing signal performance. Available with polyester, aluminum and 316L stainless steel housings, it can be used in many applications and environments.  When operating in multi-drop mode, one adapter can be connected to up to four HART field devices.
