Commissioning is getting easier, if you know the quality of WirelessHART connections. This is one of the reasons that Pepperl+Fuchs' WirelessHART gateway has been improved due to new software. With the flexible MODBUS mapping, a detailed network analysis, and possibilities to optimize the network, the WirelessHART gateway is a perfect device for you that is at the core of each WirelessHART application.
The graphical network diagnostic, topology view, is found in the web interface.
Each WirelessHART field device or field devices upgraded by the WirelessHART adapter can be integrated. You benefit from simple and fast network diagnostics, save time at commissioning, and are completely independent from the control system. You can read connection quality on the basis of the color. Green is 'very good' while Red means 'no connection'. The thickness of the displayed connection indicates the quantity of connections along its path. You also have the possibility to view all existing connections, all used connections, or only the used connections of a device. With Topology View, you gain a quick overview of the quality of your WirelessHART network and you can easily identify and eliminate any possible single point of failure. This enables you to save quite a bit of time at commissioning.
