Both the new Sitrans P280 transmitter for pressure measurement and the Sitrans TF280 transmitter for temperature feature a WirelessHart interface and a graphical display with backlight function.
They are easy to operate via push buttons. An integrated battery supplies the transmitters with power for more than five years, with the exact number of remaining days being shown. All other Siemens process instruments without WirelessHart interfaces can be integrated into WirelessHart communication with the Sitrans AW200 adapter.
The adapter has an integrated battery which can also power a connected process instrument. If an external power supply is used, up to four conventional process instruments can be connected to the WirelessHart adapter simultaneously.
The new IE/WSN-PA LINK gateway manages the WirelessHart network with all its nodes and establishes the connection to the Simatic-based automation and control systems via Industrial Ethernet. The gateway is easy to configure via the integrated Web interface. Transmitter and adapter are commissioned and serviced using the Simatic PDM (Process Device Manager) which provides a simple, graphical and interactive quick-setup. With the Sitrans MDS (Maintenance Diagnostic Station) software, diagnostics data can be displayed transparently in a maintenance station, for example the wireless process instrumens and the devices connected to the Sitrans AW200 adapter.
The new WirelessHart product family is the result of collaboration by Siemens with the HART Communication Foundation (HCF). WirelessHart standard developed by HCF with the participation of Siemens, is the first industrial standard for wireless communication at the field level for use in the process industry. As a HCF member, Siemens played an important role right from the start in defining WirelessHart, contributing its comprehensive know-how and wide-reaching experience in process automation and wireless communication.
The new WirelessHart components are an integral element of the entire Industrial Wireless Communication portfolio from Siemens, available for a wide variety of sectors and covering a diverse range of industrial requirements regarding bandwidths, power consumption, safety and security, availability, distances to be covered and speed.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
