Advantages of a PC-based HART communicatorDownload Now
It's now time to upgrade to a new HART communicator. Your old handheld HART communicator is obsolete and receives limited support. You shop around and find that it costs between $3,000 and $7,000 for a new handheld HART communicator. A Google search reveals a PC-based alternative. Will the PC alternative perform as required? What should you look for?
The PC-based HART communicator has been around for many years, but until recently, it has not been able to replace the handheld HART communicator. The main reason is that it could not communicate at the DD level with all the devices in the DD library. Recent developments have eliminated that problem, and now is a good time to review the capabilities of a PC-based HART communicator.
