The HART communication protocol has been added to the SIPOS 5 range of electric actuators. Adoption of HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) technology extends SIPOS Aktorik’s digital capability for industrial valve applications.
HART is a bi-directional communication protocol; it is recognised as a global standard for sending and receiving digital information across analogue wires between smart devices and control or monitoring systems.
Commenting on the addition of the HART interface to its actuation technology, Michael Molle, SIPOS’ R&D Manager said: “Communication advancements to enhance processes and improve data access between SIPOS’ intelligent field devices and host systems are vital in today’s automation environments. “With its ability to provide simultaneous communication with 4-20mA signals, HART plays a critical communication role.
Benefits include its simplicity and high level of reliability for commissioning and calibration.” Installed in over 30 million devices worldwide, HART technology is widely recognised as one of the most popular communication protocols.
