Multi-protocol wireless adaptor
Yokogawa’s multi-protocol wireless adaptor enables wired field instruments or analytical sensors to be used as ISA100 Wireless devices, and will release models that support communications based on the HART and RS485 Modbus standards. To facilitate the introduction of field wireless systems in plants, Yokogawa plans to release additional models that will cover other standards.
It may be used with any type of wired field instrument or analytical sensor commonly used in plants, including those used to monitor temperature, pressure, liquid level, or vibration, or detecting gas.
The future multi-protocol wireless adaptors are intended for wired HART and RS485 Modbus communications, both of which are widely used in plants. Future models are intended to be compliant with other wired field communications standards like Foundation fieldbus and Profibus.
The battery in the multi-protocol wireless adaptor can also power the field instrument or analytical sensor, eliminating the need for wiring. The multi-protocol wireless adaptor uses a large-capacity lithium-ion battery and features an indicator on the host system that shows the remaining estimated battery life.
