Wireless adapter enables IIoT for hazardous areas

The new THUM Adapter (photo) has been certified as explosion-proof for in U.S. and Canada. The wireless adapter, designed to operate in hazardous areas, retrieves valuable and formerly stranded data to provide insight for planned maintenance and avoid costly unplanned shutdowns. The device converts a wired HART signal to WirelessHART, and transmits the wireless data to a Gateway. The Gateway connects to the host systems via an industry-standard wired connection, usually Modbus or Ethernet. The diagnostic and process data accessed by the THUM Adapter provides users with insight to their process and helps them plan maintenance to avoid unplanned shutdowns. The THUM Adapter connects directly onto HART devices via threaded conduits, removing the need for a barrier. — Emerson Automation Solutions, Shakopee, Minn.
