Comment Processing & Handling

These actuators now support HART communication  

By mjsmaling |

A HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) interface option is now available for this company’s AC.2 and ACExC.2 controls. The adoption of the HART protocol is said to strengthen the company’s position as a provider of a comprehensive range of leading-edge actuation solutions, with supporting technologies. In compliance with the IEC 61158 standard, the HART communication protocol retains the simple and classic 4–20-mA standard signal for analog data transmission, while allowing for digital communication modulated as an additional signal to the analog signal. Electronic Device Descriptions (EDD) for AC. 2 controls with HART interface will be available shortly. — AUMA Riester GmbH & Co. KG, Müllheim/Baden, Germany
