Detectors communicate via HART protocol

02 September 2009

Det-Tronics has launched flame detectors and gas detectors that use the HART communication protocol. The announcement came as Det-Tronics added HART functionality to its X9800, X2200, and X5200 flame detectors.

The HART protocol permits digital signals carrying information to be transmitted simultaneously with the 4-20 mA analog signal.

The enhancement leads to more efficient device set up because facilities can easily configure and adjust many detector variables to their needs.

Modifications to device settings are simple. By sending a command, a user initiates calibrations, reviews logs, or adjusts alarm and warning set points. In addition, users accurately assess device conditions (such as fault frequency) and prepare for tasks before venturing into the field.
Easily accessible, automatically generated event logs present viewable history and possibilities for improvements. Time- and date-stamped records of activities such as calibration and device replacement provide regulatory-compliance evidence for system audits.
