HART Protocol Host App, Class 3 Basic
Fast, Simple Setup for HART field devices
Microflex HART Host Class 3B is a software app for Windows based PCs used to commission and calibrate HART field devices.
HART Host is compatible with all Microflex HART protocol modems and all HART field devices.
The HART specification describes several host conformance classes. Class 3 can perform basic configuration of any field device and is the minimum level required to be classified as a "Generic Host". It supports the HART protocol common practice and universal commands so it will work with any HART device. It does not include EDD or FDI integration but in most cases the extra complexity is not required - making HART Host a simple solution.
HART Host Class 3B requires Microsoft Windows 7 or higher operating system and a USB or serial HART protocol modem.
