The open HART protocol improves the flow of diagnostic information from process instruments including optical flame detectors and combustible/toxic gas detectors.
User benefits of Det-Tronics HART-enabled flame detectors and gas detectors include faster commissioning and enhanced maintenance efficiency. Typical flame and/or gas detector configuration options accessible via HART communications include:
- Real-time clock setting
- Selection of calibration-gas types
- Zero and span gas calibration
- Optics cleanliness/optical integrity test information
- Custom descriptor information, such as installed date, by whom, where, and type of gas to be detected
