  • All WirelessHART Devices Are Not Created Equal
    All WirelessHART Devices Are Not Created Equal

    Though they all must support routing functionality, some devices do it better than others.

    Routing consumes more energy, so the lifetime of the battery will be affected.  Therefore, a device with a battery that is inexpensive, has a long lifetime, and is easy to change would be ideal. With all this considered, a WirelessHART temperature transmitter is a suitable option to operate as a repeater.
