  • 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.

  • Energy Measurement Tools Make Processes More Efficient While Reducing Costs
    Energy Measurement Tools Make Processes More Efficient While Reducing Costs

    Rising energy prices have made accurate energy measurement a hot topic in recent decades. The need for accurate measurement technologies extends to many different application areas, including heating and cooling; compressed air; steam production and distribution; heavy fuel oil consumption; energy monitoring; and custody transfer. In response, new technology is being developed that integrates tasks previously requiring several measurement devices.
