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.
