Going Digital while using the Analog Infrastructure
Entering the world of IIoT and Industry 4.0
In PA (Process Automation) the majority of process instrumentation makes use of a 4-20 mA infrastructure. With the rapid development of computing power with a small footprint Instrument intelligence became an easy to implement and affordable solution.
Over the world there are more than 30 million field instruments installed with HART technology. Making the field device a SMART instrument that can participate in the next generation of PA. IIoT (Industrial Internet of Thing) and Industry 4.0 rely on SMART Instruments to enable a more predictive plant where Reliability and Efficiency can be increased due to the availability of diagnostic information.
