HART to Modbus Conversion
The HCS HART Concentrator System converts a HART digital signal to a serial (RS-485) Modbus RTU communication protocol. This permits up to 16 smart HART-capable transmitters and valves to interface directly with Modbus-based monitoring and control systems.
The HCS interfaces all HART parameters to Modbus. This includes the ability to monitor primary and non-primary (second, third and fourth) process variables from smart multivariable mass flow, pressure PH and temperature transmitters; Coriolis, magnetic, ultrasonic and vortex flowmeters; radar and hydrostatic level transmitters; and valve positioners and damper operators. The HCS can be programmed in minutes, and comes in an industrial metal and RFI-protected housing that snaps onto standard DIN-style rails.
