AUMA: HART Interface Advancement

auma HARTElectric actuator manufacturer AUMA announces that a HART interface option can be ordered with immediate effect for the company’s AC .2 and ACExC .2 controls. The adoption of the popular communication protocol by AUMA strengthens the company’s position as a provider of a comprehensive range of leading-edge actuation solutions, with supporting technologies.

In compliance with the IEC 61158 standard, the HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) communication protocol retains the simple and classic 4 – 20 mA standard signal for analogue data transmission, while allowing for digital communication modulated as an additional signal to the analogue signal.

A major advantage according to AUMA, which is a member of HCF (HART Communication Foundation), is that this facilitates reading additional parameters and diagnostic data from field devices, such as actuators, using the existing 4 – 20 mA infrastructure.

Electronic Device Descriptions (EDD) for AC. 2 controls with HART interface will be available shortly from AUMA for integration with Siemens Simatic PDM, Emerson AMS and Emerson 475 Field Communicator. Following device integration in the appropriate interpreter, the actuator and controls’ most important parameter and diagnostic information, relating to commissioning, configuration and Asset Management, are available without additional programming.
