HART Multi-drop Network Interface Module for Quantum, non-CE


Discontinued: No new product for sale. More Info

The HART Multi-drop Network Interface Module is a backplane-compatible module that allows Quantum processors to interface easily with HART compatible devices. Devices commonly supporting the protocol include pressure, temperature, flow transmitters, as well as other similar instruments commonly found in the process (and other) industry.

Caractéristiques Avantages

The PTQ-HART module interfaces up to 15 devices on each of four HART Multi-drop channels with a Quantum processor. The four ports on the module support HART master commands to interface with slave devices on their own networks. Each port is individually configurable. Compatible devices include a large array of field devices including pressure, temperature, metering, and many other instruments.

Data is exchanged between the HART network and the Quantum processor backplane using the internal database contained in the module. The database is user-defined and stored in the module to hold the data required by the protocol.


The HART protocol is supported by major instrument suppliers and the HART Communication Foundation (HCF).

The PTQ-HART module is the perfect solution for industrial applications in chemical and refining operations, to gas and liquid distribution systems, and remote offshore monitoring stations are addressing virtually all aspects of control, data acquisition, and maintenance.

Today, HART is the most widely used digital communications protocol for instruments in the process control industry. More than 105 manufacturers support HART with a choice of more than 170 different field instruments.
