Expert’s answer: HART communication and Viator Bluetooth interface

The answer is simple: Yes, you can use it for your HART communication! The AMS device manager allows you to use the Viator Bluetooth interface to communicate with your field device.

Basically, you just need to set up the interface into the AMS device manager before you start to use it. Then, a connection is possible without a problem as soon as you have your interface in the software.

First, install the Viator drive. The drive will then create a virtual port to communicate with the AMS software. After you’ve installed a new system interface, you need to close the AMS device manager software and open the option to install a new system interface.

As soon as you found the port on the installation procedure, you will see the HART communication on the AMS device manager. You can then establish communication between the software and the field device.

We have HART field devices, but we only get the analog signal from the field! How should we upgrade the system to read the diagnostics? With PLC cards or a multiplexer or maybe a wireless adapter?

We need to decide which type of field network protocol to use in a new plant. Can we set up a HART network instead of a PB or FF network? What diagnostics will I lose?
