HART Interface for PC

HI311

DataSheet

Research Corporation HART Interface for PC HI311 DataSheet Features • Interface your PC to a HART

Features

Interface your PC to a HART network

Works with HART products from multiple manufacturers

System powered: no external power supply required

Tested isolation of 1500V DC between the field instrument and EIA-RS232 adaptor pins

6 foot cable with pinch connectors for easy access to the HART line

Very low leakage (Max 10 u A @ 35V dc) current to the process network

Standard DB9 serial interface

Functional Description

The HI311HART Serial Interface provides a complete physical link between a HART® Field Instrument and any PC or laptop equipped with a serial port. The interface is fully self contained, and requires no direct power supply.

The HI311 is designed for use with any software driver that meets the conditions shown in Table 1, or with SmarResearch's CONF401 HART® Configuration Software.

The SMAR HI311 provides a direct interface between a standard serial communication port on a PC and a HART® network. The HI311 is compatible with HART® communication environments, and uses a minimum number of signals from the serial port.

NOTE:

The HI311 does not support operations using a USB to RS232 converter. Passing of all control signals cannot be guaranteed using these devices. For applications requiring a USB port, use the Smar Research HI321 USB to HART interface.

Signal Functions

TxD (pin #3) TRANSMITTED DATA

Computer output signal.

HI311 Input Signal.

Defines serial data being transmitted.

Nominal speed = 1200bps.

RxD (pin #2) RECEIVED DATA

HI311 output signal.

Computer input signal.

Defines the serial data being detected at the HART® instrument line.

Nominal speed = 1200bps.

RTS (pin #7) REQUEST TO SEND

Computer output signal.

HI311 Input Signal.

Toggled by the computer to define the direction of data flow through the modem.

RTS = TRUE: Modem is transmitting to the HART® instrument. RTS = FALSE: Modem is receiving from the HART® instrument.

CTS (pin #8) CLEAR TO SEND

HI311 output signal.

Computer input signal.

Connected internally to the RTS line of the DB9 connector.

DSR (pin #6) DATA SET READY

HI311 output signal.

Computer input signal.

Connected internally to the DTR line of the DB9 connector.

DCD (pin #1) DATA CARRIER DETECTED

HI311 output signal.

Computer input signal.

Connected to the carrier detection signal from the modem.

Will show TRUE when the modem detects frequency activity on the HART® instrument line.

DTR (pin #4) DATA TERMINAL READY

Computer output signal.

HI311 Input Signal.

Primary source of power.

To insure proper operation of the interface, it must be at V+ (state TRUE) at all times.

When DTR goes to 0 Volts, power will be drawn from TxD and RTS.

GND (pin #5) SIGNAL GROUND

Connects the computer’s ground wire to the ground wire of the HI311.

This ground signal is isolated from the HART® instrument line.

Tested for a minimum isolation of 1500Vdc between the DB9 pins and the HART® line pins.

Signal Definitions

Figures 2 and 3 below give the operating charecteristics of the HART modulator at 1200 Hz and 2200 Hz. Both were plotted using an HP digitizing oscilloscope connected to a 24Vdc power

supply, a 250 Ohm shunt resistor, and a pressure transmitter.

Figure 4 shows the test circuit.
