Web servers open up remote monitoring of HART and Profibus devices

28 November 2006

Endress+Hauser’s range of Fieldgate web servers enable remote monitoring, remote diagnosis and remote configuration of HART and PROFIBUS field devices via Ethernet TCP/IP, telephone lines (analogue) or mobile communications (GSM/GPRS). Measured values are available via the internet, the company intranet, GSM/GPRS or even public switched telephone network (PSTN), allowing display in a standard web browser without the need for additional software.

Perfect for web-based inventory management, Fieldgate allows raw material suppliers to remotely check tank or silo levels at any time and account for them in production planning. By monitoring the configured level limits, Fieldgate is able to activate the next supply, from a simple purchasing requisition via email through to a fully automatic order administration in a variety of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems such as SAP, so that business processes can be organised simply and efficiently. Time or event-controlled email and SMS messages can be sent, allowing improved stock and supply chain management.

Fieldgate provides simple remote configuration of field instrumentation via standard software such as ReadWin 2000, ToF Tool-Fieldtool, FieldCare etc. The standardised data transfer formats allow for further analysis and simple processing of measured data through to integration into more complex planning systems. Fieldgate is easily accessed by any web-compatible computer, without the need for additional software, as it supports standard Internet software protocols (http, TCP/IP etc). What’s more, it is available as an intrinsically safe version (EEx ia) for connection to hazardous areas and complies with IEC 61508.
