March 10, 2020 — United Electric Controls, a producer of safety, alarm and shutdown technology, has announced that its Vanguard WirelessHART Gas Detector is now HART Registered. This registration ensures that all WirelessHART users will be able to add Vanguard device drivers the next time they update their device descriptor (DD) libraries. It also assures users that they can add Vanguard systems to existing WirelessHART networks.
The HART communication protocol is a digital communications technology deployed in the process industries with more than 40 million field instruments supporting HART technology installed worldwide. The FieldComm Group owns the HART specifications and provides specification development and training, as well as device registration.
The Vanguard WirelessHART detector uses a system of field-interchangeable gas sensor modules to detect methane (CH4), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), ammonia (NH3), and non-methane hydrocarbon gases.
