HART Point to Point Configuration

In point-to-point mode, the traditional 4–20 mA signal is used to communicate one process variable, while additional process variables, configuration parameters, and other device data are transferred digitally using the HART protocol.

The 4–20 mA analog signal is not affected by the HART signal and can be used for control in the normal way.

The HART communication digital signal gives access to secondary variables and other data that can be used for operations, commissioning, maintenance, and diagnostic purposes.
