IEC confirms WirelessHART as a full international standard

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has approved the WirelessHART specification as a full international standard (IEC 62591Ed. 1.0).

According to the HART Communication Foundation, the IEC National Committee’s unanimous vote confirms the broad global support for WirelessHART technology as the international standard for wireless communication in process automation.

“The overwhelming approval by IEC fulfills the request of users for a single international wireless communication standard that is supported by major automation suppliers,” said HART Communication Foundation executive director, Ron Helson.

“WirelessHART technology has been confirmed by both users and suppliers to be a technically sound, reliable and secure solution for wireless communication in process automation.”

A number of WirelessHART-compatible products are available today from global suppliers including ABB, Emerson, Endress+Hauser, Pepperl+Fuchs, Siemens and others.
