FIELDVUER HF300 Series HARTR Filters

The HF300 Series HARTR filters (figure 1) are used HART COMMUNICATION
with HART based FIELDVUER Instrumentation, CONNECTIONS
such as the DVC5000, DVC6000, or DVC2000
Series digital valve controllers. These filters are used
when this instrumentation is connected to a 4 to 20
mA dc control system output that was not designed
for the HART (Highway Addressable Remote CONTROL SYSTEM
Transducer) communication protocol. CONNECTIONS

The filter receives a 4 to 20 mA dc current signal

from the control system and passes the signal,
uninterrupted, to the field device. A third connection
to the filter provides HART communication to a
device that accepts HART signals, such as a Type
2530H1 HART Interchange multiplexer or Model 375 W8283 / IL

Field Communicator. The wire pair carrying the

HART signals can be wired directly to the device. Figure 1. FIELDVUER HF300 Series HARTR Filter

does not provide a filter, but it does provide a

the instrument is adequate. See appropriate instrument instruction manual for
procedures for determining voltage available. Filtering ensures proper
communication and simplifies connecting a HART communicator or HART
interchange multiplexer.

Ordering Information
When ordering, specify the filter type number.
The HART filter increases the impedance.
Therefore, placing a filter between the control Note
