Smart Embedded Systems HART Ethernet advanced physical layer (Ethernet-APL) development kit


Smart Embedded Systems' Ethernet advanced physical layer (APL) development kit for HART uses TI's IEEE 802.3cg and Ethernet APL compliant DP83TD510E 10BASE-T1L Ethernet PHY to provide intrinsically safe communications. The development kit includes a HART transmitter board and the 3-port Ethernet APL to Ethernet switch board. The individual boards are also available separately.

  • Based on DP83TD510E IEEE 802.3cg 10BASE-T1L Ethernet PHY
  • Eases conversion of existing HART transmitters to Ethernet APL
  • Operates as either HART-IP transmitter or HART gateway/bridge
  • Offers multiple interfaces for flexible operation with existing systems
