Documenting Process Calibrator HART ModeIntroductionw WarningTo avoid electric shock, read the SafetyInformation in the 744 Users Manual beforeyou use the Fluke 744 Documenting ProcessCalibrator.With analog transmitters, you must make a hardwareadjustment during calibration. With HART (HighwayAddressable Remote Transducer) transmitters,adjustments are by remote command. These adjustmentsrequire the use of a communication tool as well as acalibrator. The Fluke 744, hereafter called “calibrator,”provides communication and calibration functions in onetool.This manual describes how to use HART mode, which isactive when the calibrator is communicating over its serialHART interface to a HART transmitter. Refer to the744 Users Manual for safety, analog mode operatinginstructions, specifications, and other general information.All of the calibrator functions described in the 744 UsersManual are available and can be used with HARTtransmitters. The only transmitters addressed in thismanual are HART transmitters.1

Documenting Process Calibrator HART ModeConnecting to a HART TransmitterConnecting to a HART Transmitter4.To connect to and begin to communicate with a HARTtransmitter, refer to Figure 1 and proceed as follows:The calibrator provides loop power through aninternal series resistance of 250 Ω.NoteIf you only want a communication connection toa transmitter that is powered in a loop, simplyclip the HART alligator clips to the loop powerterminals on the transmitter, press r, and youare done.1.Connect the calibrator mA jacks to the loop powerterminals of the transmitter.2.Plug the HART interface cable into the SERIALPORT, then connect the alligator clips to the sameterminals as in step 1. There is no right or wrongpolarity.3.Press the r key.NoteThe square-root symbol on r key is thereonly for calculator mode. At all other times, thereis no square-root function associated with ther key.If the transmitter is not powered by a loop powersupply, press the Loop Power softkey to activate 24Vloop power.NoteIf the calibrator shows a measurement of 0 mA,check for reversed current leads.If an external loop power supply is used, theremust be a resistance of between 230 Ω and270 Ω connected in series with the external loopsupply and the transmitter.5.The calibrator tries Poll Address 0 (single transmitterper loop). If no connection is made, press the Pollsoftkey to scan Poll Addresses 1 through 15(multidrop).6.Once the calibrator establishes communication withthe transmitter, the Active Device screen appears. Inthe case of a multidrop configuration, you mustchoose a transmitter from a list, and press e.3

744HART Mode Users GuideSupported vs. Generic TransmittersThe calibrator communicates with virtually all HARTtransmitters. In addition, the calibrator is programmed touse device-dependent commands for a selection of HARTtransmitters and their software versions. These are“supported transmitters.” All other transmitters are“generic.”2.If the calibrator is not connected to a HARTtransmitter, press the r key followed by MoreChoices.3.Press the Device Revs softkey. The Browser screenappears.Table 1 shows the operations that are available forsupported vs. generic transmitters in single point andmultidrop configurations.NoteSensor trim is provided for supportedtransmitters, with a few exceptions, as identifiedin the list of supported transmitters that you canview on the display.pe07s.bmp4.Press u or d to highlight the desired manufacturer,and press e.

This is where you can view information about thesensor in the transmitter, including serial number, limits,and span. The limits shown are the absolute limits for thesensor. (The Upper Range Value (URV) and LowerRange Value (LRV) are different, and are viewable andprogrammable through the Basic Setup screen.)From the Active Device screen press the Setup andDevice Identification softkeys to view information about thetransmitter.

744HART Mode Users GuideService OperationsThe Service softkey provides access to Loop Test,Pressure Zero Trim (where applicable), Output Trim, andSensor Trim operations. For generic transmitters, onlyLoop Test, Output Trim, and Pressure Zero Trim areavailable. (See Table 1.) The trim (adjustment)operations are described later in this manual.NoteLoop Test and Output Trim are not available ifthe transmitter is in multidrop mode.Interaction between Analog Mode andHART ModeAnalog mode is normal calibrator operation, as describedin the 744 Users Manual. HART mode is activated whenyou press the r (HART) key. This action startscommunication over the HART interface.You can switch between HART and analog modes easilyby pressing r (or pressing M to go to analog modefrom HART mode), gaining the benefit of having thetransmitter automatically,set up analog mode forappropriate measure and source functions, if desired.Abort SoftkeyThe Abort softkey terminates the communicationoperation underway, and returns control to the previousscreen. From the Active Device screen, Abort calls up thebrowser, in which you can view the list of supportedtransmitters.For supported transmitters, the transition to analog modegoes to the MEASURE/SOURCE screen, which providesan easy way to proceed with an “as found” calibration.For generic transmitters, the transition to analog modeinvolves choosing the MEASURE or SOURCE screen,from which you select the appropriate function.For supported or generic transmitters, when you pressr to return to HART mode, the Active Device screen isdisplayed. The HART serial communication connectionremains active as you switch between HART and analogmodes.12

A HART transmitter has thethree stages shown in Figure 3.In 744 HART mode, adjusting the Input stage is calledSensor Trim. Adjusting the Output stage is called OutputTrim. Both adjustments are made from the Service menu.Depending on how the transmitter is used in y
