in reply to: Is HART rev. 6 downward compatible to rev. 5 ? posted by Marcel on 27 April 2006 at 08:06:45.
One more point here is.
Though HART6 is backward compatible,any HART 5 host can also talk to HART 6 devices,may be with few features not available.
Now the question is..
In multi drop mode I have a HART5 device and HART6 devices.Suppose HART 6 sends delayed response messages.What would happen?.
Note:HART5 devices are also in the network.....
How HART 5 host can handle this situation?.Can any experts explain??
