To set up your WirelessHART Test System to run the wireless TML Tests, connect one Access Point (AP) to a USB port on the Test System. Currently, only one AP is needed to run WirelessHART tests. Do not connect the second one. 


Connect a registered RS-232 HART modem between the maintenance port of your WirelessHART device and the serial port on the Test System that is designated for the HART Master. All TML tests first communicate with the WirelessHART device via FSK and perform the initial provisioning and setup before the wireless part of the test starts. So, before starting any TML test, it is essential to connect one registered RS-232 HART modem between the Test System and the device and also connect one AP to a USB port of the Test System. Without both connections in place, the TML test would fail or abort immediately.


The setup would look like this: 



Once the setup is complete, type "lstmlscr" (without quotes) on the Linux terminal. The list of TML tests implemented on the Test System will be displayed. Type the name of the TML test from the displayed list that you wish to run exactly as displayed, then press <Enter> to run the test.

 

No automated Post Processor exists for wireless tests. Currently, all evaluation of wireless tests is done by manually analyzing the radio traffic captured by Wi-Analys. If you have questions about TML tests, please open a Support Ticket (select Product Support, WirelessHART Test System) for assistance. Include the Serial Number or Service Tag number of your HART Test System in your ticket for faster resolution.


You will need to order Wi-Analys (KIT-190) separately.  The software for that tool is installed on a Windows PC (Windows 10, 64-bits). To capture the radio traffic generated by a TML test (both the test stimulus packets and the device response) in wireless test logs named uniquely for each TML test, configure the Wi-Analys (KIT-190) with the appropriate Network ID (0x8BCD) and Join Key (0x00008BCD000000000000000000000000) and start logging. 



Updating the Test System

If your Test System is subscribed the Product Service Program, you will receive updates. In the KIT-193 shipment, you will find a USB flash drive with the installation kit (tarball) for KIT-193 with instructions to install it on the Test System. You may receive updates via download, the same installation steps apply.
