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 Test System and the maintenance port of your WirelessHART device. All TML tests first communicate with the device via FSK and do initial provisioning and setup before the wireless part of the test starts.
It would look like this:
Once the setup is complete, run "hartmenu" from the Linux terminal and choose a TML test (wireless test) to run.
There is a preliminary Test Document in user1's Documents directory on the Test System that describes what each TML test does. That document will get installed when you install KIT-193. 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 contact us.
You will need to order Wi-Analys (KIT-190) separately. The software for that tool is installed on a Windows PC. To capture the radio traffic generated by the TML test (both the test stimulus packets and the device response) in wireless test logs, configure the Wi-Analys (KIT-190) with the appropriate Network ID and Join Key and start logging.
Updating the Test System
If you subscribe to 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.
