Application Layer tests are run wirelessly only on WirelessHART devices. If your device is not a WirelessHART device, do not try to run these tests wirelessly. Please note that in addition to passing the Application Layer tests when run wirelessly, WirelessHART devices must also pass the Application Layer tests run via FSK.

For Test Systems that have Kit-192 v3.6 and Kit-193 v1.8, please follow the procedure outlined below. Please update your Test System if you have older versions of Kit-192 and/or Kit-193.

To set up your HART Test System to run the Application Layer tests wirelessly, connect an external commercial Gateway (GW) that supports WirelessHART to the HART Test System via an Ethernet cable. Commercial GWs are not supplied by FCG and all information about setup and configuration of the GW must be obtained from the vendor of the WirelessHART GW.

Provision your WirelessHART device with the same Network ID and Join Key as specified on the GW. The Network ID and Join Key values must match on the device and GW. They are irrelevant to the tests. Set the long tag of the device to 'HCF-DUT'. When the GW is running and the device is properly provisioned, configured and powered up, it should join the WirelessHART network of the GW without user intervention. Verify via the tools/methods supplied by the GW vendor that the device has joined the network.

Edit the 'gateway' file in user1's home directory and replace the placeholder values for the IP address and port number with the values required by, or configured for, the GW. The 'gateway' file (~user1/gateway) has the following line in it by default -

-a   -p  5094  -t  on

If, for example, the IP address of the GW on your local network is and the port number to use is 3456, modify the above line in the 'gateway' file so that it looks like this -

-a   -p  3456  -t  on

The wireless Application Layer tests use the HART-IP Server (hipserver) and the Server Application (hipiosys), both of which are installed on the Test System. Before starting any Application Layer test, make sure that the hipserver and hipiosys start up and are able to detect your device. To do this, open a terminal and type "runiosys" (without quotes). This will start the hipserver and hipiosys and use the IP address in the gateway file mentioned above along with the other parameters to connect to the commercial GW. If the hipserver is able to detect the device, the following will be printed on the terminal:

hello from hipiosys!
Connected to: hipiosys

Once you see the above, wireless application tests may be run from another terminal individually (by typing CALUxxx or UALUxxx) or via the batch scripts (runcaludp or runualudp) installed on the Test System. If the hello message from the hipiosys is not seen, please double check that you have followed all the steps outlined above to get the device to join the WirelessHART network of the commercial GW.
