In this paper, the Wireless Highway Addressable Remote Transducer (WirelessHART, WH) Protocol which has evolved from the HART Protocol is presented. It is one of the most prominent industrial wireless mesh network communications protocols for process automation applications. We describe how the protocol copes with RF link difficulties. A case study of the network behavior is given using a previously developed FD with commercial tools and analysis software developed by the authors for use in industry to obtain network data.
