Accessing a Wireless Gateway


This workshop provides several exercises that can be used to further explore the information that may be accessed using the built-in webpage provided with the gateway. In this workshop we will login into the gateway and explore the types of information that may be accessed.

Step 1: Open the WirelessHART gateway webpage by typing the gateway IP address in a web browser. In response a login page will be displayed.

Step 2: Type in the account name and password. In response the main web page will be displayed.

Step 3: Click on different nodes of the hierarchical tree on the left pane to view different information. For example, through this interface you may access a network overview, the published device values, the network configuration and the parameters of a device that are configurable.
