OneWireless™ Wireless Device Manager Specification
Wireless Device Manager Overview
The WDM allows users to design, commission, configure, and monitor the wireless field network and devices connected to it from a
centralized location. A centralized management approach significantly simplifies day-to-day operations — resulting in a low cost-ofownership.
The device assumes the roles of wireless field instrument
network gateway, system manager, and security manager:
 As a gateway, WDM handles communication between ISA100
Wireless field instruments and information systems. It acts as a
protocol translator between the application layer of the ISA100
Wireless standard and other application layers, such as
Modbus (both RTU/Serial and TCP), HART, OPC-UA, OPCDA, and CDA (Honeywell Experion® PKS communication
protocol). Leveraging the ISA100 Wireless standard’s tunneling
feature, Honeywell’s WDM offers a Generic Client Interface
that enables wireless field devices to communicate with
process applications using other types of field protocols,
including proprietary protocols, over the ISA100 Wireless
 As a system manager, WDM governs the network, devices,
and communications. When two devices need to communicate,
they do so using a contract which is created, managed,
modified, and terminated by the WDM. It also performs policybased control of the network runtime configuration; monitors
and reports on communication configuration, performance, and
operational status; and, finally, provides time-related services.
 As a security manager, WDM issues security keys to wireless
devices so they can join the wireless field instrument network.
The device authenticates connectivity between nodes on the
wireless field instrument network, manages session keys, and
enables secure encrypted communication in the field
instrument network.

Key Features
Great user experience
WDM offers a modern, beautiful, and feature rich user interface making it easy for
users to commission ISA100 Wireless field devices and monitor the entire wireless
system. With no software to install and an intuitive user interface, the time needed to
commission ISA100 Wireless field instruments is reduced to only a few minutes.
Integration with Experion
The native communication between WDM and other Experion nodes significantly
reduces the time spent incorporating wireless field instruments into a control strategy.
Integration with TPS and
other DCS/PLC systems
A rich portfolio of integrated field protocol interfaces (i.e., Modbus, HART, OPC-UA,
OPC-DA, GCI, Honeywell Enraf, and CDA) allows users to easily send data from
ISA100 Wireless field devices to TDC3000 system, Honeywell Enraf Entis Pro, Field
Device Manager and other host applications.
Robust security system
WDM offers end-to-end 128-bit encryption, application proxy agent and secured
HTTPS (certificates)-based user interface, which protects users from cyber security
Pre-configured reports with
key performance indicators
WDM’s built-in reports reduce by half the time spent monitoring and optimizing the
wireless field instrument network.
WDM’s redundancy improves significantly the reliability of the OneWireless network by
ensuring no loss of process data.
System Management Features
The WDM is the ISA100 Wireless network system manager.
Using WDM’s intuitive web interface, users can easily design,
commission, configure, and manage the ISA100 Wireless
network, the ISA100 Wireless network devices (FDAP and Cisco

WDM to the ISA100 Wireless field device is called provisioning.
 The Monitoring tab allows users to add, configure,
commission, and monitor wireless field devices (e.g., wireless
field instruments and network nodes). This view offers an
abundance of data in a clear and intuitive manner, thanks to
smart buttons that hide/unhide information (signal strength,
process value, battery life, etc.) depending on the user’s
needs. Users can drag and drop field devices on imported
maps, allowing them to be aware of the geo-location of each
device. The zoom in/out feature is very useful when monitoring
a large system.
 The Alarms/Events tab displays the alarms and system
events generated by the wireless field devices in a tabular
format. Users can easily view active alarms as well as alarms
and events that occurred in the past.
Honeywell’s WDM supports the two provisioning methods
defined by the ISA100 Wireless standard: infrared provisioning
and over-the-air provisioning.
Provisioning Application for Handheld Devices
Infrared provisioning consists of transmitting security keys to
ISA100 Wireless field devices via the infrared port of a handheld
device hosting Honeywell’s OneWireless provisioning application.
The infrared provisioning adds another element to the system’s
security: physical security. For a device to be issued a key, the
technician must be close to the wireless field instrument.
The provisioning device application runs on any mobile platform
with an IR port and Microsoft Windows* Mobile 5.0 or higher
operating system.

The provisioning device application also allows users to view the
configured settings of ISA100 Wireless field devices and enables
them to transmit calibration commands to and from the
Over-the-air Provisioning
Over-the-air provisioning allows a user to accept or reject an unprovisioned ISA100 Wireless field device via WDM’s user
pair, consisting of a primary and secondary WDM. The primary
WDM will constantly synchronize configuration and process data
to the secondary Wireless Device in real-time. The secondary
WDM will switch to the primary role if a software or hardware
failure occurs on the primary WDM.
interface. With this method, an external provisioning device
(PDA) is no longer necessary.
Application Proxy Agent and Firewalls
WDM includes an application proxy agent that acts as an
intermediary between the wireless network and the plant
network. There is basically an air-gap between the two networks
(i.e., there is no packet forwarding between the two networks). All
traffic coming in from the wireless network terminates on the
WDM. Wireless data is collected by the WDM using the wireless
network port and is stored in its cache. Plant applications access
data from WDM using one of the standard industrial protocols
such as Modbus, OPC-UA, OPC-DA or CDA via the plant
network port. Because external hosts only communicate with the
proxy agent, internal IP addresses are not made known to the
outside world. This approach is much more secure than any
firewall, including application aware firewalls.
WDM supports the Modbus protocol so that any standard
measurement, status, or other parameter can be read by any
Modbus application. Users can configure register number
assignments based on their needs. The device supports Modbus
RTU (RS-232 and RS-485) and Modbus TCP/IP interfaces.
The WDM hosts an OPC Unified Architecture (UA) server, which
provides open system communication to ISA100 Wireless data.
OPC UA provides a service-oriented architecture (SOA) for
industrial applications. This platform-independent OPC server
integrates the different flavors of the former OPC specifications
(OPC DA, OPC HA and OPC AE) into a unified address space
accessible with a single set of services. WDM exposes process
data only over the OPC UA interface. The historical data or
alarm/events are not currently supported. For OPC-based

number of protocols to enter WDM from the plant network side.
End-to-end 128-bit Encryption
The WDM takes advantage of the ISA100 Wireless standard to
ensure the integrity of the message. As such, process data is
AES-128 bit encrypted at the source and decrypted at the
destination (i.e., the WDM). This provides end-to-end security for
the process data.
Gateway Features
Like other intelligent digital field instruments, ISA100 Wireless
field instruments offer important diagnostic data. The WDM’s
HART interface allows users to access the diagnostics
information from their favorite field instrument management
system without native support for ISA100 Wireless, such as
Honeywell’s Field Device Manager R430 and earlier. This
enables ISA100 Wireless field instruments to be monitored like

instruments (transmitters or actuators) and process control
The HART interface (HART IP) is also used to access
applications. The device can be connected to the wired process
diagnostics from HART devices connected to OneWireless
control network at the Level 2 or Wireless DMZ (refer to the
OneWireless Network Overview document).
