A wireless process communication adapter includes a housing having a first end and a second end. A field device coupling is attached to one of the first and second ends. Adapter circuitry is disposed within the housing and the adapter circuitry is coupled to a plurality of wires that pass through the field device coupling. A wire retainer is engaged upon the plurality of wires to maintain the wires in a fixed position. An encapsulation material encapsulates the adapter circuitry, the wire retainer, and the plurality of wires.
