Chementator: Industry group to develop a multifunctional wireless network standard

By Chemical Engineering |

An industrial group, composed of Honeywell, Adaptive Instruments, Endress + Hauser, Flowserve, Omnex Control Systems, 3e Technologies International, and Yokogawa, have joined the Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society (ISA; Research Triangle Park, N.C.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/5830-542) SP100 working group (chartered last year) to support the committee’s efforts to creatre an open industrial and multifunctional wireless standard. The group aims to develop a joint solution that will enable industrial plants to use a single wireless network architecture to support a wide range of applications. The SP100 committee has identified requirements for managing just a few devices, or up to tens of thousands of devices residing on a single, scalable, wireless plant network. Plant operators can use this system to perform multiple, simultaneous tasks, including low- and high-rate monitoring, control functions, and tasks performed with handheld WiFi devices. The network architecture will provide integrated end-to-end security that will guard against cyber threats, as well as enable companies to reduce the number of disparate wireless networks used at a plant, which also reduces operational costs and disruprions.   Click here…
