Wireless Ethernet: Ready for Industrial PrimetimeWireless can today lay claim to perhaps the fastest uptake of any “new” instrumentation technology in the industrial marketplace. Wireless Ethernet, broadly encompassing standard and proprietary variants of 802.11 and 802.15.4 wireless protocols, are being successfully deployed to solve a broad and growing range of industrial problems from process control to environmental monitoring. Join the discussion as Control’’s Editor-in-Chief Walt Boyes and the ARC Advisory Group’s Harry Forbes, explore the use of wireless Ethernet in industrial applications. Joined by industry experts, Robert Jackson from National Instruments and Ira Sharp from Phoenix Contact, they’ll explore which standards are taking hold in which industries, and what types of environments are best suited for which wireless options. You’ll come away with the confidence you need to put wireless Ethernet to work at your facility.
As an added bonus, the just-completed white paper from ISA100’s WG5 committee, "Wireless Technology Review: Radios, Frequencies and Implications for Industry" will be available to all webcast participants.
