Working Wireless Hands-on Workshop at ISA 2012
The Wireless Industrial Networking Alliance (WINA), is planning on presenting a hands-on workshop on Working Wireless at ISA Automation Week 2012 in Orlando.
The WINA workshop, titled "Working Wireless Hands-on Workshop -- Providing Real World Insight Into Maximizing Wireless Performance" will be offered on Monday, September 24, 2012, 1:00-5:00 p.m.
This hands-on session focuses on presenting those attending with the opportunity to work with the tools and learn the methods used in performing wireless site surveys. Participants will also gain insight into configuring industrial wireless backbone networks for maximum performance.
The first half of the session, presented by Brian Cunningham, Applications Engineer, Cooper Bussmann, will focus on radio theory and the tradeoff between bandwidth and range. This session will aso review other critical parameters, with various wireless systems. Included in this portion of the workshop will be the development of simple criteria used in the selection of antennas for a variety of applications.
In the second half of the workshop,is a hands-on session where attendees will test their new skills by performing different exercises, analyzing and demonstrating wireless protocol considerations, including the use of spectrum analyzers and signal monitoring equipment.
The second half of the session will also focus on the use of high-performance radio pairs, power supplies, cables and antennas. Participants will be given typical industrial user requirements and asked to perform a site survey, analyze the results and configure and test the radios to meet the requirements.
Those interested in participating in this workshop should come preapred with their own laptop computers. Internet Explorer version 7 or greater should be the installed browser.
