Wireless Ethernet Webcast: Ready for Industrial Prime Time

By National Instrument, Phoenix Contact & Control Global

Wireless 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.

Control's Editor-in-Chief Walt Boyes and the ARC Advisory Group's Harry Forbes explore the use of wireless Ethernet in industrial applications. They are joined by a panel of industry experts and they explore which standards are taking hold in which industries and what types of environments are best suited for which wireless options.
