Wireless networks and sensors are used in a wide range of process industry applications, usually at dramatically lower costs compared to traditional wired alternatives and with reduced engineering and installation time. Many users are receiving significant value and easier project justification by selecting wireless solutions.
FieldComm Group’s second webinar of its 2018 Webinar Series explained the role of WirelessHART in the new era of industrial automation. Registrants learned how the technology offers important operational and business advantages for industrial organizations while creating an expandable infrastructure that facilitates a path to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
Presented on Tuesday, July 24, the latest webinar featured a WirelessHART supplier panel that included Phillippe Moock, Armstrong; Daniel Nazimek, Endress+Hauser; Garrett Schmidt, Phoenix Contact; and Eric Rotvold and Emily Saopraseuth, Emerson. The panelists discussed how WirelessHART solutions help improve plant reliability, lower energy costs and enhance safety. With a reported +36,000 installed networks worldwide, users are reaping the benefits and value of this simple, reliable and secure wireless solution.
Specific webinar topics included:
- How WirelessHART solutions significantly reduce operational costs and +50% of project cost
- How WirelessHART applications solve users’ measurement challenges, including monitoring tank farms, steam traps, safety areas and more
- How WirelessHART installations are simple, reliable, secure and low-risk
- How planned WirelessHART technology enhancements will provide even more value
