Wireless Sanity Prevails--ISA100.11a D2 ballot fails

Oct. 13, 2008

The ballot for the current draft of ISA100.11a failed of receiving its required two-thirds majority to pass. The draft will be returned to the Working Group, along with the comments received, and we will do another round.

I am pleased and proud of the ISA100 community for recognizing that science and engineering are more important than money and politics. We now have a chance to put together the standard the way it ought to have been done.

We might even be able to integrate WirelessHART into Draft 3.

Here's to the sudden outbreak of sanity.
