It's well know that reach often exceeds grasp, but wireless lets process applications and users grasp as far as they want. Plus, updated wireless standards and devices are letting them do it more easily and at less cost than ever. On the cover of this month's issue, we look at how self-healing mesh, wirelessHART and other innovations keep pushing boundaries to reliably deliver data from remote and hard-to-reach locations.
Also in this issue are feature articles about supervisory control and safety systems, as well as the latest I/O and terminal block solutions.
Find all of this and more in the November issue of Control.
