Appropriate Application Level for Wireless Instrumentation: Best Practices

Presented By

Thomas Garry - Emerson Process Management


A continuation of Part-1 focused on Best Practices and Security.

Part-1 Description:

Wireless technology has been gaining acceptance in the industrial environment for

many years now as security fears have been put to rest. Properly applying wireless
technology is still often misunderstood as users may push limitations in difficult
applications or, more often, overlook applications which can result in increased
production revenue, higher reliability, and better process control.

During this presentation we will offer and explain an easy-to-apply matrix on basic wired vs. wireless point decision making. From there we will explore some of the key best-
practices to ensure a successful wireless project and cover several applications which
lend themselves extremely well to wireless technology. These applications are often
not considered at all because they require thinking outside of the norm.
