ISA100 Wireless

ISA100 Wireless, international standard ANSI/ISA-100.11a-2011 (IEC 62743), is a plant-wide wireless infrastructure technology for industrial environments that improves plant performance, simplifies wireless operations, and reduces costs.


Wireless solutions for industrial plant operations can feel risky.

The ISA100 Wireless standard resulted from a 2002 DOE study that estimated billions of dollars could be saved and billions of tons of energy waste could be avoided by deploying open, standards-based wireless applications at industrial sites in the USA.

The ISA100 Wireless standards effort was led by the International Society of Automation (ISA), an ANSI-accredited standards development organization (SDO). The standards committee was designated ISA100, establishing the identity for the new standard.
