ISA100 technology is often deployed in locations with congested wireless channels from pre-existing wireless networks. For this reason, ISA100 was designed with coexistence in mind, so it can deliver optimal performance in the presence of other wireless networks.
Sharing the Spectrum – Radios operating in the 2.4GHz ISM band must share frequency in the presence of other RF systems.
The ISA100 Wireless Solution
Channel Blacklist – Automatically avoid congested channels
Frequency/Channel Hopping – Minimizes error by spreading signal over entire available band
Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum – Energy spreads so it looks like noise to other systems
Dynamic Power Control – Limits interference
Low-Duty Cycle Operation – Short time-synchronized communication reduces congestion
CSMA/CA (Listen Before Talk) Clear Channel Assessment – Avoids collisions with other radio systems
Frequency Selection – Force operation on specific channels to optimize performance
ETSI EN 300.328 v1.8.1 compliance – ISA100 Wireless is the only industrial wireless network protocol that satisfies this regulation, which went into effect January 1, 2015. Download the ETSI 300.328 v1.8.1 regulation
