ISA100 Wireless Applications, Technology, and Systems - A Tutorial White Paper ( November 2014)

Industrial wireless instrumentation is widely considered suitable for monitoring, control, and alarms, including safety alarms. Systems may be deployed using an ad hoc methodology to get started, but users are better served when systems are scaled using a more structured methodology that leverages the “Internet of Things.” User acceptance of and demand for IP-based scaled mission-critical wireless technology is driving adoption of ISA100 Wireless. ISA100 Wireless is poised to support a fast growth curve with its open design, scalable system and product architectures, and a vendor-neutral ecosystem.
