Wireless Instrumentation for Process Control and Measurement

How do industrial wireless standards deal with cyber-security issues?

In this article, Arthur Low compares the two predominant industrial wireless standards, WirelessHART and ISA100.11a, based on their ability to protect your data, instruments, and process from cyber attacks, and how that can affect your decision to use one standard over the other

Is wireless worth it? If you answer YES to any of these question, wireless could be your solution.

  • Do you have points you'd like to measure, but they're remote or difficult to justify running wires and conduit? Is power available?
  • Are there points you're measuring today manually with a "pickup truck and clipboard" approach?
  • Are there points you want to measure on a short-term basis to help diagnose problems with assets or processes?
  • Do you have issues with maintaining wiring due to burned cables, corrosion, water in the junction boxes, or other ambient conditions?
  • Do you take measurements on equipment that's in motion, like a drier or kiln?
  • Do you ever need to repeat or relay existing 4-20 mA signals to another location?
  • Still not sure? Read how our customers have successfully implemented wireless in their plants.
