Yokogawa unveils 'wireless anywhere' concept
Dubai, April 10, 2013
Yokogawa Electric Corporation, a Japanese electrical engineering company, has announced the launch of its new 'wireless anywhere' business concept.
The concept is on the plant-wide use of ISA100.11a-compliant wireless communication technologies for both monitoring and control applications, the company said in a statement.
Yokogawa stated that it will aggressively promote this concept to widen the use of ISA100.11a-compliant products and related services.
"This augments our existing 'grow' concept, which encourages the introduction of wireless communication technologies by making a case for their inherent reliability, flexibility, and openness."
The ISA100.11a standard ensures high reliability, application flexibility, network expandability, and compatibility with a variety of wired communication standards.
ISA100.11a full functional field wireless network systems and devices make use of state-of-the-art dual redundant technologies that enable a much higher level of reliability, and allow massive scalability and long-range communications.
By following up the 'grow' concept with the 'wireless anywhere' concept, Yokogawa said it is advocating the use of ISA100.11a full functional field wireless systems throughout plants.
To this end, Yokogawa said it will modularise wireless components to accelerate product development, promote adoption of the ISA100.11a standard and facilitate host connectivity for both wired and wireless field networks.-TradeArabia News Service
