Top Five Selection Criteria for Industrial Wireless Technologies
Wireless applications clearly present significant benefits to the industries they serve, such as enabling new monitoring and control capabilities, adding flexibility to existing capabilities and reducing cost of operations and process management. In response, many different wireless solutions and applications are sprouting up across the spectrum to address this growing industrial demand. That said, however, the industrial space presents a unique set of challenges that many traditional wireless solutions are just not specifically designed for, such as high-reliability, low system power consumption and the ability to survive in an RF-unfriendly physical environment, all while being cost-effective. The growing usage of wireless technologies also becomes a challenge as there are many different applications fighting for the same RF-space, thus leading to an overly crowded spectrum and compounding the existing industrial challenges. With these unique challenges in the industrial space as well as the challenges that wireless applications present, how does one compare existing solutions and ensure they are adequate in addressing their environments? Let’s take a look at five of these top variables to address this question. To read more, click the download link below or visit Industrial Control DesignLine.
