ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute Demonstrates ISA100.11a Products and Interoperability at Hannover Messe 2012
Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA (23 April 2012) – The ISA100
Wireless Compliance Institute (WCI) today announced that it will
showcase ISA100.11a products in live interoperability demonstrations
at the Hannover Messe (http://www.hannovermesse.de/) Industrial
Automation Fair, 23-27 April 2012, in Hannover, Germany. The
demonstrations will include multiple application protocols
communicating through an ISA100.11a mesh network. The ISA100 WCI
display booth is located in Wireless Hall 8, Booth C30.
“We are looking forward to our second year at this highly-anticipated
show and the opportunity to showcase the expanded portfolio of ISA100
products. Visitors can see devices from many suppliers, including
Apprion, Azbil, Eltav, Flowserve, Gastronics, GE, Honeywell, John
Crane, Nivis, Perpetuum, R3 Sensors and Yokogawa,” said Andre Ristaino,
managing director of ISA100 WCI. “Our live interoperability
demonstration highlights key benefits of the ISA100 wireless standard –
universal, scalable, non-proprietary, multi-functional, trustworthy,
control-ready, and robust – and the ability to support multiple
application protocols within one single wireless infrastructure.”
About the ISA100 Standard
The ISA100.11a industrial wireless sensor networking standard is the
first in the ISA100 open family of standards, focusing on the needs of
process industries. The ISA100 Wireless Compliant certification ensures
that supplier companies deliver interoperable wireless products and
provides users the freedom to choose best-of-breed ISA100.11a field
devices from any supplier. As a result, automation engineers are able
to create, modify, optimize, and scale wireless networks quickly at
user sites. With ISA100, customers have a solution that is open,
interoperable, scalable and reliable for their most critical
applications. ISA100 technology is simple to deploy, reliable, secure
and supports traditional and future applications. ISA100.11a-2011
received committee approval in 2011 and formal ANSI approval in January
2012. Headed towards internationalization, in 2011 ISA100.11a-2011 was
accepted as new work in IEC SC65C and as a Publicly Available
Specification (PAS) IEC 62734.
Planned additions to the ISA100 family of standards include support for
backhaul functionality, factory automation, power management, and other
key-use cases. Details on the approved standard, the ISA100 roadmap,
and use-case presentations are available at www.isa.org/ISA100.
