Control Microsystems Publishes “Improving SCADA Operations Using Wireless Instrumentation” White Paper
White paper explores the various ways in which
operators can tightly integrate wireless instrumentation networks with SCADA
Ottawa, Ontario, June 28, 2010 – Control Microsystems Inc. (CMI), a global developer of advanced SCADA solutions, published “Improving SCADA Operations Using Wireless Instrumentation,” a non-commercial white paper that shows how Integrating wireless instrumentation with SCADA systems can drive operational efficiency and reduce deployment costs.
SCADA engineers and operators are facing the challenge of integrating wireless instrumentation networks with other communication infrastructure available in the field. Managing and debugging dispersed wireless networks presents a new level of complexity to field operators that could deter them from adopting wireless instrumentation despite the exceptional savings.
The business case behind deploying wireless instrumentation is a compelling one. By eliminating cabling and trenching, you can dramatically reduce the cost of deployment by as much as 70%. Since wireless instrumentation is battery powered, they are much easier to deploy in the field relative to their conventional counterparts. Wired systems can take days or weeks to be properly installed. Wireless instruments require only the sensor to be installed in the process, saving hours or days and valuable resources. Other instruments can be added as needed.
So if the business case is that strong and the return on investment is solid, why are some companies still reluctant to deploy wireless instrumentation in their facilities? This paper describes the reasons why companies remain reluctant to use wireless instrumentation and the advances in wireless technology and SCADA software that solve wireless integration problems.
