Many more useful measurements could be taken in discrete manufacturing and process plant applications without the expense and labor related to wire and cables for some hard-to-reach applications. Wiring in manufacturing or process-plant settings, with the accompanying complex supporting infrastructure and labor, drops from high ceilings or trenching can add 10-fold or more to installation costs. It doesn't have to be that way. Industrial wireless technologies can provide cost-effective reliable communications. Key considerations and application examples will be discussed by Dan Capano, owner and president of Diversified Technical Services Inc. Mark T. Hoske, content manager and editor with Control Engineering, will explain wireless trends based on Control Engineering research and will moderate the webcast. A question and answer session will follow the presentations, for a total of 1 hour. This RCEP-accredited webcast offers an opportunity to earn a professional development hour (PDH).

Webcast participants will learn:

  • Industrial wireless trends according to Control Engineering research
  • How wireless works
  • Wireless spectrum allocations and wireless standardization
  • Wireless security methods
  • Basics of propagation characteristics and site surveys
  • Various deployment examples, including a description of a proof of concept project at a water treatment plant.
