Emerson, Cisco collaborate on wireless applications
Collaboration between Emerson Process Management and Cisco could lead to more rapid development of open-standard solutions for wireless process and plant management applications that install easily and operate reliably in process manufacturing environments. In addition, Emerson extended its PlantWeb Smart Machinery Health Monitoring capabilities to include API 670 protection, the American Petroleum Institute’s globally accepted definition of industry best practices for turbomachinery protection. These and other announcements came on Sept. 10, opening day of the weeklong Emerson Global Users Exchange. See Peter Welander’s Pillar to Post blog for more.
