Wireless control of processes was a long time coming, but today, this technology offers several distinct advantages not previously available in industrial settings.
Security and reliability have significantly improved with the advent of advanced technologies, which means that industrial wireless networks aren’t just for monitoring and data tracking anymore.
Wireless Process Control Applications
Wireless controls are ideal for allowing facilities staff to use mobile and handheld devices — laptops, tablets and even smartphones — to monitor and interface with controllers.
Wireless sensors have also become a common fixture in industrial process controls and automation systems and they provide a simple, fast, affordable way to provide instrumentation to areas that lack access to power and wired communication networks.
Taken together, this technology provides a unique opportunity for efficient, reliable monitoring, troubleshooting and controlling but at a fraction of the cost of a traditional wired system.
Adopting Wireless Control for Your Industrial Processes
If you would like to adopt wireless process control into your existing systems, our team can work with you to determine the feasibility. The good news is that most process control component manufacturers now offer the tools necessary to link wireless elements to hardwired legacy systems and instrumentation.
For new construction, expansion and retrofit projects, we can incorporate this technology in a variety ways to help you achieve your goals.
We routinely design and build network architecture that supports our clients’ goals for reliable, cost-effective process controls systems. Wireless technology has opened up a wealth of possibilities for our industrial electric clients, reducing costs and expediting the installation and startup processes.
