Wireless sensor Network Selection for plants

Presented by FieldComm Group - India Society

Originally Recorded - September 5, 2020

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technologies are not the same. There are very significant differences and the wrong technology choise for the plant can be unreliable and disruptive for the data users. WSN is a key enabler for Digital Transformation, including IIoT, and one cannot invest in a separate WSN infrastructure for each use case like corrosion, vibration, and leaks etc. So how do you tackle a plant, with all the varieties of advanced sensors from multiple automation vendors available today, integrate them into the existing automation and effectively utilize the sensor intelligence and avoid incompatibility?

This webinar will review the technical solutions to the criteria in the NAMUR NE124 Wireless Automation Requirements recommendation to help you select the right WSN for your plant.


FieldComm Group in cooperation with CONTROL magazine is hosting the 2019 Industrial Internet of Things Webinar Series.

From Devices to Enterprise and Beyond -- The Value of a Fully Integrated System

Originally Recorded - April 24, 2019

Control and the FieldComm Group are staging a webinar at 2 p.m. CDT on April 24 that will combine three of the most knowledgeable sources available in using FieldComm protocols to bridge gaps between installed process devices and the increasingly digitalized Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Because most process applications and facilities are huge patchworks of legacy devices, it can be hard to reach let alone access, transfer, and use their data to achieve better decisions. Nonetheless, this is exactly what this webinar will show listeners how to do.

The panel will demonstrate how Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd. (MRPL) used its "do things better" culture and advanced implementations of HART, Wireless HART and Foundation Fieldbus protocols to integrate operating units at its 15-million-tonnes-per-year oil and gas refinery in Karnatka state on the west coast of India, and go on the win the FieldComm Group's 2018 Plant of Year Award. They'll also show how Moore Industries International's HART-to-Ethernet gateway and Endress+Hauser's Nelition ecosystem can make it even simpler to move useful information from operations to IIoT and the enterprise.
