Building the Ideal Remote Monitoring/SCADA System
Recent technology advances on several fronts have opened the door to a new class of process monitoring architecture that has the potential to significantly change the rules for remote monitoring and control. A new class of 'Virtual SCADA Solutions' are driven by the huge cost savings in installation and logistics, and provides dramatic improvement in the collection frequency, reliability, and distribution of field data. The future of many industries and organizations will depend on their ability to automate the decision process and provide customers, suppliers, and employees with reliable and timely information.
Integrating Wireless Technology into Existing Systems
This presentation will provide the audience with an overview of 'which wireless' works best, by reviewing the available technologies, current application successes, and future technology directions. We will discuss the growth and evolution of radio transmission technologies (narrowband, spread spectrum, cellular, satellite) in the industrial environments, and review the 'competing' protocol standards including 802.x (Bluetooth, ZigBee, WiFi, WiMax), 3G/4G, and various proprietary protocols . The goals and initiatives of the various industrial wireless "standards" consortiums (including ISA's SP100 & WiHART ) will also be touched on.
