Wireless Field Network
Emerson’s Smart Wireless extends predictive intelligence into areas of your plant that were previously out of physical and economic reach. At the heart of this technology is a self-organizing network, based on the globally accepted WirelessHART standard (IEEE 802.15.4) that is secure, robust, and reliable. The DeltaV system makes wireless easy. As WirelessHART devices are powered on and self-organize into wireless field networks, the DeltaV system recognizes these devices and makes them available for operators and maintenance technicians. Unlike other automation systems, no data mapping or non-value engineering is required.
Wireless Plant Network
Smart Wireless solutions for plant-wide operations provide standards-based network infrastructure for easy integration of all the wireless applications in your plant. Working with best-in-breed networking suppliers, secure, high-reliability wireless solutions extend to your plant network for your mobile worker, DeltaV control network bridging, safety mustering, wireless video, location tracking, and wireless field network backhaul applications. Information wherever it’s needed for people throughout your operations is available securely and reliably with a Smart Wireless network. Emerson has partnered with Cisco, the leader in business networking products to implement the wireless control and plant network solution based on 802.11a/b/g “Wi-Fi” standards.
