The Aussie-operated satellite network will offer IoT connectivity for less than $3 per device per year.
The service is suitable for access to all devices, including IoT, in any remote part of the globe.
Researchers at the University of Adelaide have developed a method for embedding light-emitting nanoparticles into glass without losing any of their unique properties — a major step towards 'smart glass' applications.
In Part 1 of this article, we reviewed the history of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and defined the common standards used in industrial wireless networks. In this part we compare more closely the two prevalent wireless mesh network standards designed for use in process plants: WirelessHART and ISA100.11a.
Red Lion's HSPA+ (GMHSPA) cellular module for its Graphite HMI platform uses an HSPA+ cellular network to provide data communication to remotely located assets across oil and gas, water and wastewater, power, utility and alternative energy applications.
Today wireless instrumentation is becoming more commonplace in process plants and is a more specialised implementation of wireless sensor network (WSN) technology. In this two-part article we look at the predominant industrial wireless standards.
The International Society of Automation (ISA) has announced that ANSI/ISA-100.11a-2011 has been approved by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as an international standard.
SpeedCast will host the first demonstration of its ReadyCONNECT TA12 solution at the APPEA Conference and Exhibition in Perth this week.
SpeedCast has opened a new office in Perth to meet the needs of its oil and gas and mining customers. The company has also announced plans to unveil its new streamlined global operations at the Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference.
The SDS 6100 range is based on highly reliable and accurate sensors coupled with a satellite communication module and, to reduce even further reliance on local infrastructure, a solar-powered version is available.
Many operational and maintenance problems around a plant can be solved by deploying WirelessHART transmitters beyond the P&ID together with an asset management system and other software to obtain asset health information and other additional plant data. However, plant procedures must be written so as to make full use of this new information.
