The wireless technologies in industrial automation systems offer a number of potential benefits. These wireless field instruments are easy to install being self-contained with power, radio and sensor. With the elimination of cabling, trenching and conduit, deployment costs are reduced by up to 75% relative to wired alternatives. Together, the high performance, long reach, license-free radio and long lasting battery reduce support costs while delivering valuable data. Together with ensuring operator safety, wireless remote control systems create significant competitive advantage through increased mobility, reduced installation cost and time, and benefits of preventive maintenance.
Additionally, process monitoring and telemetry operations at remote sites are commonly spread across a wide area with equipment being exposed to harsh environments, making access difficult. In comparison to capital costs, the installation, operation and maintenance of these systems is often the most significant overall expense factor in the long term. With scalability, flexibility and ease of use in mind, wireless solutions are tailored to help lower this total cost of ownership.
