Wireless Process Control

There are so many ways to integrate systems using the latest wireless technology.  The use of WiFi and Bluetooth in our everyday lives has become so common that we sometimes take it for granted.  Next time you’re in the airport just imagine everyone using a PC or a tablet having a network wire connection; that would be some tripping hazard!  For industrial process control applications, wireless communication equipment is nearly always a consideration.  ES2 has designed and installed a number of wireless systems from basic single node transmission of a single contact closure or 4-20ma analog signal, to Ethernet/Modbus communications linking PLCs controlling multiple processes.  If you are updating your process control system we recommend considering a reliable wireless connection.
