Yokogawa wireless monitors are ISA100.11a compliant
Yokogawa Electric has developed three field wireless system devices and has also upped the specification of its wireless pressure and temperature transmitters, all of which are compliant with the ISA100.11a wireless standard.
ISA100.11a is a wireless communication standard for the industrial automation field that was established in 2009.
In July 2010, Yokogawa began offering entry-level field wireless system solutions based on the YFGW710 field wireless integrated gateway for industrial plant networks.
To meet this demand for large and reliable plant wireless networks, Yokogawa has developed three new field wireless system devices and enhanced two existing field wireless transmitters.
The new products are a field wireless management station, a field wireless access point, and a field wireless media converter.
The field wireless management station is a new gateway device for connecting production control systems and field wireless devices, and includes system and security management functions.
The field wireless access point is a new router device for connecting field wireless devices and gateways, while the field wireless media converter is a new device that converts data from the 100BASE-TX to the 100BASE-FX format.
The upgraded devices are the EJX-B series differential pressure/pressure transmitters, the YTMX580 wireless temperature multiplexer, and the YTA 510 temperature transmitter, both of which now have detachable remote antennas and feature low power consumption design.
Typical applications are the measurement of temperature, pressure, flow, and tank fluid level.
