Control Microsystems Publishes Whitepaper

June 30, 2010
“Improving SCADA Operations Using Wireless Instrumentation” explores ways operators can tightly integrate wireless instrumentation networks with SCADA systems

Control Microsystems Inc., a developer of advanced SCADA solutions, published “Improving SCADA Operations Using Wireless Instrumentation,” a non-commercial whitepaper that shows how Integrating wireless instrumentation with SCADA systems can drive operational efficiency and reduce deployment costs.

SCADA engineers and operators are facing the challenge of integrating wireless instrumentation networks with other communication infrastructure available in the field. Managing and debugging dispersed wireless networks presents a new level of complexity to field operators that could deter them from adopting wireless instrumentation despite the savings.

The business case behind deploying wireless instrumentation is a compelling one, according to the company. By eliminating cabling and trenching, you can dramatically reduce the cost of deployment by as much as 70%. Since wireless instrumentation is battery powered, they are much easier to deploy in the field relative to their conventional counterparts. Wired systems can take days or weeks to be properly installed. Wireless instruments require only the sensor to be installed in the process. Other instruments can be added as needed.
