We need a new level and temperature system for a pump controlled by the process variable, and we want to go wireless. Can we set up a wireless device in the field and incorporate it into our current business planning and control system (BPCS)?
Expert’s answer: Setting up wireless device on established system?
Wireless device on established system: can it really be done? Good question! The answer is: Yes, it certainly can! In fact, many field devices can talk to your system using protocols such as OPC, EtherNet-IP, and HART-IP. Also, wireless makes installation and commissioning easy. Keep in mind, however, that these devices can limit the update time, usually to eight seconds. Now, if that works for you, you can use the WirelessHART or ISA-100.
