I have a new level measurement application, and the vendor wants to sell me wireless stuff with the radar. What kind of concerns should I have?
Expert’s answer: Wireless radar
Wireless radar is all good. Wireless is the wave of the future, so you might want to get on board or get wiped out. Sure, people have concerns about it. But all the wireless products on the market should tell you this new solution works pretty well.
However, it hasn’t become common yet to have wireless solutions for process control. Still, you already have a controller for wireless solutions. Also battery life has expanded; you can get an update in seconds, so a battery can last for years.
Furthermore, wireless brings the possibility of remote access, which can save money on installation. If you want to save money and have remote access, consider wireless!
