Committee Assesses New Standards
February 12, 2008

ISA100, the Wireless Systems for Automation standards committee, recently formed an interest group for wireless networks in factory and discrete automation. A teleconference was held with participants representing automation equipment vendors and users interested in understanding where wireless networks may be applied in different environments.

The interest group was formed to explore opportunities and requirements that are distinctly different from those currently under consideration in ISA100 working groups. The interest group will survey the market to define a broad scope of interest in the community, identify interested parties, and analyze current contributions from other organizations. The group will then consider if a standards effort led by the International Society for Measurement & Control (ISA) is warranted, based on use cases and current efforts underway with other organizations. If so, the group will develop the scope, purpose, deliverables, and schedule for a proposed new working group – which will then work to define and develop the standard for ISA and ANSI approval.

For more information on how to participate in the interest group,
contact Charley Robinson at crobinson@isa.org
