ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute Makes Progress
May 30, 2008

As the International Society for Measurement & Control (ISA) ISA100 standards committee continues to develop the ISA100.11a standard, planned for release later this year, the ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute is working to develop supporting compliance programs for the universal family of ISA100 standards.

The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute (WCI), with an initial membership of nine major companies, will provide assured device compliance and interoperability with the ISA100.11a standard, an important development for users planning to deploy ISA100.11a standard compliant devices into their facilities.

The Institute is currently developing ISA100.11a standard test points that will be used as a basis for conformance requirements in a test specification that is scheduled for May completion. To expedite development of compliance tools, the effort is being undertaken concurrently with the recently released Working Group draft letter ballot. The developed test points will be finalized in close collaboration with ISA100, and used by WCI to conduct compliance tests.

A Wireless Device Test Kit (DTK) is also under development for testing device compliance with the ISA100.11a standard. It is scheduled for availability in the second half of 2008, and will be demonstrated in the ISA100 booth at the 2008 ISA EXPO in Houston, form October 12-14.

The Institute is also developing, in conjunction with ISA, a five-course wireless training curriculum. The curriculum includes a device product developer’s training course planned for presentation during ISA EXPO 2008 in Houston in October 2008.
