Integrating Wireless Systems Into Process Industry
Now there is a trend of replacement of wired communication systems in process industry with the new developed wireless communication systems due to their more efficient and cheaper ways of connection and use. The conducted research and obtained results in the field of integration of wireless systems in process industry are described in the paper. The really existing known implementations of industrial communication networks and a critical review of their technical capabilities are shortlly considered first. Then, the requirements for the implementation of a modern management system in the processing industry is specified and the models of integration HART and WirelessHART networks are proposed. The assessment of managerial performances of the integrated network model using the results of simulation for the implementation of network and software tools for configuring, planning and management of wireless networks is also given.
