Yokogawa celebrates wireless win
31 March 2014
Company receives Frost & Sullivan 2014 Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award in ISA100.11a wireless solutions category.
Yokogawa released the world’s first ISA100.11a compliant wireless system devices and wireless pressure and temperature transmitters in July 2010 and has been seeking to promote the plant-wide use of field wireless systems by developing new ISA100 Wireless devices. In December 2013, the company started providing a wireless communications module with a built-in antenna that can help field device manufacturers significantly shorten the time needed for developing wireless solutions.
Later this year, the company plans to release a multi-protocol wireless adaptor that will enable wired field instruments or analytical sensors to be used as ISA100 Wireless devices.
Frost & Sullivan selected Yokogawa for this award because of the company's efforts to develop ISA100 Wireless solutions that enable high-reliability, openness, and interoperability. In selecting the award recipient, Frost & Sullivan evaluated companies based on whether they enabled the creation of new products, enhanced current products, enabled new applications, had potential for market acceptance, and had a breadth of access to technology. Yokogawa was recognised for making a “superior contribution” in developing innovative field wireless solutions.
