Yamatake joins the ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute 16 June 2010

Measurement and control technologies specialist Yamatake has joined the ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute (WCI) governing board, signalling support for the increasingly popular industrial plant wireless standard.

Andre Ristaino, managing director of ISA100 WCI says that Yamatake's position in process automation systems and field instruments will be critical in continuing the adoption of the wireless communications standards.

"Yamatake brings a wealth of expertise in digital field solutions, and its knowledge of the Asia Pacific region will be invaluable to WCI for meeting customers' needs and promoting the adoption of the ISA100 standards around the world," says Ristaino.

The ISA100 family of open standards is a reliable, flexible, and scalable communications protocol that helps streamline and optimise the integration of automation applications for industrial processes.

Specifically, the protocol also makes it easier for multi-vendor systems and equipment to communicate and work together.

The ISA100.11a industrial wireless networking standard uses 'mesh' technology and is the first in the ISA100 family. The hope is that manufacturing and processing plants will now be able to create, modify and optimise beginning-to-end operations quickly and cost-effectively.

Yamatake joins process organisations ranging from , including BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, Shell, Yokogawa, Yamatake, GE, Fuji Electric and Honeywell.
