ControlMesh is a wireless industrial sensor system which removes the need for expensive cabling between process sensors (measuring temperature, pressure, flow, etc.) and a plant's control system. System setup and monitoring is also wireless.
- Robust wireless networking - wireless mesh networking means self forming and healing wireless network
- Low power - a novel technique has been implemented to keep power consumption to a minimum
- Cost savings - cabling is one of the main contributors to cost in such industrial control systems. By going wireless, the cost in materials and time is significantly reduced
- Simple to use - wireless network deployment and monitoring tools simplify deployment
Status of Innovation:
Prototypes of the system have now been produced and testing is underway. Once completed, these units will allow potential customers to test the system at a number of field sites.
