Apprion's open, standards-based ION system is designed to help industrial facilities deploy industrial wireless applications. A new version of their IONizer industrial wireless networking appliance can integrate wireless sensor network gateways based on either ISA100.11a or WirelessHART™ standards with 802.11 (WiFi) radios to support other applications. The appliance allows:
- Plants to choose precisely the right wireless devices.
- Plug and play interoperability.
- Transmission of real-time sensor data to the ION Condition Monitoring application. Operational dashboards customized to each individual’s role in the plant.
