Suppliers need support for integrating ISA100 technology into their product lines and having them certified as ISA100 Compliant. The site helps end users by providing a single destination for getting the most up-to-date facts on marketplace programs supporting the standard, product availability and use-cases,” commented Andre Ristaino, WCI Managing Director.
The ISA-100.11a-2009 Wireless Systems for Industrial Automation Standard, overwhelmingly approved in September 2009 is the first in the ISA100 Family of Standards. Future releases are expected to include support for backhaul functionality, factory automation and other use-cases.
