About the ISA100 Standard
The ISA100.11a industrial wireless sensor networking standard is the first in the ISA100 open family of standards, focusing on the needs of process industries. The ISA100 Wireless Compliant certification ensures that supplier companies deliver interoperable wireless products and provides users the freedom to choose best-of-breed ISA100.11a field devices from any supplier. As a result, automation engineers are able to create, modify, optimize, and scale wireless networks quickly at user sites. With ISA100, customers have a solution that is open, interoperable, scalable and reliable for their most critical applications. ISA100 technology is simple to deploy, reliable, and supports traditional and future applications. ISA100.11a-2011 received committee approval in 2011 and formal ANSI approval in January 2012. Headed towards internationalization, in 2011 ISA100.11a-2011 was accepted as new work in IEC SC65C as a Publicly Available Specification (PAS) IEC 62734.
Planned additions to the ISA100 family of standards include support for backhaul functionality, factory automation, and other key-use cases. Details on the approved standard, the ISA100 roadmap, and use-case presentations are available at www.isa100wci.org.
