ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute certifies improved Yokogawa ISA100 Wireless™ Stack implementation

Yokogawa Electric Corporation has certified the F9092RB, an updated and improved ISA100 Wireless stack implementation

Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA (08 June 2016) – The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute announced today that Yokogawa Electric Corporation has successfully achieved ISA100 Wireless certification for its latest ISA100 Wireless Stack implementation, the F9092RB. The ISA100 Wireless certification provides assurance that the devices will interoperate in any ISA100 Wireless compliant network.

The F9092RB represents several improvements over Yokogawa’s most recently certified ISA100 Wireless stack implementation, the FN110. It is now interoperable with any ISA100 gateway, and it can now more easily integrate with other sensor vendor’s devices. View the certification here.

Both the F9092RB and the FN110 are built to be used as drop-in modules, easily extending wireless features to field devices. The high performance, built-in wireless communication modules are compact, lightweight, and offer excellent radio sensitivity with low power consumption.

“Yokogawa continues to extend and improve capabilities of their ISA100 Wireless product line,” remarked Andre Ristaino, Managing Director of ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute. “This new ISA100 Wireless communication module is an example of Yokogawa’s commitment to the ISA100 Wireless family of standards.”
