• Fundamentals of ISA100.11a (WCI01)

    Length: 1 day/8 hours
    CEU Credits: .8
    Course Hours: 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
    Certification of Completion: A Certificate of Completion indicating the total number of CEUs earned will be provided upon successful completion of the course.


    The ISA100.11a standard is an open framework for wireless sensors and actuators targeted at industrial environments.  Target applications include process monitoring, equipment monitoring, and some types of control. 

    This course provides an opportunity for users and suppliers to be efficiently briefed on a broad range of technical topics related to ISA100.11a, in sessions led by designers of the standard. It is intended for product designers and technically sophisticated users who would benefit from an efficient introduction to the technical design principles underlying the ISA100.11a standard.

    Students will be introduced to the key concepts underlying ISA100.11a, especially related to reliability, scalability, openness, security, deployment, and development tools.  Following this course, students can "hit the ground running" with their real-world projects to evaluate, develop and apply ISA100.11a technology.

    You will be able to:

    • Understand the key technical concepts underlying the ISA100.11a. standard, especially as they relate to reliability, scalability, openness, security, and deployment.
    • Communicate the latest trends in industrial wireless technology.
    • Effectively evaluate products and solutions that incorporate industrial wireless technology.
    • Identify appropriate early applications for industrial wireless sensors and actuators.
    • Begin to develop and/or deploy ISA100.11a technology.
