Wireless sensors

Lauren, the wireless sensor module is very interesting.  I guess I could look it up, but I wonder what protocol(s) it uses.  Actually, the ability to set up wireless sensor networks is a great cost saving approach.  When I was first introduced to it I had one of my electrical contractors with me.  We were being briefed at a manufacturer's plant.  When the presentor talked about eliminating wiring (and rewiring) the contractor said "Not so fast, there".  It is their worst nightmare.

Naperlou, it looks like IO-Link is independent the actual network protocol, so could run on any modern fieldbus or Ethernet system.  It could run on an EtherCAT or Eithernet/IP network and do its wireless portion via plain old Wi/Fi.
