Re: wireless for on/off valves

Topworx wireless has been used around the world on all kinds of valves in all kinds of industries for the past few years

The advantage of Topworx is that it is using a standard wireless technology: IEC 62591 (WirelessHART) so you are not locked to a single vendor. That is, you put in a WirelessHART gateway from some vendor in your plant, and then you can mix and match WirelessHART sensors from many vendors in the same network. That is, the same single network can be used for valve monitoring, valve actuation, steam trap monitoring, eyewash or safety shower activation detection, pump vibration monitoring, heat exchanger fouling monitoring, or steam consumption measurement etc. Because there are so many WirelessHART transmitters from so many vendors the applications are almost limitless.

Dear Mr. Spiegel, very good and clarify your point and I would like to know your thoughts about wireless comunication for switch valves. 

Maybe could you bring to us more information about it. 

 

Thanks a lot

Rob, this is true.  Even a 1% saving could translate into millions of dollars and eaisly pay for the upgrades.  I expect the savings would be even greater given what you point out in your article.
