Speed of Installation

Thorough and well-written article.  I completely agree with the speed of installation advantages of a wireless system.  Many years ago, I had to set up a wired network to our factory floor and the time required to plan and install this older technology was significant (not to mention the time needed to troubleshoot improper hardware node connections).  In many instances, wireless technology will prove to be faster and much more flexible than existing wired systems.

Thanks for your thoughts.  Wireless in the factory is a great trend moving ahead, and we're just at the beginning.  Thanks again.

I see combatting the noisy industrial environment, wirelessly, is making some strides. I think I feel confident enough in the tech these days to use wireless in the machine shop. The little risk may have a huge payoff in mobility.
