Wireless for Industrial Manufacturing Systems
My facility is over 5 million sq. ft. Is it even possible to have wall-to-wall coverage in an area that large?
Should I use 2.4GHz or 5GHz or both in my manufacturing environment?
What if I need wireless coverage both inside and outside? Will the network be secure?
Should I expect (and have to accept) that there will be ‘dead spots’ within my facility?
I need my wireless network to support multiple users/applications like inventory management with mobile industrial computers, various control systems, portable bar code scanners, and general wireless connectivity with our corporate laptops. Can a wireless network support all these requirements and do it all simultaneously?
Manufacturing Environments Are Different
Manufacturers understand that their environments are different than most. Their facilities are typically filled with RF-hostile elements and/or obstacles such as large pieces of moving metal, containers full of liquid, rows of metal inventory racks, and multiple sources of RF interference. Manufacturers also have some of the most demanding uptime requirements with little tolerance for failure.
