ISA 100 in Japan

The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute (WCI)  held a successful ISA100.11a technology implementation seminar in Tokyo (J) recently. The seminar was hosted by Yokogawa, Yamatake, Fuji Electric and Nivis. More than 20 engineers from leading automation suppliers attended the one-day event that highlighted the status of the ISA100.11a-2011 industrial wireless standard, provided an introduction to the standard, the system architecture and beneficial characteristics inherent in the standard. The seminar included a training session on product integration tools available for the ISA100.11a technology and how to develop products based on the standard.     

“The interest from the Asia Pacific region has been incredible, and we will continue to offer seminars and training as the need dictates,” said Toshi Hasegawa, manager of industrial automation wireless marketing, Yokogawa, and district leader of ISA100 WCI Asia Pacific Region. “We are thrilled that major suppliers from this region are currently developing or looking to develop products supporting the ISA100.11a-2011 standard and expanding the portfolio to include products such as liquid analyzers, gas analyzers, flowmeters, level meters and control valves.”
The seminar provided an overview of ISA100.11a technology, covered application and installation examples, and included hands-on development exercises using the ISA100.11a Application Program Interface (API). Several suppliers who participated in the implementation seminar will showcase prototype products at the November 2011JEMIMA show in Tokyo, which will feature an ISA100.11a device interoperability demonstration.

“The success of the training session we hosted was beyond our expectations,”
said Scott Johnson, vice president product management, Nivis. “The room was filled with product suppliers excited to learn more about how to implement ISA100.11a wireless communication technology into their products"
