Instrument Area Network
Wireless asset management, condition monitoring and preventative maintenance
Improve operational efficiency, reliability and control costs in a safe and secure manner
Modern Plant Managers and other operations professionals save time and money with a robust condition and preventative maintenance model enabled by wireless Instrument Area Network devices.
Instrument Area Network from Schneider Electric is an ultra-reliable wireless sensor network that gives you actionable insight into the condition of your high-value assets, so you can best protect and optimize your operation.
Instrument Area Network is a unique IIoT solution that maximizes battery life and optimizes wireless mesh network data flow. The network of transmitters is enabled with ultra-low-power BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) radios that provide increased reach into challenging areas reducing power requirements, extending battery life and reliability.
Increase flexibilityEliminate blind spots
Instrument Area Network increases free path communications and installation flexibility by communicating with installed sensors via a hybrid network of WirelessHART on the mesh and BLE in the local transmitter locations.
Unlike other mesh networking solutions, the Instrument Area Network architecture optimizes radio paths, ensuring deterministic data flow through all network nodes.
- Access to data points that were previously too costly to consider
- Quick insight into asset health for more timely response and scheduled maintenance
- Substantial cost savings by implementing a preventative wireless monitoring program
