Title: Technical and economical assessment of the use of wireless gateways in industrial networks
Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: The integration between industrial applicationsand industrial networks technologies is a required condition toshare information at the factory level. Industrial networks areknown for having different communication protocols. Thereforewired gateway technologies play an important role in theintegration of different protocol stacks, wherever that integrationis necessary. However, if there are physical constraints that makehard setting up a wired gateway, such as, difficult access for therequired cabling, the use of a wireless gateway may present both atechnical and an economical advantage when compared withwired gateway. This paper illustrates two industrial automationcase studies, where both solutions use ELPRO wireless gatewaysproposed by TecWise Company®. The assessment results confirmthat the use of wireless gateways may be an interesting solutionfor the industrial communication interconnection being analyzed.In this paper, we make a technical and economical assessment ofthe use of wireless gateways in industrial networks as acontributive solution for the integration of different industrialcommunication protocols.
