About ISA100 Wireless
ISA100 Wireless (IEC 62734) is an international, industrial wireless networking standard engineered to serve the needs of process industries. End users can select ISA100 Compliant devices from a best-of-breed pool of suppliers with assurances of device interoperability. ISA100 Wireless enables automation engineers to quickly create, modify, optimize, and scale wireless networks that are open, interoperable, and reliable for their most critical applications. ISA100 Wireless is the first standard in the ISA100 family of open standards.
The ISA100 Wireless standard received ISA committee approval in 2011 and formal ANSI approval in January 2012. Headed toward internationalization, ANSI/ISA-100.11a-2011 successfully completed the CD stage in the IEC standards process with unanimous approval of IEC 62734 CDV in October 2013. ISA100 Wireless is the only IPv6LowPAN industrial protocol designed for industrial automation.
