Emerson is partnering with Cisco to introduce a next-generation industrial wireless networking solution that fundamentally transforms data management to help improve plant productivity, reliability, and safety.  The new Emerson Wireless 1410S Gateway with the Cisco Catalyst IW6300 Heavy Duty Series Access Point combines the latest in wireless technology with WirelessHART sensor technology, delivering reliable and highly secure data, even in the harshest industrial environments.

This next-gen wireless access point provides enhanced wi-fi bandwidth necessary for real-time safety monitoring, including Emerson’s Location Awareness and wireless video.  These applications enhance personnel safety practices, improve plant security and help ensure environmental compliance.  A reliable and fast connection between devices and people streamlines decision making by providing real-time analytics.  It also enables a mobile workforce to virtually come together, collaborate and resolve critical issues in a timely manner.

The new wireless access point supports mobile applications that offer instant access to process control data, maintenance information and operation procedures, enabling improved plant productivity and worker safety.
