Running cabling on your factory floor can be a very expensive proposition. There are the physical obstacles of walls, floors, and equipment coupled with environmental considerations. Harsh environments deteriorate wires, users break cables, vibrations loosen connections, and wash downs waterlog cabling creating faults. These factors can all lead to a high cost of ownership for some wired networks.
Wireless 802.11 connectivity eliminates these concerns. Wi-Fi industrial gateways allow for wireless communication between PLCs and other wireless devices. Machines that are mobile, such as pickers and cranes, are able to move around with fewer restrictions thanks to wireless connectivity.
