Raleigh, NC (RPRN) 08/28/12 — The Wireless Industrial Networking Alliance (WINA), expert wireless resource for the industrial market, will present a hands-on workshop on Working Wireless at ISA Automation Week at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.

ISA Automation Week is the premier annual gathering of process and discrete automation and control professionals to network and benefit from their collective experience and expertise.

The WINA workshop, “Working Wireless Hands-on Workshop -- Providing Real World Insight Into Maximizing Wireless Performance” will be offered on Monday, September 24, 2012, 1:00-5:00 p.m. in Room 314A.

This hands-on session will give attendees an opportunity to work with the tools and learn the methods used in performing wireless site surveys, as well gaining insight into configuring industrial wireless backbone networks for maximum performance.

The first half of the session will be devoted to radio theory and the tradeoff between bandwidth and range, as well as other critical parameters, with various wireless systems being reviewed. Included in this portion of the workshop will be the development of simple criteria used in the selection of antennas for a variety of applications.

This session will be presented by Brian Cunningham, Applications Engineer, Cooper Bussmann, Wireless Business Unit.

The second half of the workshop will allow attendees to test their new skills in an in-depth set of exercises that analyze and demonstrate wireless protocol considerations, including the use of spectrum analyzers and signal monitoring equipment.

Included in the hands-on session will be the use of high-performance radio pairs, power supplies, cables and antennas.  Participants will be given typical industrial user requirements and asked to perform a site survey, analyze the results and configure and test the radios to meet the requirements.  Participants should bring their own laptop computers with administrator privileges and Internet Explorer version 7 or greater installed to make the best use of the tools provided.
