Experience the Virtual Wireless Plant
With Emerson’s Smart Wireless solutions, the benefits of PlantWeb’s predictive intelligence can be extended to areas that were
previously out of physical or economic reach. With application categories ranging from Process and Asset Monitoring to People &
Productivity, Safety/Health & Environmental, and Plant Management, there are no limits to the benefits Smart Wireless can deliver.
Remote locations, physical obstructions, and the high cost of engineering, installing, and integrating the necessary technologies are no longer
the barriers they were. Emerson’s Smart Wireless makes extending your “information reach” easy and affordable, enabling you to unleash
your imagination and operation. To help you visualize what’s possible, we’ve highlighted over 20 wireless applications in our online Virtual
Wireless Plant.
The Virtual Wireless Plant is a web-based application that shows how wireless technologies can solve
operational challenges today. This interactive model of a plant features over 20 customer-inspired
applications, organized into five application categories: Asset Protection, Process Monitoring,
People & Productivity, Safety/Health & Environmental (SH&E), and Plant Management.
Simply click on an application category tab, then select a specific wireless hot-spot to “fly” to
an illustration of that application.
