At last week’s Emerson Exchange, John Rezabek of ISP presented Wireless or Fieldbus? You might recall John from his columns in Control magazine and on the ControlGlobal.com site. He presented a cost comparison for a plant expansion considering Foundation fieldbus instruments versus WirelessHART-based ones. John values the digital integration of field devices, which both technologies […]
