The market for industrial wireless devices is exploding, with wireless technology becoming central to a wide range of applications that will be essential to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). These applications include AMR/AMI for utility metering, wireless mesh networks, structural sensors, machine to machine (M2M) and system control and data acquisition (SCADA), data loggers, measurement while drilling, oceanographic measurements, and emergency/safety equipment, to name a...

Advanced primary lithium batteries will support the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) by enabling remote wireless devices to operate maintenance-free for up to 40 years.

Wireless connectivity is key to permitting greater convergence and interoperability between ‘smart’ devices that will soon be connected to the burgeoning IIoT.

Closely tied to the development of low-power communications protocols such as ZigBee, WirelessHART, and LoRa, remote wireless...
