===== ARC BENCHMARKING SURVEYS =====

>> Wireless Devices in Process Manufacturing

Wireless devices are of interest to many process manufacturers, because they offer the ability to easily add remote or incremental functionality to existing installations without significant installation cost. However, growth in this area is thwarted by numerous detractors, including concerns over susceptibility to interference and security issues.

This survey is designed to gauge current and future acceptance of wireless devices in process manufacturing in light of these issues, as well as manufacturer perspectives on applications, standardization, and other market dynamics.

All responses will remain confidential, and a free Executive Brief summarizing the results will be sent to all participants. To take the survey, please go to: www.arcweb.com/ss2/wsb.dll/ARC/wirelessproc.htm

The product mix of pressure transmitters is changing as conventional transmitters slowly give way to more intelligent devices. This trend is expected to continue as China transforms itself from a big manufacturing country to a strong one.
