Wireless Simulation Tool

The Wireless Simulation Tool is a piece of simulation software to support the planning of wireless systems in industrial environments. It helps you to estimate the number and position of the necessary wireless components and uses this as the basis for simulating the outcome of a radio frequency site survey:

  • How many access points are needed for wireless coverage of the required area?
  • What is the best mounting location with regard to wireless technology?
  • What does the use of special antennas contribute?
  • What influence do the planned antenna cable lengths have?

Information from the ZVEI working group: Wireless in automation

Phoenix Contact is actively involved in various working groups to promote the use of wireless technologies in industry. The ZVEI Wireless in Automation working group has produced two publications which can be downloaded free of charge from the ZVEI website:

  • Wireless solutions in automation – overview and decision guidance
    This describes the requirements for wireless solutions, cost-benefit aspects, and technical aspects of the chosen system.
  • Coexistence of wireless systems in automation technology
    Fourteen manufacturers of electrical automation technology explain how wireless solutions can be operated in parallel without faults.
