AirSprite Intros WirelessHART OEM Acceleration Program

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AirSprite Technologies, a developer of standards-compliant wireless sensor infrastructure systems for industrial automation, announced the AccelerATE WirelessHART OEM Program. AccelerATE gives HART field device manufacturers a simple, quick, and low cost path to enable their product lines to comply with the WirelessHART specification.

Participants in AccelerATE will work with AirSprite to investigate the wireless readiness of their products; seamlessly integrate their device-specific features and functions with AirSprite's WirelessHART intelligent infrastructure products; and determine how to best differentiate their wireless offerings. AccelerATE is designed to put instrument suppliers on the fast path to WirelessHART compliance.

"The WirelessHART standard is poised to take the process automation industry by storm," said Paul Sereiko, CEO of AirSprite Technologies. "We created AccelerATE to assist field device manufacturers in getting to market quickly with a standard-compliant wireless offering. Building on proven networking technology from Dust Networks, we've developed a core platform for quickly enabling OEM products to comply with WirelessHART."

AirSprite's products are designed to connect directly to installed instruments to unleash the powerful data that resides in intelligent field devices, integrating it with plant and enterprise applications. The combination of WirelessHART and products such as those from AirSprite will deliver dramatic improvements in operational efficiency, plant utilization, and employee productivity.

"Dust Networks is pleased to be working with AirSprite to accelerate the broad adoption of WirelessHART solutions in the industrial market," said Steve Toteda, Vice President of Marketing for Dust Networks. "AirSprite's AccelerATE program combined with Dust's proven wireless sensor networking systems will provide industrial field device vendors with the wireless networking expertise they need to dramatically improve time-to-market and meet the growing demand for wireless monitoring and control solutions."

AirSprite is targeting its products at many of the world's most crucial industries—oil and gas, chemical, power production and water and wastewater treatment. These industries have a large number of installed HART devices and share the critical need to access trapped HART data, because unplanned plant shutdowns can result in significant hardships.

AirSprite is now enrolling participants in AccelerATE. For more information or to get started with an investigation of instruments in AirSprite's lab, vendors should contact Brian Kirk, Director, Business Development, at [email protected] or 508-477-7343.

AirSprite Technologies, Inc. is developing a line of standards-compliant, wireless infrastructure products for industrial automation that will deliver dramatic improvements in operational efficiency, plant utilization, and employee productivity. Designed to connect directly to installed instruments, AirSprite products unleash the powerful data that resides in intelligent field devices, integrating it with plant and enterprise applications.
