Rajant Kinetic Mesh® Networks with Intrinsically Safe Rajant BreadCrumb® Nodes: Helping Petrochemical Plants Unlock Industry 4.0 Productivity Gains

Industry 4.0 applications such as augmented reality (AR), robotics, and real-time equipment analytics are enabling the petrochemical industry to realize new market growth and significant productivity gains. However, these advanced applications need full Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity to operate effectively – a requirement that Wi-Fi and two-way radio WANs cannot fill.

While IIoT is clearly a critical part of establishing Industry 4.0 capabilities plant wide, deploying a network that will supply anytime, anywhere connectivity in a complex and inherently hazardous environment requires intrinsically safe network infrastructure.

Rajant ME4-2450R-C1D2 BreadCrumbs are wireless nodes that are built for C1D2 Hazardous Locations, enabling you to deploy these nodes on fixed and mobile plant infrastructure, equipment, and vehicles without mounting in an explosion box. Private Kinetic Mesh networks, built with intrinsically safe BreadCrumbs, can dynamically connect the people, assets, and devices that comprise every aspect of your current and future operations. The self-healing, peer-to-peer mesh networks give you the communication flexibility, reliability, high performance, and scalability you need to maximize productivity and innovation, minimize risks, decrease downtime and costs, scale rapidly, increase security, and stay ahead of competitors.

A Rajant Kinetic Mesh network is the right communication solution for your smart, safe petrochemical plant operations.
