??Hi Vishnu:The 100 ms is the transmission rate, i.e. every 100 ms the data is trmtsaitned by the radio. The ISA100.11a standard is designed to support a very high data transmission rate. The sampling rate at the sensor level is to be defined by field-instrument vendors. We sample data every second and our fastest transmission rate, which is the fastest in the market, is 1 sec. We are able to implement such a fast reporting rate thanks to the infrastructure devices that we have developed. We also take advantage of the backbone router function defined by ISA100.11a. This allows a field instrument to act as a non routing field instrument, i.e. it will only send its data to a backbone router device such as Honeywell’s Multinode or Field Device Access Point, or Cisco’s 1552S Access Point which are line powered (24VDC or 120/230V AC) devices that act as repeaters. This is really the only way you can achieve multi-year battery life for devices that require fast reporting rates such as 1 or 5 sec.Soroush
