December 14, 2015 - The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute announced that Armstrong International has released a new Steam Trap Monitoring product that has successfully achieved ISA100 Wireless certification.

The Armstrong Intelligent Monitoring—AIM ST6700 Wireless Steam Trap Monitor from Armstrong International—is a wireless monitoring technology that efficiently monitors and evaluates steam trap operation, identifying the conditions of a steam trap to determine significant problems that could put operations at risk.

The AIM ST6700 can accurately detect issues, such as plugged and blow thru steam traps, that can result in failed equipment, loss of product, safety concerns and significant energy loss. Immediate failure notification from the AIMST6700 helps identify the exact failed steam trap, minimizing production losses and reducing energy consumption.

By using ISA100 Wireless, the AIM ST6700 is able to leverage a wireless protocol expressly built for industrial settings; it’s robust, reliable and secure with the ability to scale to thousands of networked devices.

The ISA100 Wireless certification provides assurance that the devices will interoperate in any ISA100 Wireless compliant network.

“Armstrong International has more than a century of thermal utility knowledge and experience. In fact, we’ve been at the forefront of automated steam trap monitoring for nearly 30 years. The introduction of this state-of-the-art technology, the AIM ST6700, serves to fortify our position as a global leader in energy management,” said Justin Grubka, Global Product Manager of Armstrong Smart Products.

“ISA100 Wireless is purpose built for large-scale deployments typical of the Armstrong steam trap monitors,” remarked Andre Ristaino, Managing Director of ISA100 WCI. “We are pleased to welcome the Armstrong product in the ISA100 Wireless portfolio.”

About the ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute (ISA100 WCI) is a non-profit industry organization that provides users and developers with market awareness, educational information, technical support, and compliance testing for the ISA100 family of standards.
