WWCS compliant with all industry standards

 The Wireless Wave Control System is compliant with all industry standards and safety directives. The wireless technology of WWCS is based on the highest standards in the industry and approved for ‘Zone 2’-locations.

The Wireless Wave™ Control System (WWCS) replaces traditional signal cables with a wireless wave protocol. All WWCS modules comply with the relevant industry standards and safety directives, such as the Machine Directive (2006/42/EG), EMC-directives (2004/108/EG)and the ATEX-directives (94/9/EG).

CE-marking and certification includes:
+ Machine Directives (2006/42/EG)
+ EMC-directives (2004/108/EG)
+ ATEX-directives (94/9/EG).
+ IP68 - certification
+ SIR - test certificate

Industrial approved protocol
The Wireless Wave protocol is based upon the international IEEE standard 802.15.4. On top of this standard an extra specific WWCS-protocol has been developed in order to meet strict safety requirements of the industrial cleaning world. ‘The standard 802.15.4 is extremely suitable for use in industrial environments, and is also used for e.g. the Wireless HART protocol for wireless sensors in the process industry. Industry leaders such as ABB, Endress+Hauser en Siemens have also chosen for IEEE 802.15.4 for wireless communications in heavy-industrial environments’, says Paul Bekkers, CEO of DERC Waterjetting.

Safe
The frequency and protocol will not interfere with industrial processes or vice versa. ‘The Wireles Wave protocol has been developed with safe and reliable wireless connections as first requirements, as well as the use of the protocol next to other active radio systems within the industry. All Wireless Wave Control System modules continuously evaluate the quality of the connection and actively search for free frequencies in a specific environment. The constant bi-directional communication guarantees a perfect connection between the modules of every separate WWWCS.’

Invention of DERC Waterjetting and Mourik
The Wireless Wave Control System is the result of a R & D alliance between the Dutch companies DERC Waterjetting and Mourik. They also own the patents, trademarks and all rights of the WWCS and its modules. The innovation is available for the market in May 2012.
