The industrial control and automation engineering discipline is a vast industry which encompasses a wide range of different types of control systems with associated instrumentation and equipment for industrial process control.

It is a field that is continually breaking through with new technologies that promise to be cost and time efficient, making automation faster. Wireless technology is one of the emerging technologies within in the industrial automation field. It has received wide popularity in industrial applications. Honeywell is one of the leading providers of industrial wireless technology on the market with their OneWireless system and is has been purchased by Murdoch University for the Pilot Plant. This project is concerned with the design, testing and commissioning of Honeywell’s OneWireless system for the pilot plant.

The OneWireless system is an industrial wireless system that uses multiple protocols and standards to offer flexibility in design and integration. There are two versions of the OneWireless system, an old version namely OneWireless R120 purchased by Murdoch in 2010. The second version is the OneWireless R300. This project is concerned with the designing, testing and commissioning of the Honeywell OneWireless R300 infrastructure for the pilot plant, and Honeywell OneWireless R120 design, testing and upgrade. Each of the systems have their own components that will be discussed in this report.

Deployment of OneWireless R120 faced a software compatibility challenge due to it being an older system. The OneWireless R300 only has a Modbus licence to be integrated with, hence it required extensive integration process.
