WINA is a coalition of industrial end-user companies, suppliers, industry organizations, software developers, system integrators, and others interested in the advancement of wireless solutions for industry. WINA will join WBF, formerly World Batch Forum, and OMAC, the Open Modular Architecture Control Users Group, among charter members of The Automation Federation.

WINA aims to communicate the benefits of using wireless technology in industrial applications, to improve confidence in wireless technology and access to solutions, and to focus on the end-user. “By coordinating our work with the work of the other member organizations, we can more effectively fulfill our mission as an organization,” said WINA Chairman of the Board Hesh Kagan, director, technology mar-keting and new ventures at Invensys Process Systems, Foxboro, Mass. “We look forward to becoming even more successful by expanding our activities in the global marketplace and leveraging our partnerships in the industry.”
