Design and implementation of ARM Micro controller based wireless industrial automation system, is discussed in this paper. The system consists of a coordinator module and a sensor module. The coordinator module is the centralized unit which is connected with the monitoring computer. It collects the information from all sensor modules and provides that information to the end user through TCP/IP network. The sensor module is an ARM microcontroller for monitoring and controlling the various parameters of a plant. The communication between these two modules is done using the zig-bee technology for changing preset values and controlling plant parameters from a remote location. The coordinator is implemented using the ARM microcontroller. The ARM microcontroller is used at the sensor modules and they are programmed using embedded C. The experimental results obtained demonstrate the usefulness of the proposed system in terms of the low power consumption, low cost, targeted towards automation and remote control applications.
