Research on Application of ZigBee Technology in Flammable and Explosive Environment
Author(s) Yang Li, Ke Zhang
Wireless Sensor Network based on ZigBee technology is a wireless network which is composed of many nodes of ZigBee RF chips, sensors and MCUs, especially suitable for application of the remote monitoring system in flammable and explosive environments. This paper presents the characteristics and advantages of ZigBee technology, also discusses the system for hardware and software design. This system effectively fulfills the remote monitoring in flammable and explosive environments and posses high practical values.
