While sensors traditionally have required the use of wires, their wireless counterparts have become increasingly popular since the ratification of the WirelessHART and ISA100.11a specifications. Within water and wastewater, it is expected that these wireless technologies might find first use within asset monitoring, paving the way for the implementation of condition-based monitoring schemes. In this paper, we will introduce condition-based maintenance and wireless instrumentation, including high-level requirements and operational drivers for using this technology in condition-based maintenance. We will also present a pilot installation on wireless vibration monitoring of several pumps in a water pumping station in Oslo, Norway.
