Wireless sensor networks have been an active research topic during the past few years. Researchers have conducted extensive studies on various aspects of wireless sensor networks: information dissemination , energy-efficient routing  and security , etc. In addition, wireless sensor networks have been successfully applied to environmental and wildlife habitat monitoring. However, real time control over wireless network systems still is a problem and nobody can be confident enough about it; but the are some sporadic events in control systems such as alarms and events that can be less critical than periodic loops so that delay may have no effect on them. The main purpose of this paper is to show the performance of the wireless sensor networks using ZigBee standard in industrial control systems. This standard has been used specifically for loom control and its performance has been surveyed.
