In order to make modern measurement systems more flexible, faster and easier to configure and use, the implementation of wireless technology is needed into the Distributed Measurement System (DMS). There is a number of wireless standards available on the market, each one with unique characteristics. The paper is an attempt at categorizing different wireless standards to meet specific requirements of the DMSs. Innovative system architectures making use of modern microcontrollers and multiple wireless transmission standards were taken into account. In order to analyze the characteristics different wireless transmission standard (such as ZigBee and SimpliciTI.) in the operating condition available into the wireless DMS, experimental tests were devoted. The information obtained from theses experimental tests are used to develop a new design approach of the wireless connection into the DMS to integrate different standards and to achieve best transmission properties.
