In this study, a new testbed which has a WSAN structure and is utilized for monitoring and controlling of industrial systems is designed and implemented. In order to investigate the performance of the testbed developed, a first order plus dead time process control system is tested using both of on-off with hysteresis and PID algorithms, respectively. In the light of the discussion given through the study, it can easily be deduced that, experiments related to monitoring and controlling of industrial systems can be realized by the testbed, easily, and lots of time can be saved from creating an experimental environment.
