Honeywell Adds Universal I/O Transmitters to Onewireless Product Line
XYR 6000 Transmitters Convert Up to Three Measurements into Wireless Sensor Signals; Help Plants Save 30 Percent Over Similar Devices
PHOENIX, - Honeywell (NYSE:HON) has added universal input/output (I/O) transmitters to its family of XYR(TM) 6000 wireless products. The transmitters allow manufacturers to wirelessly monitor more plant points with fewer devices. By transmitting signals from up to three different types of inputs - including measurement devices with a high-level analog, temperature or milli-volt, or contact-closure switch input - the XYR 6000 Universal I/O transmitters can help plants save up to 30 percent in costs over similar devices that can transmit signals from only two inputs.
This XYR 6000 family of transmitters, which includes a version that can transmit up to two inputs and provide a local discrete output, is ideal for applications such as wirelessly monitoring level switches, pump status and system alarms. The devices also carry intrinsically safe approvals from FM Global and the Canadian Standards Association for use in hazardous areas.
"More manufacturers today are considering wireless monitoring to improve asset management while saving costs, but converting to a wireless infrastructure isn't always easy," said Raymond Rogowski, global product marketing manager wireless, Honeywell Process Solutions. "Devices such as the XYR 6000 Universal I/O Transmitter can ease the transition to wireless and help plants reap the overall safety, equipment reliability and process efficiency benefits that come with it."
The new devices complement the other wireless transmitters in Honeywell's XYR 6000 product line, which includes transmitters for: absolute, gauge and differential pressure, temperature, analog input, discrete inputs, corrosion monitoring and valve position. These devices are critical elements of Honeywell's overall OneWireless(TM) solution, the company's industrial wireless mesh network designed to meet ISA100.11a hardware requirements. The network can simultaneously support thousands of devices - including various transmitters, mobile operator technology and physical security equipment - to more efficiently monitor processes, assets and people.
