Company and Product News

Honeywell introduced the SmartLine Wireless Pressure Transmitter, which offers a flexible, scalable, secure and cost-effective solution for both pressure monitoring and control when combined with the company’s wireless network technology.  The enhancement and evolution to the highly successful XYR 6000 wireless transmitter enables users to choose the wireless protocol best suited to their specific process automation applications.

With its multi-protocol-capable OneWireless Network infrastructure, Honeywell is one of the first to support the two leading industrial wireless protocols – ISA100 Wireless and WirelessHART – giving customers more flexibility when implementing wireless systems.  The SmartLine Wireless Pressure transmitter allows plants to use wireless for control, and seamlessly integrates with Honeywell’s Experion control system.

Honeywell’s OneWireless Network and SmartLine Wireless Pressure solutions reportedly offer performance and cost advantages for both current and new users of industrial wireless technology by:

  • Providing a wireless network with increased power, faster update rates, reduced infrastructure requirements and wider deployment options
  • Incorporating additional noise reduction to improve performance in control applications
  • Simplifying installation and commissioning
  • Utilizing long-life commodity batteries
  • Operating off 24-volt power, optionally, in the field
  • Implementing proven cybersecurity

According to Honeywell, this wireless solution reduces capital, installation and lifecycle costs typically associated with traditional instrumentation.  Its wireless platform is reliable, secure, scalable and easy to use, and interoperates with existing wireless installations to protect technology investments.

Honeywell designed its wireless system to allow customers to install a single high-performance network for process monitoring with the flexibility to add more critical applications, like control, if and when they are ready.  Its single network allows customers currently utilizing XYR 6000 wireless transmitters to painlessly add SmartLine Wireless Pressure to these networks.
