Honeywell has added universal input/output (I/O) transmitters to its family of XYR 6000 wireless products. The transmitters allow manufacturers to wirelessly monitor more plant points with fewer devices. The company says that 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% in costs over similar devices that can transmit signals from only two inputs.
This XYR 6000 family of transmitters 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. (www.honeywell.com/ps/wireless)
