To facilitate automated monitoring in remote, hazardous, or hard-to-access locations, XYR 5000 wireless transmitters from Honeywell Process Solutions can measure and communicate process variables online without requiring wiring or external power. The firm reports that XYR 5000 gives users the flexibility to gather information about process and assets in places where traditional hardwired transmitters would be too costly, difficult, or time-consuming to implement.



XYR 5000 includes devices for accurately monitoring gauge pressure, absolute pressure, temperature, and ultrasonic noise, as well as for detecting steam and gas leaks. The line also includes an analog input interface for adding wireless capabilities to wired devices.

These instruments wirelessly transmit measurements to a base radio networked to a control system or data acquisition device, such as a recorder or PC. Each base radio accepts signals from up to 50 transmitters. The base radio also interfaces with Honeywell's PC-based Wireless Configuration Tool, which offers real-time indication, trending, reporting, and configuration capabilities. The base radio is available with either Modbus or a 4-20mA analog signal output for flexible communications.

In addition, XYR 5000 transmitters feature three-to-five-year battery life and a low-battery alarm. Self-checking software and hardware continuously monitor instrument operation to identify and report sensor or device parameters that are out of specification. Advanced radio technology employing frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) supports reliable communication between the transmitters and the control room. www.honeywell.com
