Honeywell's newest addition to its industrial wireless portfolio, the OneWireless Adapter, allows manufacturers to improve plant efficiency by converting field devices that use the HART protocol, one of the most widely used instrumentation protocols in the process industries, into devices that can transmit data over an ISA100.11a-compliant wireless network.
By allowing any HART device to communicate over the wireless network, the OneWireless Adapter helps improve the flow of information and gives operators the data they need to make the right decisions at the right time.
“Plants want to upgrade to wireless field devices to improve their plant efficiency and asset reliability, but typically they want to avoid the expense of a ‘rip and replace’ approach with their wired instrumentation,” said Ray Rogowski, Global Wireless Marketing Director. “A good strategy for getting started with wireless technology is to take as much advantage of the existing infrastructure as possible, which is exactly what the OneWireless Adapter can help plants do.”
Honeywell’s extensive OneWireless portfolio includes field instrumentation, input/output devices, mobile devices, network components and related services. It enables plants to support a wide range of wireless devices from multiple suppliers on a single mesh network. Based on the global ISA100.11a standard, OneWireless provides highly reliable data communications in harsh industrial environments, as well as features that provide secure data encryption, fast data response time, prolonged battery life, easy installation and room for future expansion as plant needs change.
