Honeywell has announced enhancements to its Onewireless offering that will give industrial facilities more options to tailor wireless networks to best fit their needs.

Onewireless R200, which is now fully compliant with the ISA100.11a standard, will allow plants to design a wireless network with different types of wireless coverage.

Depending upon application requirements, plants can now design networks that provide wireless coverage for field instruments only, or coverage for field instruments and Wi-Fi devices.

Additionally, Onewireless R200 introduces features that can reduce the installation and maintenance costs of wireless field instrument networks by up to 50 per cent.

These features simplify how industrial facilities install and expand their wireless networks and help to maximise field transmitter battery life.

Onewireless is said to be the process industry’s first truly universal wireless mesh network solution.

It allows plants to use a single wireless network to accommodate thousands of wireless field devices that perform a range of functions – from asset monitoring to non-critical process control.

Onewireless R200 allows plants to create field instrument networks using the new Field Device Access Point and Wireless Device Manager features.

The Field Device Access Point is designed to support ISA100.11a field instruments by assuming message-routing duties, enabling users to connect wireless field instruments to the process-control network and route data from the field.

Plants can also take advantage of field instrument routing options that allow them create a network of battery-powered field instruments that communicate with each other, and route messages from neighbouring field instruments – including ISA100.11a devices from other vendors – to process control applications.

The Wireless Device Manager manages field instrument networks by serving as a gateway system and security manager, and ensuring that all communication between the field instruments and plant network is secure.

It also gives users a web-based interface that allows process and field instrument engineers with basic IT knowledge to quickly set up their ISA100.11a networks.

It reduces time required to commission, monitor and troubleshoot a wireless field instrument network.

Honeywell Control Systems

Honeywell Environmental and Combustion Controls is the leading innovator in heating controls, gas controls and water products that improve energy efficiency and water conservation, support regulatory compliance, and maintain safe, comfortable environments in homes and buildings.

With wired and wireless options, Honeywell heating controls combines ease and speed of installation with the best in comfort, energy efficiency and sophistication.

Honeywell is committed to addressing the 80 percent of UK homes without the Building Regulations’ minimum standard for energy efficient heating controls, and the 8.5 million homes without even a simple thermostat. Its latest innovations include TPI (Time Proportional and Integral) advanced energy saving control, which provides more accurate temperature control than traditional home controls and uniquely also matches boiler firing to system load, so the boiler operates much more efficiently.

Honeywell water controls include valves and accessories for water control, pressure reduction and regulation, backflow prevention and system balancing. They range from brass bodied products for plumbers to large cast iron valves for the water mains supply.

Technical help on any aspect of heating and water control is available on the websites below or by calling the Honeywell Technical Support Line during office hours on 08457 678999 (local rate for UK callers).
