Honeywell Releases Wireless Monitoring Switches
Wireless limit switches for monitoring.
Minneapolis, MN — Honeywell is introducing a new series of wireless limit switches that combine great flexibility with proven harsh-duty packaging to increase efficiencies and improve safety for machines, equipment, OEMs, and operators. The new Limitless Series of switches and monitors offers a new way of working that delivers more flexibility, more up time, more reliability, and more freedom. Honeywell Sensing and Control develops this technology to be a truly cutting-edge, cost-saving solution.

The new Limitless product line combines the best of Micro Switch global switches with wireless technology. Limitless WGLA Series limit switches utilize the latest commercial off-the-shelf wireless technology, especially beneficial for remote monitoring applications where wiring, or wiring maintenance, is not physically possible or economically feasible. Limitless wireless switches and monitors use WLAN IEEE 802.15.4, which is license-free, globally acceptable, and calls for low power consumption. The switches also have a 16-bit address and 128-bit security key.

Up to 16 Limitless switches may be networked together and paired with one Limitless WPMM monitor. When used together, the components have up to a 304m (1000-ft.) line-of-sight communication range. These switches may be used in a variety of remote monitoring applications, including valves, construction/agricultural machines, cranes, grain diverters/flaps, lifts, material handling, door positioning, conveyors, presses, and specialty machines.
