New Honeywell wireless switch boxes for industrial applications

Honeywell is releasing the WOI Series Limitless Wireless Operator Interface, which expands the company's Limitless wireless switch and receiver portfolio by providing a packaged pushbutton controller for manufacturers and OEMs. The WOI Series adds a human interface device to the product-driven interfaces of the Limitless portfolio. With both momentary and maintained contact options, the Limitless Series now offers wireless control from both person and position.

Honeywell's Wireless Operator Interface is a controller designed to wirelessly turn on and off equipment (pumps, motors, drives, conveyors, and other industrial equipment), open or close gates/doors, or provide notification to remote locations. The WOI Series can be used in rugged industrial environments to notify appropriate departments when there are quality, machine, material out-of-stock, or other manufacturing issues.

Joseph Citrano, senior global product marketing manager, Sensing and Control, says: "The WOI Series provides a control option for users looking to avoid the wiring costs, maintenance issues, hazards, time and engineering that comes with a "˜wired' pushbutton. This new device expands Honeywell's Limitless wireless portfolio that includes monitors, Din-rail receivers, global limit switches, and heavy-duty limit switches."

Users can choose and install a desired operator (22mm rotary switch, key switch, key) or utilise one of Honeywell's pushbuttons in the WOI device. It communicates through Limitless receivers that provide PLC inputs or relay outputs connected directly to equipment to turn on LEDs or start/stop industrial equipment.

Honeywell's Limitless wireless network promises to be an easy and cost-effective option for those looking for a reliable wireless system. It includes the WDRR Din-rail receiver, WPMM monitor, WLS heavy-duty limit switch, and WGLA global limit switch. The entire Limitless system utilises the global, licence-free RF wireless 802.15.4 WPAN protocol that provides up to a 305m (1000ft) line-of-sight communication range, and prolongs battery life with advanced power management technology.

The Limitless WOI Series potentially could be used in industrial applications such as CNC action, conveyors, door and gate action, lifts, material handling, motor drives, presses, pumps, quality control buttons, special-purpose machines, stop/start machinery, stop/start production, and valve action. Potential transportation applications include agricultural equipment and movable machinery.
