Honeywell boosts One Wireless network
Houston, March 27, 2013
Honeywell, a Fortune 100 diversified technology and manufacturing leader, has announced the launch of its OneWireless Network Release 210, which incorporates several new features that make wireless technology easier to deploy and operate, and result in lower deployment and operational costs.
New features in Release 210 include over-the-air field device provisioning and a Gateway General Client Interface (GCI) made possible by the ISA100 standard; and native integration of OneWireless field networks into Honeywell’s Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS), sadi Honeywell in its statement.
“Wireless technology is transforming the industrial landscape and we are trying to make it even easier for end users to deploy and use,” explained Ray Rogowski, the global marketing director, Wireless, Honeywell Process Solutions.
“With OneWireless Release 210, users can benefit from the flexibility and scalability offered by the ISA100 standard while maintaining high performance and reliability,” he stated.
With the over-the-air provisioning feature, field devices can now be configured and commissioned without having to invest in handheld devices or needing to perform provisioning locally at the device. The result is faster and less costly deployment and improved worker safety, said Honeywell in its statement.
The GCI feature, enabled by the ISA100 standard, allows operations to continue using legacy protocols and proprietary applications while making it easier to wirelessly expand those applications throughout the plant, it added.
Based in New Jersey, Honeywell serves customers worldwide with aerospace products and services; control technologies for buildings, homes and industry; turbochargers; and performance materials.-TradeArabia News Service
