How to Use Honeywell Wireless Transmitters for Industrial Applications

This post is for our Industrial Viewers. If you are tasked with monitoring information at a large industrial facility, you know there are important data points that go unchecked and unmonitored because they are either to far away or too hard to get to. This is changing. Due to safety requirements, the need for more and better data, and new wireless technologies like the Honeywell One Wireless Solution industrial plants are able to better manage their facilities.

If you are not sure which wireless solution best suits your application check out this white paper on Wireless solutions or contact one of the control pros at Stromquist & Company. You also might want to check out the Honeywell Industrial Controls Training Series on ControlTrends.
If you are using Industrial wireless transmitters we want to hear from you. Tell us about your experiences in comments.

Honeywell Industrial Controls Training Part 2

In this class Matt continues his discussion of when and how to use the Honeywell UDC2500 and UDC3200. Matt also shows us why the new Honeywell DR4500 Truline circular chart recorder is far superior to conventional “pen dragger” recorders. See how to power temperature, flow, humidity, and differential flow transmitters from either the Honeywell DR4500 circular recorders or by using the auxiliary output option on the Honeywell UDC3200.
Matt also introduces us to the different types of communication protocals used in industrial transmitters including foundation field bus, Honeywell DE, and Hart. Learn when and how these protocols are used and why the Honeywell MCTOOL KIT communicator is the only communicator you will need to set up and communicate with all your transmitters from Honeywell to Rosemount.
