Monitoring in hazardous areas

08 June 2010

Honeywell's XYR6000 wireless position sensor helps improve overall reliability by giving users the ability to remotely monitor a number of applications ranging from valve position to safety shower emergency use.

Based on the Micro Switch CX hazardous area switch, the XYR6000 wireless position sensor monitors position when used in conjunction with OneWireless systems, sending the signal from remote or potentially hazardous areas. Featuring full UL, ATEX, and IECEx approvals, the XYR6000 Series has calibration within 270 degrees rotation to apply in most linear and/or rotary position sensing applications. Its analog output provides true position span output in both percentages and degrees.

In addition to eliminating manual monitoring, the sensor's accuracy improves safety by identifying linear or rotary valve positions, minimising the risk of unwanted fluid release or unplanned product contamination. When used for safety shower notification, the sensor can serve as an emergency response trigger. The sensor also simplifies maintenance by electronically tagging each valve in the system by identifying valves that have degraded or been damaged. This reduces the need for field technicians to manually inspect valves for maintenance.
