XYR 6000 valve position sensor

Honeywell has announced that it has added the XYR 6000 valve position sensor to its Onewireless industrial wireless portfolio. The XYR 6000 valve position sensor helps improve overall plant reliability by giving users the ability to remotely monitor a greater number of applications within their processing facilities. Based on the Honeywell Micro Switch CX series hazardous location analogue sensor, the XYR 6000 valve position sensor monitors the position of the valve when used in Onewireless systems, sending the signal from remote or potentially dangerous areas of the plant. The sensor carries all the appropriate hazardous location certifications, which makes it suitable for various applications such as monitoring valve positioner status, manual process valve position, safety shower and eye bath notification, tank overflow alarms, damper and louver position, door/gate position, or other applications where installing wires is inefficient, cost-prohibitive or simply unsafe. 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. The XYR 6000 valve position sensor also simplifies maintenance by electronically tagging each valve in the system, identifying valves that have degraded or been damaged.
