Honeywell OneWireless R200

Enhancements to the OneWireless offering are intended to give industrial facilities more options to tailor wireless networks to best fit their needs. OneWireless R200, which is now fully compliant with the ISA100.11a standard, will allow plants to design a wireless network with different types of wireless coverage. Depending on application requirements, plants can design networks that provide either wireless coverage for field instruments only or coverage for both field instruments and Wi-Fi devices. This provides plants with more flexibility while reducing the total cost of ownership.

Additionally, the R200 introduces features that are claimed to reduce the installation and maintenance costs of wireless field instrument networks by up to 50%. These features simplify how industrial facilities install and expand their wireless networks and help to maximise field transmitter battery life.

It allows plants to create field instrument networks using the field device access point and wireless device manager features. The field device access point is designed to support ISA100.11a field instruments by assuming message-routing duties, enabling users to connect wireless field instruments to the process control network and route data from the field. Plants can also use field instrument routing options that allow them create a network of battery-powered field instruments that communicate with each other, and route messages from neighbouring field instruments - including ISA100.11a devices from other vendors - to process control applications.
