The Honeywell OneWireless Adapter (OWA) allows manufacturers to improve plant efficiency by converting field devices that use the HART protocol into devices that can transmit data over an ISA100.11a-compliant wireless network.
Honeywell has announced a vendor-neutral process control suite, which allows plant operators to centrally monitor and control both Honeywell and non-Honeywell process control systems within their plants. It is designed to let operators and management break out of the information silos that can often occur with advanced process control (APC) systems.
Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has announced the availability of virtualisation support for its Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) for both DCS and SCADA applications.
Honeywell has announced the launch of its Remote Collaboration, Optimisation and Operations solution, designed to help customers share their expertise across remote facilities, improve safety in hazardous environments and optimise production and improve recovery.
Honeywell has launched its OneWireless Rotating Equipment Solution, a suite of products and services that forms part of Honeywell Process Solutions’ (HPS) Reliability and Asset Management portfolio. The solution is designed to provide a means to monitor essential and critical plant assets wirelessly and in real time, saving customers money through improved uptime and reduced maintenance and repair costs.
The Field Device Configurator (FDC) software application for the MCToolkit handheld configurator device allows operators to more easily configure and assess the health of HART 5, 6 and 7 instrumentation.
Honeywell has announced that its FlexLine level gauges have been approved by the TÜV for use in SIL2-rated loops, allowing industrial facilities to use the devices in applications that require the stringent certification to prevent safety incidents. The gauges are used in overfill protection loops to prevent spillage and mitigate the likelihood of a catastrophic accident, effectively stopping overfill before it happens.
Honeywell has introduced the RC500 remote terminal unit (RTU), a modular and scalable controller that integrates with SCADA technology to give industrial manufacturers tighter control of remote operations. The RC500 is designed to withstand harsh environments and is suitable for remote automation needs such as those found in oil and gas applications. It can also operate using minimal electricity, making it suitable to run on solar power, and for providing continuous monitoring of remote, fixed assets.
Honeywell has announced new features for its 900 Control Station touch screen operator interface, part of the HC900 control system, used in industrial facilities to control stand-alone processes and SCADA applications. The control station now includes features that allow engineers to more quickly configure the system and operators to monitor their processes more efficiently and reduce data-entry error.
Several enhancements to the Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) help process manufacturers more easily and cost-effectively manage their automation and control systems. Experion R400 includes advancements that lower the cost of open system ownership, with features such as an extended support life, flexible, direct on-process migration paths, virtualisation and easier installation and migration. These elements are intended to allow industrial facilities to focus on leveraging open systems benefits to improve business instead of managing the challenges with systems themselves.
Honeywell has released Field Advisor software. Based on technology acquired from Shell Global Solutions in December 2009, the software helps plants to reduce costly emergency work and unplanned shutdowns by allowing mobile operators to more easily rectify problems in the field, before they escalate and result in equipment failure.
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.
Honeywell has announced it is providing virtualisation technology for its Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS). This technology can help manufacturers streamline Experion system management and lower the total cost of ownership by up to 30%.
A software upgrade to the ST 3000 range of smart pressure transmitters that features enhanced on-board diagnostics to simplify maintenance by automatically telling plant personnel how the devices are functioning has been announced.
Honeywell has added universal input/output (I/O) transmitters to its family of XYR 6000 wireless products. The transmitters allow manufacturers to wirelessly monitor more plant points with fewer devices.
Honeywell has announced it has added oxidation reduction potential (ORP) measurement - a key parameter for minimising corrosion in power plant equipment such as turbines and piping - to its HPW7000 high-purity water measurement system, which should enable plants to better maintain critical equipment, reduce capital expenses and lower chemical usage.
Honeywell has announced that its Enraf servo gauge has received SIL-2 certification from TÜV Rheinland for use in safety applications, such as tank overfill protection, that help prevent hazardous incidents in bulk-liquid storage facilities.
Honeywell has released its Carbon Management Information Solution to help Australian process manufacturers to more easily understand their obligations under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act (NGER).Â
The FlexLine wireless radar gauge from Honeywell is an ISA100.11a-ready wireless radar gauge that helps process manufacturers monitor tank levels and prevent hazardous incidents in their plants and terminals.
Honeywell has announced two enhancements to its UniSim Design simulation software that provide engineers with a greater range of tools to build and test plant processes.
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.
Honeywell's OneWireless R120 features a redundant wireless system gateway (WSG), a critical prerequisite for wireless process control.
Honeywell has added two discrete-input transmitters to its family of XYR 6000 wireless devices. The STXW 500 and the STTW 401 transmitters can convert any measurement device with a contact-closure switch input into a wireless input, enabling manufacturers to decrease costs and improve efficiency by wirelessly monitoring more processes at their plants. The transmitters are suitable for applications such as wirelessly monitoring level switches, pump status and system alarms.

Control system performance can have a huge impact on return investment throughout the life cycle of a plant. A successful modernisation program can help reduce your TCO, increase production rates, manage risks and extend both system life and performance.
In most process industries, the management of energy consumption has become a high priority in recent years. But standalone and ad hoc efforts to manage energy will not achieve the results that can be achieved when a comprehensive life cycle approach is used.
As part of its Solution Enhancement Support Program (SESP), OneSteel implemented a secure, online connection to Honeywell’s global technical assistance centre (TAC) support team enabling faster and more accurate problem identification and resolution.
Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Wiri Oil Services Ltd is the city’s only petroleum depot and distribution centre for petroleum fuel. It is connected by pipeline to Marsden Point Oil Refinery in New Zealand. The company receives four products from a refinery through a pipeline and jet fuel is sent to Auckland Airport via a second pipeline.
Industrial users have historically been a bit cautious about taking advantage of wireless technology. This caution is generally due to concerns related to critical infrastructure security and reliability. However, if the right wireless solution is chosen, adopters of industrial wireless technology can have the best of both worlds.
