Honeywell's OneWireless Gauge Reader enables real-time diagnostic and equipment health management
The OneWireless Gauge Reader is the latest addition to Honeywell’s family of wireless solutions for industrial manufacturers. The product wirelessly monitors manual gauge readings from existing dial gauges, allowing operators to analyze critical equipment health and process information and make decisions to improve plant operations. Honeywell jointly developed the product with Cypress Envirosystems, a subsidiary of Cypress Semiconductor Corp., and it will integrate with Honeywell’s OneWireless mesh network.
The OneWireless Gauge Reader non-intrusively attaches to existing dial gauges without requiring the plant to disrupt on-going processes or remove old gauges, break pressure seals or run wires. The device provides gauge measurement data that is displayed quickly on operator consoles in the control room and on mobile field devices. The control system can proactively send alerts to operators to notify them when gauges exceed certain limits.
