Honeywell’s new WBX Series Wireless Hazardous Area Limit Switches can be used for position sensing for remote monitoring applications where wiring is not possible or economically feasible in many industrial and transportation applications.  Key features include:

  • Wireless design
  • Well-suited for tough environments
  • Reconfigurable
  • Reduce costs
  • Off-the-shelf batteries
  • Global use

Key features include:

  • Wireless design:
    Radio (license-free, global) WPAN 802.15.4, 2,4 GHz, P2P provides reliable, flexible and secure wireless transmission. Up to 305 m [1000 ft] line-of-sight communication range when used with a Honeywell Limitless™ WPMM Series Wireless Monitor or WDRR Series Receiver (sold separately).
  • Remote control and monitoring:
    License-free RF wireless protocol (IEEE 802.15.4) allows for remote control/monitoring of processes and equipment.
  • AES 128 bit encryption:
    Ensures that no unregistered node can successfully insert erroneous signals into a network or decode signals from a network, making the network secure from both eavesdropping and sabotage.
  • Well-suited for tough environments:
    IP67(self-certified), NEMA 4 sealed metal enclosure, with direct or remote mount antenna options, allows for use in most harsh environments. Powder-coated aluminum housing enhances durability and corrosion resistance.
  • Reconfigurable:
    Ability to reconfigure multiple WBX Series switches easily allows for adding, subtracting or relocating of Limitless™ WBX Series switches. Eliminates issues with wire connection integrity on moving equipment.
  • Reduces costs:
    Can reduce installation and maintenance costs because there are no wires, conduit, strain relief, clips, connectors, connection boxes, etc.
  • Off-the-shelf batteries:
    Batteries are available from electrical supply houses and distributors.
    They are readily available worldwide, thereby eliminating the need for specialized batteries.
  • Global use:
    Designed for global availability; variety of Limitless™ inputs with simple and universal PLC connections allows for use in most applications; simplifies design-in process, eliminates tooling costs and reduces manufacturing labor costs.
