HONEYWELL LAUNCHES SEARCHPOINT OPTIMA PLUS IR GAS DETECTOR WITH OPTIONAL HART® OUTPUT
Honeywell Analytics and BW Technologies by HoneywellMay 13, 2013 12:44 BST
POOLE, United Kingdom, July 2012 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced the launch of a new Searchpoint Optima Plus model variant, which now includes HART® (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) communications protocol.
Searchpoint Optima Plus is a market-leading Point IR (Infrared) gas detector offering high performance detection of a wide range of Hydrocarbon gases. With immunity to adverse weather affects such as snow, fog, rain and sunlight, and fail-to-safety operation, Searchpoint Optima Plus provides a flexible monitoring solution that is ideal for a diversity of hazardous applications.
The addition of HART® to this device enables sites using a 4-20mA output to gain
value-added functionality without any additional infrastructural wiring costs, because HART® works by superimposing a digital signal on an existing 4-20 mA cable, meaning that no additional cabling is required. HART® allows users to gain access to full information from Searchpoint Optima Plus anywhere in the loop, helping to save valuable time when carrying out routine maintenance work, because the full scope of work needed can be identified before entering the field.
Using HART® also eliminates the need for proprietary handheld devices because a single handheld HART® communication device can be used to access any HART® enabled equipment on site, delivering further cost savings.
