Honeywell adds new members to PKS advantage program

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Honeywell today announced three new member companies of the PKS Advantage program for its OneWireless Network and industrial wireless products and solutions: GasSecure, Redline Communications and Purelink. The new members add support for wireless hydrocarbon leak detection, broadband wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, and real-time location solutions to the wireless platform.

GasSecure offers its ISA100 wireless gas detector for hydrocarbon leakage monitoring. The GS01 is the world's first wireless infrared detector. It is based on microelectromechanical system (MEMS) technology to reduce power consumption and has two years of battery life with continuous monitoring.

The other new members are wireless M2M communications specialists Redline Communications and Purelink, manufacturers of real-time location systems (RTLS), long range tracking badges, tags and software.

Redline's RDL-3000 Elte-MT solution is the first ruggedized and M2M-optimized wide-area wireless system to be PKS-compliance certified. Providing M2M connectivity to link sensors and security cameras over widely dispersed areas for 'digital oil fields' with central automation and management systems, it will be first of a number of systems made available to Honeywell wireless users.

Purelink, meanwhile, uses its Core Technology DILS (Digital Impulse Location System) to engineer RTLS systems and software used by customers worldwide to locate people and equipment in buildings, airports, manufacturing plants and other industries. It will enable its products to seamlessly integrate with Honeywell's OneWireless Network to deliver location-based, context-aware applications for process optimization, security and safety.

Using Honeywell's wireless solutions, customers are able to connect easily with a range of products from PKS Advantage members, as well as Honeywell's own portfolio, for secure solutions with much lower installed costs than using conventional hard wiring. The PKS Advantage program already includes leading solutions from Beamex, Cape Software Inc., Flowserve Corporation, Flow Control Division, Metso Automation, Pepperl+Fuchs and Turck Inc., among others.
