Honeywell WLS Limitless Wireless Limit Switch

Product Announcement from Honeywell Sensing and Control


Honeywell WLS Limitless Wireless Limit Switch -Image

                      Honeywell has expanded the Limitless WLS series of Heavy Duty Wireless Limit Switches with an eyelet-pull operating head that can be used to attach a rope, cable or chain. It also can be used on cranes as an anti-two-block (A2B) switch.

Honeywell’s Limitless™ Series of limit switches is ideal for remote monitoring applications where wiring or wire maintenance is not physically possible or economically feasible. Combining this greater flexibility with proven harsh-duty packaging can result in increased efficiencies and improved safety for machines, equipment, OEMs, and operators.

  • Enables presence/absence detection in remote parts of application/machinery, where wiring is an issue or not feasible
  • Ability to reconfigure multiple switches easily allows for adding, subtracting or relocating Limitless™ WLS switches
  • Reduces installation/maintenance costs with no wires, conduit, strain relief, clips, connectors, or connection boxes
  • Eliminates issues with wire connection integrity on moving equipment
  • Consumes ultra-low power to prolong battery life

FEATURES:

Wireless Design

  • Radio (license-free and global): WPAN 802.15.4, 2.4 GHz, point-to-point
  • FCC 15, IC, ACMA, ETSI, COFETEL, WPC, IDA, ANATEL, SRRC, and KCC
  • Up to 1000 ft [305 m] line of sight communication range when used with a Limitless™ WPMM Series wireless monitor or WDRR Series receiver module (sold separately)
  • Reliable, flexible, and secure wireless transmission
  • Long-life standard replaceable battery
  • Direct or remote mount antenna options
