Limitless switch

From Honeywell comes a series of wireless limit switches that combine flexibility with harsh-duty packaging to increase efficiency and improve safety for machines, equipment, OEMs and operators.

Marketed under the brand-name Limitless, Honeywell Sensing and Control's latest product line combines MICRO SWITCH global switches with wireless technology. Limitless WGLA series limit switches feature the latest commercial off-the-shelf wireless technology for remote monitoring applications in which wiring, or wiring maintenance, is not physically possible or economically feasible.

Limitless wireless switches and monitors use 802.15.4 since it is license-free, globally acceptable and requires low power consumption. They also employ WLAN RF 24GHz standard radio bands, conform to international IEEE 802.15.4 standards, and feature a 16bit address and 128bit security key.

Up to 16 Limitless switches may be networked together and paired with one Limitless WPMM monitor. When used together, Limitless components have up to a 304m line-of-sight communication range. These switches may be used in a variety of remote monitoring applications, including valves, construction/agricultural machines, cranes, grain diverters/flaps, lifts, material handling, door positioning, conveyors, presses, and specialty machines.
