Honeywell Limitless WDRR. Courtesy: Honeywell InternationalHoneywell recently introduced its new Limitless Wireless Din-Rail Receiver (WDRR) for industrial, construction, machine, material handling, and heavy transportation applications, including agricultural equipment, cranes, lifts, conveyors, grain diverters, and door positions.

The new WDRR is a din-rail or panel-mountable receiver designed to receive wireless signals from up to 14 different position-sensing switches and communicate the individual switch status to a programmable logic controller (PLC) or any controllers capable of receiving NPN/PNP inputs.

Limitless wireless switching can reportedly save up to 60% compared to traditional wired switching by reducing installation time, conduit, wire, clips, and other accessories. Limitless also enables sensing capabilities where it is impossible or very difficult to run cabling, according to Honeywell.

The Limitless wireless network is an easy-to-implement solution for those looking for a cost-effective and reliable switching solution. It includes the WDRR and WPMM receivers, the WLS and WGLA limit switches, utilizes the global, license-free RF wireless 802.15.4 WPAN protocol, provides up to a 305 m (1000 ft) line-of-sight communication range, and prolongs battery life with advanced power management technology.
