November 3, 2017 — Honeywell announced a connected gas detector designed to keep industrial operations safe while making set-up, maintenance and compliance reporting faster by leveraging Bluetooth connectivity.
The Sensepoint XRL fixed gas detector monitors industrial operations for specific hazardous gases, such as carbon monoxide or methane. Sensepoint XRL is Bluetooth-enabled, meaning it can be set up and maintained remotely using a smartphone app.
When paired with an intrinsically safe smartphone available from Honeywell, a single worker can perform many standard maintenance tasks, including set-up, commissioning, and calibration wirelessly from up to 33 feet away. Sensepoint XRL and the app also can produce system reports necessary for safety and environmental regulatory compliance.
Sensepoint XRL is certified for explosive area applications, and is suitable for wastewater, utilities, power generation, laboratories, and downstream oil and gas operations and applications ranging from laboratories to boiler rooms, and from fuel stations to warehouses.
The detector monitors for hazardous levels of one targeted gas from among 23 toxic and combustible gases, including methane, carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide. The detector is IP 66-rated and uses a metal enclosure to stand up to rugged use, including hosedowns.
Sensepoint XRL is part of Honeywell’s Sensepoint line of connected gas detectors, announced in May, which also includes the Sensepoint XCL for commercial and light-industrial applications. Honeywell’s gas detectors are part of the company’s broad portfolio of industrial safety products and solutions, which include equipment to protect workers from helmet to boot, including hearing protection, safety harnesses, respiratory and electrical safety equipment, turnout gear for first responders and protective eye-, hand- and footwear.
Honeywell is a Fortune 100 software-industrial company that delivers industry specific solutions that include aerospace and automotive products and services; control technologies for buildings, homes, and industry; and performance materials globally.
