OneWireless XYR 6000 Valve Position Sensor
Series WCX Specifications
34-ST-03-41 February 2010
The OneWireless™ XYR™ 6000 Valve Position Sensor allows
remote, reliable valve position monitoring in a variety of
applications to avoid the time and safety risk of manually
monitoring valves in hazardous areas and remote installations.
Wireless technology eliminates the need for communications
cabling or power line installation, saving time and money.
The XYR 6000 Valve Position Sensor is based on the proven
and reliable MICRO SWITCH™ CX series hazardous location
limit switch available for more than 40 years. These robust
sensors are constructed to withstand the pressure of an
internal explosion.
By combining the proven functionality of MICRO SWITCH
technology with an enabler like the OneWireless network,
position sensors can now be used for many more remote
monitoring applications, including: positioners, manual process
valves, safety shower notification, tank level indication, door
position, louver/damper position, or any other presence,
absence or position sensing application where installing wires
is inefficient or cost-prohibitive.
The XYR 6000 Valve Position Sensor delivers the following
Reliable Operations
Accurately monitor process parameters in real-time
Rapid disaster recovery capability
Identify stuck valve condition
Monitor true valve position to minimize risk of fluid
mixing or cross-contamination
Enhance Safety
Reduce need for human site monitoring in areas that
pose a safety risk
Reduce Environmental Risk
Reduce the potential for environmental incidence
through the explosion-proof packaging of the sensor
Identify true position of valve to minimize risk of
unwanted fluid release
Achieve Higher Efficiency and Productivity
Increase process efficiencies through accurate valve
position monitoring
Electronic tagging of all valves in system
Improve efficiency of scheduled maintenance by
targeting valves that have degraded
Scalability and flexibility with the ability to add/move
valve position sensors
Remotely monitor from anywhere in the facility
Reduce monitoring costs by eliminating manual valve
Reduce potential for unintended mixing of fluids
Lower System and Commissioning Costs
Reduce wiring material and labor costs
Easily and quickly retrofit existing equipment
Reduce system complexity
Configure set points electronically
Eliminate the need for conduit easements
Reduce or eliminate need for additional permits
OneWireless XYR 6000 Valve Position Sensor
Enabled by the OneWireless Network
Honeywell’s OneWireless universal mesh network supports multiple industrial protocols and applications simultaneously, providing a
single industrial wireless mesh network that is simple to manage and efficient to operate. OneWireless helps optimize plant
productivity and reliability, improve safety and security, and ensure regulatory compliance.
Supporting both transmitters such as Honeywell's XYR 6000 and XYR 5000 and Wi-Fi applications such as IntelaTrac PKS,
Experion Mobile Station, vibration sensors, personnel/asset location devices, this network delivers a global solution with robust
security, predictable power management and multi-speed monitoring.
Honeywell has been implementing wireless solutions since 2003, installing wireless sensor and Wi-Fi networks for industrial
handhelds and laptops. Honeywell engineered a single multi-protocol, multi-standard wireless network that communicates
simultaneously with Wi-Fi devices and ISA100-ready transmitters.
The OneWireless network is an industrial wireless mesh network that extends the process control network into the field to cover an
entire facility. The wireless mesh network is formed with industrial wireless nodes, called multinodes, that self-discover to create an
industrial mesh network within seconds.
These nodes include IEEE802.11 and IEEE802.15.4 standard radios which communicate simultaneously with Wi-Fi clients and
ISA100-ready I/O devices such as XYR 6000 transmitters. It’s flexible enough to add and move devices as needed without
degrading reliability.
