5 Honeywell Analytics XNX
A Brief Introduction to the Honeywell Analytics XNX Gas Sensor Transmitter
This article provides a brief introduction to the Honeywell Analytics XNX product. Its capabilities can be adapted for a variety of applications.
XNX is a flexible transmitter that accepts an input from any of Honeywell Analytics’ range of gas sensor technologies
Designed for flexibility and future proofing, the XNX offers HART EDDL software and global approvals. Its modular design allows it to integrate with a variety of gas sensor technologies and industry-standard PLCs. In addition to HART and EDDL software, the XNX can communicate via various methods including CAN bus.
XNX provides easy one-man operation with a range of output signals. XNX is compatible with a broad range of Honeywell Analytics gas sensor technologies, which reduces training time and spare parts stock. It is available with a local IS HART terminal port for one-man operation. Local LEDs provide status information and enable easy maintenance and monitoring.
The XNX is compatible with any Honeywell Analytics gas sensor technology. The transmitter’s XNX interface can be customized to meet the specific needs of each application. One transmitter can be used for electrocatalytic LEL, another for open-path IR, and another for hydrocarbon detection. A common transmitter platform enables flexibility and customization.
It supports Modbus, Fieldbus and a local Hart Adapter
The XNX Universal Transmitter can accept input from many Honeywell Analytics sensors, except for the Sensepoint High Temp and 705 HT Sensor. Other features include a Modbus output, 4 M25 entries and HART over four-20 mA. This versatile transmitter can also connect to other gas transmitters. Honeywell is a $38 billion global, diversified technology and manufacturing leader serving customers around the world.
XNX supports Modbus, Fieldbus and a locally-programmable Hart Adapter. It supports Modbus, Fieldbus, and a local Hart Adapter, and it installs seamlessly to your digital communications network. Its HART communication foundation ensures compliant operation. The XNX Universal Transmitter supports Modbus, Fieldbus, and a local Hart Adapter, which are standard in many Honeywell gas detection systems.
It supports Modbus
If you’re looking for a high-performance, universal platform that works with Honeywell Analytics gas detectors and other gas monitoring controllers, XNX may be a great choice. XNX supports HART and 4-20 mA wiring, which is widely used in the gas monitoring industry. Plus, it can be used with existing gas transmitters. Honeywell Analytics is a $38 billion global manufacturing and technology company serving customers in a variety of industries.
HART(r) provides three kinds of commands: Universal, Common Practice, and Device Specific. Device Specific allows a PLC to communicate with a particular device using the Device Description (DD) file produced by the manufacturer. The XNX universal transmitter, manufactured by Honeywell Analytics, uses a DD file to interact with a HART-enabled device. This protocol enables the transmitter to poll data from XNX and perform procedures.
It supports HART EDDL
EDDL software from Honeywell Analytics enables users to manage advanced diagnostics and gas detection data from a PLC. XNX supports both HART and EDDL communication protocols and is compatible with Modbus and Foundation Fieldbus. Using the software, you can manage your HART devices from your PLC and provide quick, accurate feedback. Honeywell Analytics’ EDDL/DTM software provides a clear visual representation of gas detector health.
Honeywell Analytics XNX transmitters are flexible and easy to install. They support a wide range of sensors and provide a variety of industry-standard output signals. This means you can use one interface for multiple applications, which is helpful in the field. The transmitter is also compatible with a number of third-party gas detection controllers and sensors. The user-friendly Honeywell Analytics XNX transmitter is easy to configure for different gas detection applications.
