Industrial temperature transmitters lower plant lifecycle costs
Honeywell Process Solutions' range of SmartLine industrial temperature transmitters are designed to lower plant lifecycle costs while ensure plant reliability and safety in harsh process environments. Video: Don Maness and Asheesh Arora discuss concepts of the transmitter platform.
Honeywell Process Solutions' range of SmartLine industrial temperature transmitters, which improve overall plant and employee efficiency even in harsh and noisy process environments. SmartLine temperature transmitters are designed to lower plant lifecycle costs by making it easier to maintain field devices with features like an advanced graphic display capable of showing process data in graphical formats and communicating messages from the control room.
In addition, the SmartLine temperature transmitters utilize modular components intended to simplify field repairs and reduce the parts inventory required to make those repairs.
SmartLine includes several features to help ensure plant reliability and safety like dual-compartment housing. It also features intuitive diagnostics for both the transmitter and sensor that is also available on the transmitter display providing a real-time view of the sensor health to support proactive maintenance.
To reduce lifecycle costs, the transmitter features a built-in dual-input and digital output option to minimize the number of instruments needed for both monitoring and switching needs.
The company announced the new product during the Honeywell Users Group meeting, June 3.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
