Honeywell announced the DG Smart Sensor, a solution designed to enhance the efficiency and reliability of monitoring and controlling low-pressure combustion air and fuel gases. This product promises precise monitoring capabilities and embraces the digitalization trends aligned with Industry 4.0, providing an opportunity to improve combustion-system performance and transform the operational dynamics for OEMs, end users, and system integrators.
The DG Smart Sensor offers an array of advanced technical capabilities, per Honeywell. The pressure transmitter is equipped with 4-20mA NAMUR Analog output and MODBUS TCP digital communication and is up to SIL3 capable via Safety Communication protocol1. Designed to interoperate with future Burner Control Units (BCUs), the DG Smart Sensor showcases Honeywell's commitment to advancing Industry 4.0, they claim, adding that these features provide a balance of digital connectivity and precision at a competitive price, positioning the DG Smart Sensor as a valuable addition to combustion systems.
"In the era of digital transformation, accurate and reliable process data is paramount," said Ramine Eskandari, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Thermal Solutions. “The DG Smart Sensor represents a necessary advancement in combustion technology. Its ability to provide precise pressure readings and integrate digital communication capabilities enhances the efficacy of process heating technology. This product is a key part of the progressive evolution in combustion systems that the industry seeks.”
Honeywell’s DG Smart Sensor is available now in Europe with plans for a global rollout by the end of the year. For more information about the DG Smart Sensor visit DG Smart Sensor | Honeywell.
