Element14 said it is offering Limitless wireless switches from Honeywell. When combined with wireless technology, the Micro Switch Heavy Duty limit switches can be used in sensing procedures in applications requiring position sensing and presence/absence detection. The company says improved flexibility from Honeywell's wireless systems enhances safety and productivity, as well as lowers maintenance costs.

"The adoption of wireless enabled products has become widespread in Asia very quickly due to its operational efficiencies, such as quick installation and maintenance, convenience and cost savings. We are pleased to partner with element14 to offer the Limitless series across its element14 sites, which provide all the technical resources that make it easier for our customers in Asia-Pacific to find the products they need fast," said Randy Choo, Sales Director – Southeast Asia & Pacific, Honeywell Asia-Pacific.

The flexibility of the battery-operated wireless switches, combined with harsh-duty packaging for improved durability, contribute to increasing efficiencies, and reduce installation and maintenance costs compared to a wired switch. In remote monitoring applications where wiring or wire maintenance is not possible, the switches provide improved reliability and security for machines, equipment, OEMs, and operators.

This series has up to 305m (1000 feet) line-of-sight range when used with the Limitless wireless receiver, and is able to network multiple switches, up to 16, providing even more flexibility and distance. It uses global licence-free 802.15.4 RF bands.

"Honeywell products are popular among design and maintenance engineers due to its versatility, durability, and reliability, and are used for a wide variety of applications including material handling, construction, transportation, and speciality machinery. We are delighted to offer a comprehensive Honeywell range so our customers can easily review and order from one site for fast dispatch from existing stock," said Marc Grange, Head of Product Marketing, Element14 Asia-Pacific.
