Honeywell Searchline Excel Plus Device Type Manager

Introduction

The purpose of this document is to support the plant operators with commissioning, operation, configuration and diagnosis of the Searchline Excel Plus & Edge detector. The Searchline Excel Plus & Edge is an OpenPath Flammable Hydrocarbon Gas Detector (OPFHGD) certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. The advanced optical element design provides additional resistance to certain adverse effects of the operating environment, ensuring that your plant is compliant, your personnel are protected and your production process can deliver maximum uptime. The Searchline Excel Plus & Edge device can be configured and operated by a Device Type Manager (DTM) that provides an easy-to-use user interface for accessing device variables, configuration parameters and diagnostic information. The Searchline Excel Plus & Edge DTM offers the combination of FDT and EDDL technologies and a uniform user interface according to the FDT style guide. It is a full-featured DTM device that carries the standard EDD-Interpreter components to execute the EDD during runtime. Because it is using existing device descriptions, plant operators will experience a familiar operating concept in the DTM.
