Honeywell Experion MXQ6088 Compact Scanner

Honeywell has launched the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled Experion MX Q6088 Compact Scanner, designed for paper producers, flat sheet manufacturers and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) machine vendors.

The Experion MX Q6088 Compact Scanner supports a broad portfolio of high-performance sensors, including combined weight and moisture measurement with Honeywell’s MXIR infrared sensor technology. For many applications, this means eliminating the need for a nuclear source.

The Q6088 complements Honeywell’s quality control system for the paper industry (Experion MX), which has advanced multi-variable machine direction and cross direction controls for consistent quality and fast production transitions. It is suitable for most paper and flat sheet manufacturing processes, including tissue, board and coating lines.

The scanner leverages Honeywell’s QCS 4.0, which transforms data into actionable insights for improved process quality and production performance. The cloud-based solution continuously monitors scanner and sensor health, production quality and control/process performance, delivering a “call to action” to stakeholder mobile devices. QCS 4.0 securely connects critical production assets to Honeywell cloud analytics. Access anytime, anywhere from any device enables effective maintenance, performance management, and expert-guided production optimization regardless of the level of worker skills available at the site.
