2016 Recipients

Honeywell

SLATE Burner Control System

SLATE is a revolutionary new combustion system that combines configurable combustion safety with programmable logic in one single platform. SLATE can easily be customized for almost any requirement or application - offering virtually limitless development opportunities with a far less complexity.

SLATE streamlines and simplifies the product development process, allowing customers to bring unique solutions to market in a matter of weeks instead of months


United Electric Controls

One Series Safety Transmitter

The One Series Safety Transmitter is a hybrid control that is both a transmitter for continuous monitoring and a logic-solving safety trip alarm. This dual functionality is accomplished with an advanced microcontroller that generates a 4 to 20mA output along with two isolated programmable digital outputs that can be deployed for process safety control, alarm and interlock. A third digital output is dedicated to diagnostics. The United Electric Safety Transmitter (ST) is the first transmitter to incorporate a logic solver and high capacity safety relay output (SRO) in addition to an industry standard transmitter – all in one explosion-proof enclosure.
