HOUSTON, TX ̶ Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has established a new business unit to help manufacturers harness the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and more rapidly deploy technologies that will allow them to better manage and analyze data, making their operations safer, more reliable and more efficient.
OPC UA is Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture, a machine-to-machine communication protocol.
Among Honeywell’s leading technologies that help operators prioritize and manage a growing amount of operational data are DynAMo® alarm and operations management; Industrial Cyber Security Risk Manager, which proactively monitors and manages cyber risk for industrial environments; Assurance 360, a multi-year cooperative service arrangement to maintain, support and optimize the performance of Honeywell control systems; and most recently, Honeywell Pulse™, a mobility app that allows plant managers to easily monitor real-time operations from a smartphone.
HPS’s IIoT solutions utilize Honeywell’s patented software infrastructure that gives customers a secure and simple method to capture their big industrial data in a secure portal that can be scaled to meet the varied needs of single-site or enterprise-wide operations. Honeywell’s innovative solutions help manufacturing plants eliminate unplanned shutdowns, maximize output, minimize safety risk and optimize supply chain strategies.
For the refining and petrochemical industries, Honeywell Process Solutions will leverage the expertise of Honeywell UOP, the recognized world leader in inventing and licensing a wide range of technologies used globally to turn oil and natural gas into transportation fuels and petrochemicals.
