Honeywell Launches OneWireless Rotating Equipment Monitoring Solution


Installing XYR6000 Multiplexer Wireless Vibration Monitor and Enhanced Asset Manager R400 Saves Companies on Average $20,000 Per Asset, Per Year

HOUSTON, June 13, 2011 - Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced the launch of its OneWireless(TM) Rotating Equipment Solution, a comprehensive suite of products and services that is part of Honeywell Process Solutions' (HPS) Reliability and Asset Management portfolio. The solution provides a cost effective means to monitor essential and critical plant assets wirelessly and in real time, saving customers an average of $20,000 per asset, per year through improved uptime and reduced maintenance and repair costs.

Industrial plants typically have thousands of rotating assets which, if not monitored frequently, can fail with little or no advanced warning due to the constant stresses placed on them. Honeywell's OneWireless(TM) Rotating Equipment Solution consists of the new Honeywell XYR6000 Multiplexer wireless vibration monitor; the enhanced Asset Manager R400 software for online performance and condition monitoring, and the OneWireless network Multinodes. This solution also includes wireless and reliability consulting, engineering and aftermarket services. Asset Manager R400 also enables users from all levels of plant operations to collaborate effectively in order to determine how to address abnormal equipment condition and plan maintenance while assuring production dependability.

"Our OneWireless Rotating Equipment Solution puts together the products and services that can really help companies that rely on rotating assets as an integral part of their day-to-day plant operations," said Raymond Rogowski, wireless business leader, Honeywell Process Solutions. "When asset failure is simply not an option, our XYR6000 Multiplexer and Asset Manager R400 can be used as part of a wider OneWireless plant network to make sure that early warning signs are not missed and appropriate action is taken."

Customers can also add other Honeywell solutions such as Honeywell Field Advisor, Turbo Suite, and Field Device Manager to extend these practices to a larger class of rotating assets, fixed assets and field instrumentation.

In addition, HPS's new XYR6000 Multiplexer is a compact but fully featured wireless vibration monitoring product for rotating assets. It helps customers improve uptime and reduce maintenance costs through Honeywell's proprietary fault model technology, which detects and tracks major failure modes such as bearing failures, machine imbalance, gearbox and impeller failures. Enhancements in the new XYR6000 Multiplexer include on-demand data and the ability to report equipment failure remotely, a four year battery life and Intrinsically Safe batteries for easy replacement in the field.
