Honeywell showcases Internet of Things at HUG EMEA

Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has showcased its latest process automation solutions including the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT by Honeywell) and industrial cyber security at the 27th annual Honeywell Users Group (HUG) for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). 

The conference, which ran from November 16 to19 in Madrid, was attended by more than 1,000 Honeywell technology users from across the oil and gas, chemical, pulp and paper, and metals and mining sectors. The conference featured technology displays and dozens of Honeywell- and customer-led sessions and technical discussions.

Key solutions unveiled at HUG EMEA this year included:

•    Process Solution Suites for UOP Technologies combines Honeywell UOP and Honeywell process automation to provide pre-engineered solutions with embedded Honeywell UOP knowledge. Benefits include early validation of automation designs, reduced project risk and reduced automation punch-list items on site – which ultimately enables earlier start-up of operations.

•    MatrikonOPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) is a response to growing demand for products that easily interconnect and share data in meaningful and effective ways, accelerating the Internet of Things. MatrikonOPC UA extends the highly successful OPC communication protocol, enabling data acquisition and information modeling and communication between the plant floor and the enterprise reliably and securely.

•    Honeywell Pulse is a new mobile app used to remotely connect plant managers, supervisors and engineering staff to customised real-time plant performance notifications sent from HPS’ industrial automation software. It enables users to stay connected to their enterprise – wherever they are – by bringing relevant metrics and the tools to resolve issues directly to their mobile device.

•    The DynAMo Alarm & Operations Management software family delivers advanced capabilities for alarm system compliance, monitoring and rationalisation. It brings automated enforcement of alarm policies, measurement and reporting of alarm system performance, notification and alerting of operational problems, and best practice workflows for the communication and visualisation of operational objectives – all in a single unified platform.

•    The expanded Uniformance Suite software provides real-time digital intelligence through advanced process and event data collection, asset-centric analytics and powerful visualisation technology, turning plant data into actionable information to enable smart operations. This solution is a backbone for the IIoT and puts “data” in Big Data. New this year is Uniformance Insight R100, a thin-client solution that offers data integration and performance monitoring for improved data visualisation.

•    The new RTU2020 process controller gives users 20/20 vision to realise the best utilisation of their distributed assets through efficient remote monitoring, diagnostic and asset management capabilities. It includes a redundant controller and native wireless input/output integration. Also featured are expansion I/O modules and electronic flow metering.

•    SmartLine Multivariable (SMV800) Transmitter is the latest in Honeywell’s SmartLine family of pressure transmitters, combining the ability to measure static pressure, differential pressure and process temperature all in one device. Honeywell`s SmartLine portfolio of Level, Pressure and Temperature transmitters is the most modern line of field instruments in the process automation industry offering superior performance, lowest life cycle cost and seamless integration with Honeywell Experion PKS.

•    The UniSim Blowdown Design Utility, designed for oil and gas, petrochemical and chemical industry applications, assists in designing systems to allow for safe depressurisation of process equipment. It also helps companies manage capital costs by more accurately selecting the right construction materials and blowdown system sizes for a particular site.
