New Connected Technology for More Safety, Productivity
May 17, 2017
A new software platform -- Honeywell Sotera' will support a variety of new connected solutions from Honeywell to give employers greater real-time awareness of employee safety incidents. It will also power applications that improve productivity, simplify compliance and enable companies with remote workers to respond faster when help is needed. An “ Express ” version of the software, available now, will replace legacy Honeywell gas detector applications with a single, user-focused software interface that simplifies the day-to-day tasks of testing, maintenance and report generation for users with “fleets” of portable detectors.
A gas detector that monitors for harmful gases is critical safety device for millions of commercial and light industrial operations, ranging from parking garages and hospitals to warehouses, condominiums and commercial kitchens. Honeywell's new Sensepoint XCL gas detector is a Bluetooth-enabled, fixed gas detector that makes installation and set-up easy and fast with a single worker. A downloadable smartphone app enables users to calibrate, test and maintain the devices, and produce reports necessary to meet safety and environmental regulations. The device was among four Honeywell products earlier this year to earn a 2017 iF Design Award for its innovation, usability and ergonomic design.
“These two new products are important milestones in our journey to more connected worker solutions,” said Prabhu Soundarrajan, connected worker leader for Safety and Productivity Solutions (SPS) gas detection business. “Honeywell Sotera will provide a common software foundation for all our connected safety solutions, starting with our industry leading portfolio of portable gas detectors, so customers can stay focused on keeping their workers safe. Sensepoint XCL brings gas detection into the digital age by enabling users to set up and maintain the device with a simple smartphone app.”
