Companies can monitor Honeywell gas detection systems remotely and gain awarenes of field incidents relating to worker safety.
The Honeywell Sotera safety software has been added to the list of the company’s connected industrial worker systems, which are designed to help customers keep their facilities and personnel safe, boost productivity, and lower compliance and administrative costs.
“Honeywell is developing and deploying connected worker technology that allows customers to make workplaces safer and operations more efficient while helping companies avoid costly down-time and administrative burden,” said Ken Schmidt, general manager of portable gas detection products for Honeywell Industrial Safety. “Using the Honeywell Sotera platform, our connected software can help customers monitor the safety of their workers no matter where they are and help optimise their plant and field operations.”
The Honeywell Sotera platform will support connected worker products such as two-way communications, geo-location and automatic safety alerts to provide employers with real-time awareness of safety incidents and the ability to respond quickly if an employee is injured in a remote location.
The first rollout of the software, Honeywell Sotera-Express, will replace legacy software applications for Honeywell’s wearable gas detector portfolio with a new, user-friendly software interface. The software will make it easier for customers using different Honeywell devices to test, maintain and generate reports.
Honeywell Sotera-Express will serve as the sole device management software for all Honeywell gas detection products, starting with its popular portable gas detector products: BW Clip, GasAlertMicroClip and Honeywell RAE Systems’ ToxiRAE Pro, MultiRAE, Q RAE3 and MicroRAE gas monitors, as well as the BW IntelliDoX and RAE Systems’ AutoRAE 2 docking systems used to charge, test and maintain the devices.
The software simplifies device configuration, testing and maintenance across all Honeywell brands, and greatly streamlines compliance administration for safety managers by generating testing, certification, incident and other key reports faster. It also incorporates advanced cyber security features to protect data.
