Honeywell announces OneWireless Video Solution
November 1, 2011 - Honeywell announced OneWireless Video Solution that allows plants to enhance their perimeter security and employee safety by deploying industrial video cameras over the OneWireless network.
The solution brings together Honeywell Process Solutions’ (HPS) expertise in process control, industrial security and wireless communications to provide a comprehensive system consisting of wireless services, closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, Digital Video Manager and the OneWireless Network —all integrated with Honeywell’s Experion process control system and Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) security management system and integration platform.
The OneWireless Video Solution takes advantage of wireless technology’s flexibility by enabling video coverage in difficult-to-cable, difficult-to-reach, or unmanned locations. Integration with Experion and EBI allows operators to view alarms and events remotely and respond to issues quickly and safely. The OneWireless Video Solution can be installed in facilities operating within all industries, especially hazardous areas in the chemicals, oil & gas, refining and mining industries.
The HPS portfolio provides a turn-key system that combines distributed control systems (DCS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) technology with CCTV surveillance systems and a wireless local area network. The system takes advantage of the increasingly popular IEEE 802.11-based wireless networks found in industrial plants and the improvement in video data compression that allows users to stream larger amounts of video data and install numerous CCTV cameras on a single wireless Ethernet network. The ability to segregate video and process/sensor data allows customers to install the sensors, I/O devices and cameras on a single wireless network leveraging the investment in the OneWireless network infrastructure.
“As plants and operators do their best to meet ever stricter and increasing numbers of security and safety regulations, wireless technology gives them a way to meet targets both quickly and cost-effectively,” said Ray Rogowski, global wireless marketing director. “In many brownfield scenarios, the OneWireless Video Solution is the only all-encompassing and viable security and safety solution available. Installing wireless technology can reward industrial sites with savings between 20 and 40 percent on acquisition and deployment costs.”
