Honeywell Enhances Digital Video Technology
DVM, a component of Honeywells Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), is a digital video sensor and surveillance system that extends plant monitoring capabilities and integrates video stream and analytics with process control applications. This allows industrial facilities such as oil refineries, paper mills and power generation plants to observe hazardous or inaccessible areas from a distance and detect events beyond traditional sensor capabilities. Plants also can monitor workers and validate potential environmental and safety incidents. Additionally, DVM is a core piece of Honeywells overall industrial security portfolio that helps facilities detect and deter potential threats.
DVMs unique distributed video architecture simplifies operation by enabling multiple distributed servers to act as a single system without additional engineering requirements. It also reduces downtime caused by single points of failure, as well as reduces bandwidth and storage requirements. When combined with OneWireless, a single wireless network that accommodates multiple wireless devices and applications, DVM allows plants to cost-efficiently expand their video monitoring systems as needed.
Additionally, DVM improves operator effectiveness by allowing operators to easily toggle between process information and video streams, or to see video and process data combined into a single view. For example, if a video camera detects a potential pipeline leak, it can alert an operator to navigate from the Experion alarm summary to the relevant Experion display. The operator can then initiate a rapid and relevant response.
No one at a process manufacturing site wants to be blindsided by an avoidable or undetected incident that leads to unplanned downtime, or worse, a dangerous situation, so DVM serves as a critical tool for detection and response, said Scott Hillman, global solutions director, Honeywell Process Solutions. Since it easily integrates with process control applications, DVM can literally help deliver a more complete picture of operations across various sites.
More of our customers are showing increased interest in software that can integrate all process control, security and safety components, added Hillman. But those systems must also offer greater flexibility and easier integration. The enhancements weve made to DVM make this a reality.
