Honeywell Receives Over $70 Million In Orders For Process Safety Management Solutions

February 042004
SIL3-Rated Safety Technology, Proven Experience, and Integration with Experion PKS Motivate Customer Investments

LONDON, Feb. 4, 2004 - Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that it received over $70 million in orders related to its process safety management solutions in 2003. Demand continues to grow through purchases from a variety of customers worldwide, including oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation, chemical, and refining customers.

The dual benefits of Honeywell's safety management solutions are the integration with the latest release of Experion Process Knowledge System(tm) (PKS), while maintaining the security of an independent environment from the mainline control system. The result is a unified safety system solution, elevating safety and process availability - as well as production and profitability.

Customers cite Honeywell's almost 30 years of process safety management experience, industry-leading technology, and tight integration with Honeywell's Experion as primary reasons for choosing Honeywell.

Honeywell's latest safety management offering, Safety Manager PKS, increases safety and reliability, reduces process trips and reduces the cost and extent of safety incidents. Safety Manager PKS is the next evolution of Honeywell's highly successful Fail Safe Controller (FSC®) safety system - the global market leader in diagnostic-based safety management solutions for more than 15 years.

"Safety Manager PKS is based on Honeywell's field-proven Quadruple Modular Redundant (QMR), diagnostic-based technology with a 2oo4D architecture, which offers unlimited run time for single channel operation, thus increasing process availability, " said Asish Ghosh, Industry Analyst for the ARC Advisory Group. "It provides tight integration with Experion PKS to offer unified safety system architecture, allowing improvements in both safety and availability of a manufacturing process."

Safety Manager PKS provides the basis for integrating SIL (safety integrity level) rated sensors and valve actuators in the field ensuring that safety functions are well in place to protect complex and hazardous processes. It elevates safety practices such as process and emergency shutdowns, equipment protection, fire and gas monitoring and critical control.
