Real-time industrial worker personal gas safety monitoring
Honeywell Connected Plant Skills Insight Personal Gas Safety is announced for
real-time plant and remote operation worker safety monitoring.
Wearable detectors monitor gas, radiation, and dust. They are tightly integrated
with Experion Process Knowledge distributed control system. In case of harmful
exposures, man-down, or panic alarms — accurate, automated alarms alert control
room operators in real time. Safety teams can also take advantage of powerful Experion
PKS-embedded tools to provide detailed gas detectors trending, reporting, and data
Personal Gas Safety provides critical alarm reporting, sensor and calibration status,
plus worker identification and location data from the wearable gas detectors.
