Honeywell’s Safety Watch uses active wireless tags integrated into employee badges and Honeywell’s own multi-protocol infrastructure.

Honeywell on Friday introduced a real-time location solution (RTLS) concept that it said will help drive safety and security and boost workforce efficiency.

The Honeywell Safety Watch supports continuous operational improvement and gives organisations actionable information on their workers and assets to help meet the demands of modern industrial operations, the company said in a statement.

Leveraging Honeywell OneWireless infrastructure, the only solution of its kind to work with all major industrial wireless standards, Honeywell’s Safety Watch uses active wireless tags integrated into employee badges and Honeywell’s own multi-protocol infrastructure, the company said.

Honeywell said the safety watch is specifically designed for industrial operations, with enhanced features such as area classified equipment ready, a longer tag battery life, extended transmission range and higher location accuracy.

The watch supports other applications such as instrumentation, control and mobile devices. It also provides a business rule engine, enabling the creation of rules for safety and security.

“Our new Safety Watch RTLS helps organisations improve compliance, productivity, security and the safety, reducing the risk of incidents, and if one should occur, enabling a quick and effective response,” Nisha Lathif, safety solutions business director, Honeywell Process Solutions, said in a statement.

“Providing relevant information and real-time data processing, Safety Watch is purpose-built for industrial settings,” she said.

According to the company, real-time location data is an integral part of the Industry 4.0 ecosystem, which combines the latest technologies and digital capabilities to tap into data anywhere and everywhere. RTLS meets this need to help organisations achieve digital transformation through the industrial Internet of things, Honeywell said.
