Poole, United Kingdom, 17 March 2015 – Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced the launch of Touchpoint Pro – a complete integrated gas and logic safety control system that delivers unrivalled flexibility and connectivity creating an industrial safety culture that is second to none.
Representing the next evolution in industrial safety, Touchpoint Pro provides a platform that can adapt to any site requirement offering total flexibility, intuitive use and the ability to dramatically reduce ongoing costs.
Touchpoint Pro is an ideal solution for small to midsized operations. Touchpoint Pro’s flexible architecture enables the exact system to be built to customer requirements — optimising operations and cost. Thanks to a unique modular approach, Touchpoint Pro is the only control solution that enables the customer to build a centralised system, distributed system or a combination — all with the same components. The unique architecture of Touchpoint Pro can significantly reduce cabling costs and installation time and is easily expanded or integrated into an emergency gas shutdown system.
“Touchpoint Pro can save customers as much as 50%* on the total cost per channel when you factor in all of its cost-saving aspects, including equipment, installation and cabling,” said Andrew Thompson, Vice President and General Manager for Honeywell Analytics EMEA. “This makes it a highly attractive solution for today’s cost-conscious customer.”
Touchpoint Pro delivers maximised system uptime with 24/7 operational availability. It is the only control system in its class to offer a Web server interface, which allows gas status, data, event history and more to be monitored away from the intuitive touch-screen panel — and even remotely from the site. Low cost, end to end testing of the entire system can be carried out by a one man walk test using a mobile device.
At the heart of Touchpoint Pro is the central controller that can be mounted in either a rack or cabinets. It features an intuitive touch-screen interface for easy system setup and complete, at-a-glance visibility of system status. The central controller also includes a preloaded sensor catalogue, which contains a complete listing of gas detectors from Honeywell, each with recommended settings for a simple three stage setup.
Bespoke systems including up to 64 inputs in total from toxic and flammable gas detectors as well as flame detectors and manual call points; digital and relay outputs can be created using Touchpoint Pro’s unique plug in input/output modules.
Maintenance is made hassle free through Touchpoint Pro’s easy plug in input/output modules and din power and communications rail. System upgrade and service is accomplished without the need to power the system down as new modules are simply plugged in maintaining system uptime. Touchpoint Pro’s self healing network ensures a faulty module will not stop the system monitoring a site, securing safety and compliance.
