In today’s increasingly connected industrial world, access to critical plant data is crucial.

Honeywell Pulse is an industrial mobile app that plays an essential role within a company’s Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) network by improving situational awareness and event insight, and increasing collaboration. This new tool delivers real-time plant performance notifications and alerts directly to plant managers, supervisors and engineering staff, enabling users to remotely monitor, discuss and resolve issues directly on their mobile devices. This remote access to important plant data can help improve the overall efficiency and safety of an enterprise.

Honeywell Pulse is Honeywell Process Solutions’ first app built specifically for mobile devices, connecting to different data sources and applications across a company’s portfolio to create a more insightful and intuitive mobile experience for plant workers. Users simply specify the process criteria that warrant an alert and the app provides all relevant information in a timely manner, giving users the tools to take various corrective actions to address the situation.

Today, Honeywell Pulse publishes valuable performance alerts from Honeywell’s DynAMo Alarm Management solution software and all OPC-compliant Process Historians, including Honeywell’s Uniformance Process History Database (PHD).

Additionally, Honeywell Pulse includes connectivity tools to drive collaboration across the enterprise. The app enables users to weigh in on and resolve ongoing issues through the use of threaded conversations. Users can define their own alert conditions by subscribing or unsubscribing to them with ease, and can take ownership of an event with one click. By participating in the issue identification and resolution process through receiving and sharing critical alerts, seamless collaboration amongst remote staff is made possible by the Honeywell Pulse mobile app.
