Honeywell Introduces Thermal IQ Optimize

April 13, 2020
New Honeywell offering extends Thermal IQ platform capabilities by providing real-time data insights to better run thermal equipment across the enterprise.

Honeywell strengthens the capabilities of its Thermal IQ platform with the launch of Thermal IQ Optimize, an enterprise-level remote monitoring offering. The new offering provides users with real-time analytics and fault modeling with early event detection at plant, equipment and process level. 

Based on Honeywell Forge asset and process performance models, part of the Enterprise Performance Management offering for industrial companies, Thermal IQ Optimize extracts data from combustion equipment and thermal processes across the enterprise providing a clear, high-level view of thermal process performance through visual analytics. The asset performance management platform then allows users to drill down into the data of individual assets for an in-depth analysis, enabling them to identify anomalies in equipment function or processes, and determine their impact on enterprise efficiency.

Consisting of wireless connectivity, a mobile application and an enterprise-view dashboard, the Thermal IQ platform securely connects combustion equipment to the cloud, making critical thermal process data that is normally trapped at the equipment level available on any smart device or desktop. With Thermal IQ data, users can see what is happening with thermal processes without being at their facility, get real-time alerts when key parameters are outside normal limits, track historical data over time to identify when and why something happened and provide actionable recommendations.

Thermal IQ Optimize uses cybersecurity best practices and the latest security techniques to mitigate threats and ensure that communication channels are strictly controlled. Thermal IQ is suited for multi-site enterprises with limited or no tracking or remote access capabilities, and that consequently cannot optimize their thermal process systems’ performance.
