Honeywell’s Universal I/O is the new normal
04 November 2014
Universal Channel Technology enables an entire cabinet to become a standard part, with I/O channels remotely configurable to allow modules to serve as analog or digital and as input or output. Even projects that aren’t leveraging all the benefits of LEAP implementation can reap significant efficiencies from Universal I/O. Eliminate tedious documentation updates, reduce spares needed, and simplify maintenance.
You have probably already heard about Honeywell’s new LEAP solution, which is setting a new standard for lean project execution. LEAP leverages several of Honeywell’s innovative technologies – Universal I/O, Experion Virtualization Solutions and our Virtual Engineering Platform (VEP). Together, these technologies enable projects to succeed exponentially; however, used individually, they still enable significant project benefits.
Standardized Universal Cabinets - Universal I/O enables the entire cabinet to become a standard part, with I/O channels quickly configurable to allow modules to serve as analog or digital and as input or output. Engineers can quickly accommodate configuration changes remotely using simple software. Universal Channel Technology eliminates tedious documentation updates for cabinet configurations, reduces the number of spares needed, and simplifies maintenance.
All users can benefit from Universal I/O - Even greenfield or expansion projects that aren’t leveraging all the benefits of a LEAP execution model can reap significant efficiencies from Universal I/O. You can drastically reduce the number of spares needed, AND allow future flexibility to land additional signals - analog or digital, input or output, local or remote. Honeywell offers Universal Channel Technology for Experion PKS, Safety Manager and for a Universal Barrier solution for intrinsically safe applications, so you are covered for all process control, safety and fire & gas needs. Universal I/O has become the “new normal.”
