Uniformance – Software for Process History and Analytics

Uniformance Asset Sentinel

Honeywell’s Uniformance® Asset Sentinel continuously monitors equipment and process health, enabling industrial facilities to predict and prevent asset failures and poor operational performance. Part of the Uniformance software suite, it works across industries on a varied set of monitoring applications and across a broad set of asset types.

Uniformance Asset Sentinel brings together the real-time monitoring capabilities of Honeywell’s Asset Manager with powerful historical analytics of Matrikon’s Equipment Condition Monitoring. This combination results in a unified calculation and event detection platform that is applicable to a broad set of industries and applications.

Uniformance Asset Sentinel comprises two modules:

  • Process & Equipment Monitoring: It monitors process performance and equipment health to minimize unplanned losses and maximize uptime.
  • Smart Instrument Monitoring: It continuously assesses the health and performance of smart instruments, helping users minimize unplanned downtime and maximize investments in smart instrumentation.

While designed to seamlessly integrate with Honeywell control systems and other advanced application software, Uniformance Asset Sentinel is control system- and historian- independent. Features include:

  • Plant Reference Model: Uniformance Asset Sentinel provides a multi-level equipment hierarchy to model users’ plant and equipment structure.
  • Data Access: Uniformance Asset Sentinel supports a variety of data interfaces required for a complete view of asset health or performance.
  • Powerful Calculation Engine: Uniformance Asset Sentinel supports an easy-to-use, fourth-generation scripting language to perform simple-to-complex statistical calculations and data manipulation.
  • Event Detection & Notification: For situations requiring the earliest possible attention and follow-up, Uniformance Asset Sentinel’s event detection environment makes it possible to identify user-defined rules and checks to trigger alerts and warnings.

Continuous surveillance of key operating and equipment conditions with Uniformance Asset Sentinel allows the earliest possible indication of performance degradation and the appropriate prioritization to address the situation. With this software family, users can:

  • Increase asset utilization up to 10%
  • Reduce maintenance costs up to 10%
  • Increase operating efficiency up to 10%
  • Improve safety.
