Frost & Sullivan Acclaims RAE Systems for Enhancing Safety and Productivity in the Gas Detection Market with its ConneXt Wireless Solution
With the robust ConneXt Safety Solutions, RAE Systems has endowed Honeywell with a strong footing in the global wireless gas detection market
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — June 5, 2015 — Based on its recent analysis of the wireless gas detection market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes RAE Systems by Honeywell with the 2014 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Company of the Year. Honeywell Analytics’ acquisition of the pioneering solution provider, RAE Systems, firmly established it as the market leader in the gas detection space. RAE Systems’ highly scalable, flexible, and reliable ConneXt Safety Solutions has helped expand Honeywell’s global footprint as well as address all prevailing key industry challenges.
“Honeywell has leveraged RAE Systems’ leading position in the wireless gas detection space to gain market share in the global wireless fixed and transportable areas, and it is the dominant market participant in the portable segment,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst V Sankaranaraynan. “This buyout also gave Honeywell access to RAE Systems’ ConneXt Safety Solutions, its robust product line of personal, hand-held, transportable, and fixed-gas, radiation, and photo-ionization detection devices.”
ConneXt is the most intelligent set of wireless gas detection solutions in the market, with three variants: ConneXt Pack, ConneXt Plus, and ConneXt Pro. The ConneXt Pack is a custom wireless kit that conjointly provides real-time connectivity and ease of use, while ConneXt Plus is a configurable system that is extremely versatile and can be customized to end-user needs. ConneXt Pro is the first all-inclusive, enterprise-wide solution that has specialized features and options for better service delivery.
ConneXt Safety Solutions’ proactive safety attributes have ensured plant-wide safety and protection, while verifiable work rules help diminish enterprise liability by providing real-time data 24/7. This product benefit also improves plants’ operational efficiency by replacing labor-intensive and low-performing solutions.
The ConneXt Safety Solution offers key benefits, such as:
- Providing real-time data;
- Enabling easy installation and reconfiguration;
- Aiding rapid return on investment;
- Ensuring proper optimization of a plant facility; and
- Maintaining operational mobility and flexibility for enhancing RAE Systems’ value proposition.
The ConneXt Safety Solutions have diverse applications; the ConneXt Pack is especially useful for turnkey monitoring of workers’ health status in a confined atmosphere, without the need for software. The ConneXt Plus is valuable in detecting leaks and emergency situations in a refinery turnaround project or a hazardous incident. Finally, the ConneXt Pro is ideal for fence line monitoring, asset protection, and chronic health issue tracking in a large area or entire facility.
“In line with addressing industry challenges, the ConneXt Safety Solutions have helped reduce human errors, facilitated seamless and simple calibration, and minimized the environmental footprint, leading to safer and more reliable workplaces and communities,” noted Sankaranaraynan.
Wireless gas sensor solutions like RAE Systems’ ConneXt are an integral part of the predictive maintenance kits to ensure both short- and long-term safety and drastically lower plant downtime. For its role in aiding uninterrupted production and delivering outstanding customer satisfaction, RAE Systems by Honeywell is recognized with Frost & Sullivan’s 2014 Company of the Year Award in the Global Wireless Gas Detection Market.
“It is an honor to be recognized by a global, independent market research firm and growth partner like F&S for solution leadership in the wireless gas detection category. ConneXt is the result of several years of R&D, customer engagement, and offers the first step toward our vision of a connected industrial enterprise and Industrial Internet of Things,” said Prabhu Soundarrajan, who leads strategic partnerships and business development at RAE Systems by Honeywell. “ConneXt innovative solution platform will evolve with the needs of our global customer base in the connected industrial world.
