New Honeywell Engineering Software Offers 30 Improved Features

MINNEAPOLIS - Honeywell (NYSE: HON)  introduced an updated version of CARE with SymmetrE, a proven engineering tool with more than 20,000 systems in the field worldwide. CARE 5.0 simplifies the process of engineering a project by building on Honeywell's existing flat Lon architecture while adding timesaving engineering and commissioning enhancements. SymmetrE R300 is an advanced building management system that gives engineers complete control over heating, ventilation and air conditioning monitoring.

In response to customer feedback and research, CARE now enables engineers to generate complete HVAC plant solutions, manage large, complex systems and create control sequences for the most demanding systems. Users can also configure and commission LonMark-based controllers and open-system devices throughout an entire network.

CARE simplifies the time-consuming tasks of engineering, documenting and commissioning a new Direct Digital Controls (DDC) system, leaving more time to sell new projects. Now, engineers can directly synchronize to the LNS database, including changes to controllers, as well as adding and removing controllers. The Export, Transfer, Import, Launch, Setup and Set online functions are all executed automatically.

The improved SymmetrE includes view-per-point mapping with BACnet server enhancement. Engineers can create customizable alarm and event user interfaces and save time by printing directly from these interfaces. Through pop-up faceplates, they can also view critical information about specific points to which objects are linked.

Honeywell Helps Mott Community College Reduce Energy Costs Despite Rising Prices

MINNEAPOLIS – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Building Solutions announced  that it will provide $6.8 million in upgrades and services to Mott Community College in Flint, Mich. The performance contract includes mechanical maintenance services, lighting and plumbing retrofits, and new boilers and rooftop HVAC units. These and other energy-saving upgrades will help the college improve campus comfort and efficiency while balancing rising energy costs with reduced budgets.

As a result of the upgrades, the school will save $450,000 annually for the next 15 years. And the improvements and savings come at no additional operating cost to the college. That’s because Honeywell Energy Performance Contracts allow organizations like Mott Community College to fund the cost of improvement programs with the subsequent reduction in their energy budget. Plus, Honeywell guarantees the savings under the performance contract.

The 18-month construction phase of the project began in June, and Honeywell has started to retrofit lighting and plumbing fixtures at the college’s two Flint-area campuses. Included in this phase is the installation of low-voltage occupancy sensors in classrooms. With these sensors, lights will automatically dim or turn off when a room has been unoccupied for a set period of time. In addition, Honeywell is putting in low-flow plumbing fixtures that will reduce water consumption at the college without affecting performance.
