Honeywell Outcome Based Service, a cloud-enabled building management service that helps identify misconfigurations sooner than traditional maintenance, now extends to mechanical systems. Outcome Based Service for Mechanical Systems uses advanced algorithms that monitor and analyze HVAC controllers, mechanical equipment and their key components, from boilers and chillers to other hardware that make up the core equipment of a building, in near real time, helping uncover many faults and anomalies faster than traditional, routine maintenance.
The new service module also taps sensor data to monitor the asset health of individual mechanical equipment, comparing actual equipment performance with optimal operational performance values to identify deviations. This helps alert personnel to many issues sooner than traditional maintenance so organizations may have the opportunity to make changes or fixes before they lead to costlier and more disruptive problems. The deviations also help inform condition-based dynamic tasking as to when and how to address mechanical system maintenance needs, such as when to replace air filters on HVAC equipment.
The asset health KPIs can also provide deeper insights into the duration or useful life of mechanical equipment. Because not all equipment degrades at the same rate, organizations can make better-informed financial and maintenance decisions about repairing or replacing equipment.
