Honeywell has entered into a partnership with Analog Devices to digitize commercial buildings’ management systems, supporting the expansion of digital connectivity technologies to reduce waste, cost and downtime.
The announcement was made at CES last week, alongside the company’s news that it had collaborated with NXP Semiconductors to develop smart energy technology for commercial buildings.
Under the partnership with Analog Devices Inc (ADI), Honeywell is hoping to bring connectivity technology to building management systems “for the first time” and without needing to replace existing infrastructure.
The partners say the project meets a rising problem of outdated and inefficient commercial buildings, with the U.S. Energy Information Administration finding the majority of these buildings in the U.S. were built before 2000.
There has also been a surge in demand for more secure network services, as businesses deal with greater amounts of data than ever before.
By digitizing building management systems, Honeywell said the project will help alleviate some of this pressure, securing a building’s network performance and security without requiring extensive costs and remodeling.
Under the partnership, Honeywell said it will integrate ADI's single-pair Ethernet and software configurable input/output solutions in its building management systems, which enables long-reach Ethernet connectivity with a building's existing wiring, reducing installation time, cost, and waste.
"For more than a decade, ADI and Honeywell have collaborated on driving the next waves of innovation," said Martin Cotter, ADI’s senior vice president. "In this next phase of our work together, we are thrilled to see these ADI technologies move beyond factory automation and into Honeywell's building management system to help customers reduce building energy consumption, which can save money, improve resiliency and help meet emissions reduction goals."
"Honeywell is revolutionizing building management systems to help building owners tackle today's biggest challenges," said Suresh Venkatarayalu, Honeywell's chief technology officer. "This collaboration with ADI would offer building owners the ability to upgrade and enhance their wiring without a significant upfront investment, and with less labor and environmental impact."
