MicroWatt has announced they are now an authorized Channel Partner for the Honeywell Industrial Fire Protection group in Canada. Honeywell Industrial Fire Protection is one of the world’s leading suppliers of industrial safety systems, including fire and gas detection, voice alarms, and public address systems.

At the heart of the Industrial Fire Protection group is the innovative HS81-HS fire controller platform, delivering a flexible industrial fire and gas safety system which harmonizes hazard monitoring, control and mitigation – while offering engineers and operators many unique cost-savings. This SIL2 or SIL3 rated platform completely harmonizes traditional flame, smoke and gas detection systems, fire alarm systems (addressable), and fire suppression into a single platform, and seamlessly interfaces with plant safety and control systems through multiple protocols. Some unique features include a “hot swap” capability for the replacement and auto-configuration of CPUs and power supplies, without performing a critical system shutdown. The system is configured as opposed to programmed which saves design and implementation time and money compared to traditional safety systems or generic PLC or DCS systems.

Gene Pecora, Business Leader Industrial Fire Protection at Honeywell Security and Fire, said, “I am thrilled to have MicroWatt represent Honeywell Industrial Fire. Their team of dedicated professionals have proven expertise and application knowledge which are essential for success and we consider them a key component to our growth plans. We look forward to providing superior quality, insightful products and complete system solutions that were previously unavailable to facilities across Canada.”

The Honeywell Industrial Fire Protection group also provides MicroWatt access to the Xtralis product line, a leading global provider of aspirating smoke and gas detection, advanced perimeter security technologies, and video analytics software. Xtralis systems perfectly complements the FAAST aspirating system, giving MicroWatt the ability to supply our customers with the world’s two leading aspirating systems.

The Honeywell Industrial Fire solutions are a perfect fit into MicroWatt’s growing portfolio of products and services. MicroWatt LifeSafety Solutions, based out of Calgary, with regional offices in Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Fort McMurray, and Vancouver has been strategically expanding its offerings to include complete Preventative and Mitigative System Safeguarding solutions. These include safety instrumentation, process, and burner controls, in addition to certified engineering, lifecycle, and field services in order to fully support our heavy industrial customers in Western Canada. They offer innovative products and services that reduce the total cost of ownership, improve safety, and optimize performance.
