Honeywell is excited to announce the launch of two new lines of pressure sensors (P7650 and P7635) and a new line of current sensors and switches! The pressure sensors offer enhanced features and directly replace their P7640 pressure sensor. These easy to install current sensors will replace Honeywell’s existing line of current sensors.

As Honeywell adds new and improved controllers to their product portfolio, they need to let older products go. So heads up: the W7752G 2000 Lonmark Fan Coil unit is being discontinued. If you need some of these reach out to your local Honeywell authorized distributor to buy any inventory they might have. A better option would be to have your local Honeywell distributor recommed a good replacement controller. Although, I found many of these on eBay, I would steer clear of that option ( no warranty, no tech support, and you have no idea were the controller has been). As my dad use to say, “trouble cost more than quality”.

You already have a smart home, and now, you can have a smart home away from home. Thanks to the launch of Honeywell’s next-generation thermostat for the hospitality industry, you’ll now be able to control the temperature not only of your bedroom, but of your hotel room, too.
Meet the new Inncom e7 Thermostat (otherwise known as the e7), heralded as the first enterprise-grade environmental control and energy management solution that also features Amazon Alexa integrations. (Available in White or Black Onyx)
Not only does the e7 help you control your room’s temperature, but it also promises a holistic approach to comfort in your suite. That means that by simply talking to this smart thermostat, you can also control the lighting, drapery, and amenities services available to you. The e7 relies upon patent-pending Smart Wall Plate design that Honeywell says “provides hotel staff with an easy and reliable back-up of the device configuration.” This, the company says, is key to making routine maintenance of the system as simple as possible.
And while usability from the hotel’s standpoint is obviously important, guest satisfaction ultimately remains at the top of the priorities list. And here, the e7 claims to truly shine. The system claims to be able to detect a guest’s proximity, and then display the necessary information for interaction. The straightforward user interface purports to provide easy-to-use controls, and because the e7 can be integrated with technologies from other companies, it can also be expanded to a wide range of other in-room user interfaces. Ultimately, you might be able to control your TV from your thermostat — what a world!
Honeywell announced that it will appoint former long-time company executive Roger Fradin as the Chairman of the Board for the Homes and Global Distribution business spinoff announced last year. Fradin will start immediately to help Homes transition into a separate, stand-alone business.
“In Roger Fradin, we are appointing a terrific leader to act as Chairman of our Homes and Global Distribution business once it separates from Honeywell,” said Honeywell president and CEO Darius Adamczyk. “Over many decades in the industry, Roger has forged an unparalleled track record of performance through his ability to connect with customers, anticipate their needs and drive the rapid introduction of highly desirable products. Roger’s experience, passion, technical knowledge, unwavering focus on serving customers, and ability to attract and motivate a highly talented workforce will ensure the Homes spinoff thrives as an independent company.”
“I am excited to partner with Honeywell once again, and even more excited to help build a fantastic public company that will encompass this well-established and successful product portfolio,” Fradin said. “Honeywell’s Homes and Global Distribution business is uniquely positioned to leverage its wide portfolio of Connected products and highly advanced software capabilities to generate tremendous innovation within the markets it serves. I have no doubt the new company will be at the forefront as a leading choice for consumers, a great place to work for employees, and an excellent investment for future shareowners.”
In October 2017, Honeywell announced its intent to spin off the Homes product portfolio and ADI global distribution business, as well as the Transportation Systems business, into two stand-alone, publicly-traded companies. The spins are expected to be completed by the end of 2018. The new Homes and Global Distribution business will be in the home heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) controls and security markets, and a global distributor of security, fire, and other low voltage products. Based on Honeywell’s current view of the contours of the Homes and Global Distribution business and subject to finalization of the carve-out audit, the 2017 sales of the projected spin business were approximately $4.5 billion. The spin business is expected to have a high-yield credit rating and approximately 13,000 employees.
After a 17-year career with Honeywell, Fradin retired in February 2017 as vice chairman responsible for advancing the company’s merger and acquisition strategy. Before that, Fradin served as president and CEO of Honeywell’s former Automation and Controls Solutions (ACS) business group, a global leader in the development and manufacture of environmental controls, life safety products, and building and process solutions used in homes, buildings, industrial facilities, and public and private utilities around the world. Under Fradin’s leadership, ACS grew over a 10-year period by roughly 110 percent from an $8 billion, mainly U.S. domestic business, to a $17 billion global business. In addition, Fradin oversaw the completion and successful integration of 57 acquisitions worth approximately $7.2 billion. Fradin was the original founder of the Global Distribution business and ran the Security and Distribution business from 1976 until its acquisition by Honeywell in 2000.
This is the first Board appointment for the intended spinoff. A search is underway for a CEO, which will be a separate position, and that appointment will be announced at a later date.
A message from Darius Adamczyk, Honeywell President and CEO
Honeywell Announces Planned Portfolio Changes
|Today, we announced several important planned changes to our portfolio that will position the Company for sustainable organic sales growth and margin expansion within a more focused set of end markets. You can read the details about these changes – including our intention to spin off our Homes product portfolio and ADI global distribution business as well as our Transportation Systems business into two stand-alone, publicly-traded companies – in this morning’s press release and in our presentation to investors.|
|These are big changes for the Company, and I want to emphasize that regardless of whether an employee will remain with Honeywell or join the new Homes or TS businesses, all employees will continue to be part of dynamic organizations whose top priority is to bring value to their customers by offering technology-differentiated solutions. There will be many new professional opportunities to grow and thrive. Above all, we will be in a terrific position to continue to perform for our customers, our shareowners, and for each other. Let’s remember the spins will likely not occur until late next year and, until then, both businesses will remain fully a part of Honeywell. We must stay focused at all times on doing a great job for our customers and executing on our business plans.|
|The changes announced today follow the completion of a comprehensive review of our portfolio. We evaluated each business unit using numerous criteria, including growth outlook, financial performance, market dynamics, potential for disruption, and, most importantly, assessment of fit as a Honeywell business. We considered which businesses would benefit most from continuing to be part of Honeywell, and which would benefit from independent strategic and capital allocation decision making tailored for their evolving end markets. The remaining Honeywell portfolio will consist of high-growth businesses that are aligned to six attractive industrial end markets, driven by mega trends such as energy efficiency, infrastructure investment, urbanization, and safety. This portfolio will present us with numerous opportunities to pursue organic and inorganic growth and margin expansion through further deployment of our world-class HOS Gold operating system and the Honeywell Sentience Platform.|
|I also want to take this opportunity to welcome Gary Michel to Honeywell in his new role as HBT President and CEO. Gary will report to me and serve as a Company officer. He brings 32 years of leadership experience from Ingersoll-Rand Company, where he demonstrated a deep understanding of his customers and end markets, and the ability to translate this knowledge into technology-differentiated offerings that bring value to customers. Gary succeeds Terrence Hahn, who will move into a leadership role in preparing the Homes Products and ADI businesses for the spin and will continue to report directly to me. I would like to thank Terrence for his leadership in establishing HBT and building on our strong positions in these markets.|
|Finally, I would like to acknowledge the Honeywell Process Solutions team within Performance Materials and Technologies (PMT) in advance for the work they will do to integrate the Smart Energy business into their portfolio. These businesses are a great fit with each other, and we anticipate that their combination will allow us to expand our industrial metering, control system,and software capabilities and serve a broader set of customers.|
|As a reminder, I will be hosting an all-employee global town meeting at 11 a.m. EDT on Friday, October 20. Please be sure to attend, as I will provide more details and insights into today’s announcements and answer any questions you may have.|
|Thank you for all your hard work and support.|
