The new network will provide enhanced worldwide coverage with the added benefits of onsite or local technical support; native language support for sales, field service and training; and troubleshooting of Honeywell’s CBMS solutions. New network offices are open in China and United Arab Emirates, with other local offices planned for the United Kingdom and Australia.

Honeywell’s distributors offer a full product line of CBMS equipment, including ZingÆ Health and Usage Monitoring (HUMS) onboard systems, Zing Test portable/carryon equipment and ZingÆ Ware software. Each distributor is Honeywell factory-authorized and has in-depth knowledge of helicopter operations as well as technical and customer service experience to help customers determine which Honeywell CBMS product offers the best value for an operator’s business needs.

Honeywell’s CBMS products, such as ZingÆ HUMS, provide helicopter operators with a range of diagnostic tools to help keep their aircraft at optimum operating condition. Zing HUMS is a scalable system of sensors that monitors vibration and captures specific health and usage data on critical components and suggests maintenance procedures before a mechanical failure. This helps increase safety and aircraft availability, reduces maintenance man-hours and parts costs, while ultimately increasing helicopter availability.
