Pepperl+Fuchs and Honeywell were jointly honored as "IGEL Ready Partner of the Year" in the "Global Synergy" category at the DISRUPT 23 end-user computing event in Munich, Germany. The award is given to IGEL partners who are particularly committed to customer success, actively participate in the IGEL Ready program, and can demonstrate global success as a result. The award decision also takes into account the extent to which partner companies can add value to customers and partners and improve the customer experience by combining their solutions with IGEL. According to the jury, Pepperl+Fuchs and Honeywell fully met these criteria: They received the IGEL Ready Award for their cooperation with IGEL on their joint solution offering for industrial box thin clients (BTCs). "We are very pleased to accept this award together with our long-standing partner Honeywell," said Dr. Marc Seißler, Head of Product Management HMI at Pepperl+Fuchs, at the event in Munich.
The industrial box thin clients from Pepperl+Fuchs are compact thin clients in a particularly robust aluminum housing that allows their use even in harsh industrial environments. Their design and the use of the latest technologies enable the BTC14 and BTC12 to permanently withstand high temperatures, shocks and vibrations, and to cope with even the most demanding process applications. Numerous mounting options provide high installation flexibility.
In order to simplify the use of the BTCs for users of the Honeywell Experion PKS process control system and to offer the greatest possible user-friendliness, Pepperl+Fuchs and Honeywell are working closely together. The BTCs are qualified for Honeywell Experion PKS, pre-installed with the Honeywell-specific IGEL OS operating system and available as an exclusive Honeywell product. With this combination of hardware and software, as well as active participation in the IGEL Ready program, the long-time partners are giving their joint customers access to state-of-the-art solutions and technologies for virtualization in process automation.
“Congratulations to Honeywell and Pepperl+Fuchs on their success as valued members of the IGEL Ready ecosystem,” said Divya Saggar, Director, IGEL Ready. “We are grateful for your commitment to IGEL Ready, and proud to be working with you to fulfill our mission of making it easier for our mutual customers to deploy, secure, and manage their modern workplace environments.”
