Honeywell's distributors offer a full product line of CBMS equipment,

Honeywell factory-authorized and has in-depth knowledge of helicopter

How Condition-Based Maintenance Systems Benefits Helicopter Operators

Honeywell's ^ CBMS products, such as Zing® 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.
