Honeywell announces new Experion distributed control system
Honeywell has announced its newest version of Experion LX, a distributed control system (DCS) designed specifically for small- and mid-sized companies.
Built on the Experion process knowledge system (PKS), Experion LX includes a number of capabilities to support midsized chemical processing, industrial power, biofuels, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and water and wastewater facilities.
‘Increasing manufacturing agility, meeting strict regulatory standards, controlling energy usage, and reducing maintenance costs are pressing challenges faced by our small- and mid-sized customers,’ says Shen Tao, Experion LX senior product manager at Honeywell.
‘A powerful, compact DCS like Experion LX provides those customers with a cost-effective solution to efficiently solve the challenges of smaller plants and operations.’
An S88 compliant batch system runs entirely on Experion LX’s C300 controller providing faster and more reliable batch operations compared to server-based systems.
Class-based recipes enable reuse of recipes and helps reduce the cost of recipe engineering, maintenance, and testing.
The Experion LX provides a set of SCADA capabilities, including new equipment based configuration which reduces engineering effort.
A HMIWeb solution pack provides a ready-to-use library of standardised objects to build ASM compliant displays, enabling quick projects implementation and effective plant operation.
The CAB developer and application development toolkit allows algorithm and application development tailored for specific requirements, reducing engineering, and maintenance costs.
The Experion LX is available in North America, Latin America, Europe and South East Asia, and is sold and delivered exclusively through Honeywell channel partners and system integrators.
