Honeywell's Experion LS
Product Announcement from Honeywell Process Solutions
Based upon the award-winning Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), Experion LS brings the value and reliability enjoyed by global Honeywell customers to a smaller operation.
Experion LS offers the power and reliability of a distributed control system (DCS) in a small and flexible solution. Because it requires less engineering effort to configure and is easier to maintain than a PLC or large DCS, the system can help plants save up to $20,000 per year in support per system. With out-of-the-box functionality and flexibility, it requires less implementation cost and less ongoing maintenance than either systems are optimized for very large operations or the smaller typical PLC-based system.
Experion LS is the perfect flexible platform for small sites. Any size installation has access to a robust historian, controller-based batch sequencing, advanced control, change control for validated sites, and reporting capabilities.
The solution can scale from one PC and one controller to include multiple operator stations, redundancy, and batch management. In addition, the system provides reliable peer-to-peer communication with third party devices and drives, such as PLCs, weigh scales and motor drives, integration of SCADA data, and multiple I/O bus options.
Experion LS offers a single automation solution that covers both your continuous processing needs as well as batch control. With simple, yet powerful control algorithms neatly packaged into configurable function blocks and pre-built operator displays, monitoring and troubleshooting your process becomes easy for operators and maintenance personnel.
These features contribute to faster engineering, increased uptime and lower life cycle costs, while fully empowering your plant staff. Experion LS gets you to production faster and keeps you there.
