PLC Significantly Reduces Integration Costs

Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) unveils its ControlEdge Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). This release, combined with Honeywell’s Experion distributed control system (DCS), provides a significant reduction in integration efforts and project costs as well as increased security and availability through enhanced cyber security for industrial facilities.

 

The PLC is used in a variety of balance of plant applications, such as equipment and device level control. It is part of the ControlEdge next generation family of controllers offering unprecedented, secure connectivity through all levels of process and business operations. Experion and ControlEdge PLC leverage a common Human Machine Interface (HMI) platform, provide faster field device commissioning, and improve device diagnostics.

 

ControlEdge PLC provides an IIoT-ready open platform that uses OPC Unified Architecture (UA) as a communication protocol and enables users to better leverage data across their assets. Honeywell’s IIoT portfolio of technologies is bundled in Honeywell Connected Plant, which combines Honeywell’s unmatched industrial expertise, software and cloud technologies to make customers’ operations more reliable, profitable and secure than ever before possible.
