October 2015 PLCs, DCSs & Controllers

Honeywell Process Solutions has announced its newest version of Experion LX, a distributed control system (DCS) designed specifically for small and mid-sized companies. Built on the proven Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), Experion LX includes a number of capabilities to support mid-sized 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,” said Shen Tao, Experion LX senior product manager, HPS. “A powerful, compact DCS like Experion LX provides those customers with a cost-effective solution to solve the challenges of smaller plants and operations.”

Experion LX’s major enhancements include:

• Enhanced Batch operations capabilities: S88 compliant batch system runs entirely on Experion LX’s C300 controller providing faster and more reliable batch operations compared to the competing server-based system. Class-Based Recipes enables reuse of recipes and helps reduce the cost of recipe engineering, maintenance, and testing.

• Scada enhancements: Experion LX provides a comprehensive set of scada capabilities including new equipment based configuration which significantly reduces engineering effort.

• Engineering tools enhancements: HMIWeb Solution Pack provides a ready-to-use library of standardised objects to build ASM compliant displays, enabling the quick projects implementation and effective plant operation. CAB Developer and Application Development Toolkit allow efficient algorithm and application development tailored for specific requirements, reducing engineering and maintenance costs.
