Honeywell Experion PMD Release 800
Honeywell has upgraded Experion PMD, boosting the range and functionality of its automation solution for controlling processes, machinery and drives through a single system.
The release of Experion’s integrated Process, Machinery and Drive control (PMD) widens the scope of the solution further, integrating Experion Alarm Management, Experion Integrated Historian, OneWireless and Digital Video Manager solutions. Release 800 also adds a Field Controller Express (FCE) controller with over 60% more controller point capacity, integrated Profibus and TotalPlant Alcont UPLINE/IOLINE highway interface, native peer-to-peer connectivity with Experion MX and the Experion PKS controller family through parameter connection and a single point of data entry.
With Experion PMD the result is better quality, more efficient production and reduced maintenance and project lead times, the company says. The solution is suitable for pulp and paper manufacturers, as well as those in the chemicals, metals, pharmaceuticals and food and beverage industries.
PMD controllers can be used on all control levels for implementing advanced controls, fast machine controls and process controls. A single, consistent set of engineering tools across these levels means lower capital costs and enables cost-effective execution of production line and plant-wide control. Benefits include reduced database maintenance, easier training, increased access to diagnostic information, single alarm and event logging, and faster control responses.
The release is fully scalable and also continues to support migration from Honeywell’s TotalPlant Alcont (TPA) systems. Customers migrating to Experion PMD are able to re-use many existing TotalPlant Alcont assets to minimise costs, commissioning and start-up times. Existing TotalPlant Alcont application solutions are converted to Experion using existing cabinets, I/O and wiring so the costs of implementation can be minimised while extending the life of assets.
