Honeywell announced it is expanding distribution of its MasterLogic line of high-speed, compact programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to worldwide process manufacturers. MasterLogic is said to bring power and robustness to very high-speed logic, interlock and sequencing applications.
MasterLogic can be deployed in a stand-alone mode without requiring any human machine interface. It is also an additional controller that can be used with Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System architecture and is compatible with Honeywell’s portfolio of process control systems, including the recently released Experion LS. As an additional controller tightly integrated to the control system, MasterLogic can help increase operational efficiency by allowing plants to control multiple processes with just one common operator interface. In addition, this seamless integration can reduce engineering configuration time by approximately 25% to 35% over segregated alternatives, according to the company.
“Many of our customers see PLCs as cost-effective solutions for very high-speed logic processes, and making those processes are part of the bigger control system allows plants to achieve greater efficiency and greater throughput,” said Tim Sweet, product marketing manager for Honeywell Process Solutions. “The MasterLogic PLC provides the flexibility commonly associated with PLCs and augments it with a global support network and the ability to integrate with the industry’s newest control systems.”
