June 18, 2017
Combined with Honeywell’s Experion DCS, the controller reduces integration efforts and project costs and enhances security.

Honeywell Process Solutions releases its newest ControlEdge Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). The release, combined with Honeywell’s Experion distributed control system (DCS), provides a reduction in integration efforts and enhances cybersecurity, according to the company.

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 family of controllers. Experion and ControlEdge PLC leverage a common Human Machine Interface (HMI) platform, provide faster field device commissioning and improve device diagnostics according to Honeywell.

The PLC is being offered to end users, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies, particularly those in global refining, oil and gas, power, chemical, water management industries and infrastructure applications.

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.
