Automation technology helps extend uptime and the life of intellectual assets.

Honeywell Process Solutions released the next generation of its most widely used industrial process controller, the High-Performance Process Manager (HPM). The new controller, Enhanced High-Performance Process Manager (EHPM), allows 25 years of distributed control system installed base to seamlessly migrate to the Experion Process Knowledge System. Cost of migration is significantly reduced by preserving control strategies and wiring, according to Honeywell.

Honeywell’s EHPM solution streamlines plant modernization by reducing risks associated with a legacy system upgrade and reducing plant downtime. Honeywell’s modernization roadmap incorporates full flexibility in lifecycle planning, including long-term support of existing equipment for life expectancy extensions and upgrades for plant performance improvements.
