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 new 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 for the first time. Release 800 also adds a new Field Controller Express controller with over 60 percent 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.

PMD controllers can be used on all control levels for implementing advanced controls, fast machine controls and process controls. The new release is fully scalable and also continues to support migration from Honeywell’s TotalPlant Alcont systems. Customers migrating to Experion PMD are able to reuse many existing TotalPlant Alcont assets to minimize costs and commissioning and start-up times.
