Distributed control systems (DCS) traditionally target large process control applications, partly because only the largest oil and gas or chemical plants could afford them and had the expertise to implement them. Now Honeywell has retooled its flagship
“The historical focus for Experion was the largest, most complex applications,” says Tim Sweet, Honeywell product marketing manager. “So, to meet the unmet needs of adjacent markets, especially those in emerging economies like
The PS-based system requires less engineering effort to configure and is easier to maintain than a
“Smaller manufacturing operations tell us they need DCS functionality, such as system reliability and greater flexibility, which PLCs can’t offer, but many leading DCS systems are just too big for their operations,” says Norm Gilsdorf, president of Honeywell Process Solutions. “Experion LS offers the best of both worlds. It provides agility to respond to product mix changes and offers advanced optimization and batch technology usually found in larger DCS systems.”
