Small Controller Lowers Costs

April 1, 2009
The Experion LS control system is designed to provide the power of a distributed control system in a small and flexible solution.
It manages all continuous process control applications and optimizes batch and sequence-oriented applications typically found at specialty chemicals, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and consumer goods producers. Scalable from a single PC and controller to multiple stations, the control system promotes plant reliability and flexibility while lowering lifecycle costs for smaller manufacturing sites. It is well-suited for smaller plants by allowing the manufacturer better response to market changes while offering robust process and batch control features. Because it requires less engineering effort to configure and is easier to maintain than a PLC or large DCS, Experion LS can help plants save up to $20,000 per year in support per system, says the vendor.Honeywell Process Solutionswww.honeywell.com/ps973.455.2000
