Oct. 9, 2017 – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) says its Experion Local Control Network (LCN) solution enables the incremental upgrade of the company’s legacy TotalPlant Solution (TPS) control system for a “secure, seamless integration” with Experion PKS.
Honeywell says with Experion LCN, industrial facilities can gradually move their legacy control system forward to become part of a new, modern solution while leveraging existing automation assets. The Experion LCN solution provides users with standards-based functionality, regulatory support capabilities, and integrated operations from the field through the plant to the business level, according to Honeywell. Honeywell says the TPS modernization solution minimizes operating disruptions and maintains overall consistency, as well as delivers lifecycle advantages. After modernization, the control system can have a common HMI and unified physical control network, enabling control devices to integrate/expand with the latest generation of Experion PKS controllers and safety systems.
