Honeywell's new logic controller reduces integration costs for industrial plants

ControlEdge PLCControlEdge™ PLC provides powerful enhancements to integration with Experion® 


Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced on 12 June, the newest release of its ControlEdge™ Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). This release, combined with Honeywell’s Experion® distributed control system (DCS), provides a significant reduction in integration efforts and project costs as well as increased security and availability through enhanced cyber security for industrial facilities.

The PLC is used in a variety of balance of plant applications, such as equipment and device level control. It is part of the ControlEdge next generation family of controllers offering unprecedented, secure connectivity through all levels of process and business operations. Experion and ControlEdge PLC leverage a common Human Machine Interface (HMI) platform, provide faster field device commissioning, and improve device diagnostics.

The PLC is being offered to end users, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies, particularly those in global refining, oil and gas, power, chemical, water management industries, and infrastructure applications.

“Aside from greatly reducing integration costs when combined with Experion, ControlEdge PLC minimizes downtime through unified support, further decreases risk through embedded cyber security, and lowers total cost of ownership through an extended system lifecycle,” said Andrew D’Amelio, vice president and general manager of HPS’ Process Measurement and Control business. “With this newest release, we emphasize our commitment to rapidly evolve this platform to cover more applications and bring additional value to users.”

“Our customers benefit from seamless integration of a DCS with PLC, RTU, field device asset management, and a new HMI panel PC,” said Andrew Brodie, HPS global marketing leader, Controls. “Only Honeywell can serve as a single vendor for all these automation needs.”

ControlEdge PLC provides an IIoT-ready open platform that uses OPC Unified Architecture (UA) as a communication protocol and enables users to better leverage data across their assets. Honeywell’s IIoT portfolio of technologies is bundled in Honeywell Connected Plant, which combines Honeywell’s unmatched industrial expertise, software and cloud technologies to make customers’ operations more reliable, profitable and secure than ever before possible.
