Honeywell extends control room capabilities to the field
Honeywell Process Solutions has announced a panel PC said to bring control room capabilities out to the field. Experion Panel PC (PPC) is an industrial-grade touch panel PC that is said to bring more efficiency to operational workflows throughout the plant, and can reduce annual maintenance and integration efforts by up to 3%.
Experion PPC combines the Experion HMI with touchscreen functionality on a widescreen 1080p display, improving field operator effectiveness by up to 20% in abnormal situations. It is certified for Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations and can be used throughout a plant while meeting real-time process control demands in extreme environmental conditions.
“Experion PPC was conceived to fulfil virtually any customer control or monitoring requirement, making it a truly universal HMI solution for industrial environments,” said Ujjwal Kumar, vice president and general manager of HPS’s Process Measurement and Control business. “Extending the Experion HMI from the control room to field operations enables our customers in industries such as oil and gas, refining, chemicals, power, renewable energy and metals to significantly reduce total cost of ownership.”
The touch panel PC can be used in conjunction with Honeywell solutions such as the Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), PlantCruise by Experion, Experion LX and Experion HS; and with any third-party, Windows 10-based controllers and applications. It can also be deployed as a standalone thin client or Windows-based computer.
