Honeywell redefined industrial automation with Experion® PKS (Process Knowledge System), the first enterprise-wide distributed control system (DCS) designed to unify people with process, business requirements and asset management.

The latest Experion PKS Orion is the world’s most advanced, open and cyber secure control system in the market today. The new IIoT-ready release further optimizes LEAP™ project execution with automated device commissioning, which enables late binding of devices with loop configuration created in the cloud.

 

Experion PKS Orion integrates people and processes for better performance; the automation system is designed to merge traditionally disparate functions and systems across the manufacturing enterprise. It captures the knowledge of plant personnel and their workflows to deliver sustainable efficiencies. A common and consistent HMI over the entire process control system provides the essential foundation for improving operator effectiveness. The Abnormal Situation Management (ASM®) Consortium guidelines embedded in Experion PKS Orion result in better overall collaboration, allowing plant personnel to make better decisions to improve business performance, safety, efficiency and agility.

Honeywell’s recent advancements in open system integration have led to new capabilities. Tight integration and improved project execution connect equipment to turn data into actionable information. LEAP uses our most innovative, enabling technologies – Universal I/O Cabinets, virtualization, cloud engineering, and auto device commissioning – to revolutionize project execution. LEAP separates the physical from functional design, allowing parallel workflows, using standardized designs, and enabling engineering to be done from anywhere in the world. A large capital project can realize up to 30% capital savings in automation infrastructure projects, and flexibility for up to a 25% improvement in the schedule.  

Experion PKS Orion incorporates new capabilities that have resulted from Honeywell’s advancements in the IIoT realm and open system integration: 

  • Auto device commissioning further optimizes LEAP lean project execution by enabling late binding of devices with loop configuration created in the cloud. The result reduces loop commissioning from hours to minutes.

  • Automated skid integration applies the LEAP solution to PLC integration with easy automatic detection and configuration of Ethernet IP controllers in Experion’s SCADA system.

  • Experion for Electrical Control and Management System (ECMS) allows users to integrate their ECMS with their process control system and have one HMI for both.

  • Field Device Manager provides efficient smart instrument management.

  • Experion Profit Controller in C300 and ACE moves multivariable predictive control out of the Microsoft operating system and into the Experion Control Engineering Environment.

  • Experion supports all wireless standards, including ISA 100.11a and WirelessHART.

Experion PKS Orion offers several benefits to users, including:

  • Improved Performance – Connecting people and knowledge, it merges disparate functions and systems for better decision-making

  • On-Time, On-Budget Project Implementation – Experion PKS Orion leverages a global network of engineers and design centers, and proven methodologies and tools for unsurpassed project execution

  • Lifecycle Investment Protection – It enables cost-effective process and plant management while helping users keep pace with evolving technology through extended lifecycle support, and flexible and easy migration paths, including through virtualization.
