Third-Party System Integration

​The advent of packaged equipment has made third-party system integration more important than ever for distributed control systems (DCS). Experion® PKS takes this to the next level with several flexible means of seamlessly integrating third-party system. Users benefit from greater operational efficiency and ease of use.

Users can integrate third-party system, including control systems, with Experion PKS to address their different requirements:

  • SCADA Interfaces- If data is only required at the operator station for control and monitoring, users can interface the third-party system directly with the Experion server. This is particularly relevant for application in utilities, pipelines, and vibration monitoring systems.
  • Controller interfaces- If data is required in the DCS controller for interlocking or control, users can bring the data straight to the controller such as in case of sub-sea systems.
  • Combination- If data is required in both the operator environment and the control environment, it can be easily sent to both such as in the case of motor control centers (MCC)

Experion comes with an array of native SCADA interfaces and is, in fact, an excellent standalone SCADA system. In addition, users can interface numerous MatrikonOPC drivers with Experion. Using these SCADA interfaces, Experion enables a direct connection between third-party system, the Experion server and Human Machine Infrastructure (HMI) without the need to use a DCS controller as a mailbox.

If users require data from third-party systems in their C200 or C300 controllers, this can be easily achieved through the communications interfaces provided with these controllers, including Modbus, Modbus TCP, Profibus and DeviceNet. Users can benefit from both the controller connections and the server connections to have the ultimate flexible solution.​

Modern plants have an extensive range of smart equipment delivering useful information to both the operator and the DCS controllers. Experion provides a flexible way to efficiently access that data in a seamless manner, regardless of where that data comes from – a C300 DCS controller, a MasterLogic PLC or an RC500 RTU – in the same HMI, ensuring easy configuration and maintenance.​
