Like C200/C200E and the ACE node, the C300 operates Honeywell’s deterministic Control Execution Environment (CEE) software which executes control strategies on a constant and predictable schedule. The CEE is loaded into the C300 memory providing the execution platform for the comprehensive set of automatic control, logic, data acquisition and calculation function blocks. Each function block contains a set of pre-defined features such as alarm settings and maintenance statistics. This embedded functionality guarantees consistent process control strategy execution.
The controller supports many input/ output (I/O) families, including Series C I/O and Process Manager I/O, and other protocols such as FOUNDATION Fieldbus, Profibus, DeviceNet, Modbus, and HART.
