​Honeywell’s PMD Controller (Field Controller) regulates fieldbus-based processes and process equipment as part of process, machinery and drives (PMD) control. It helps meet diverse control needs for various industries by managing continuous and batch processes, machines, and standalone and coordinated line drives.

PMD controller is available in rack mountable configuration; a single 19” rack can house up to four controllers. With its wide range of control tools, PMD Controller can support conventional controls and logic as well as advanced control methods such as fuzzy logic, neural net, optimization, multivariable controls and statistical process control.

Along with its high capacity, fieldbus interfaces and functions, PMD Controller offers: 

  • Flexibility and convenience with in-built tools

  • Integrated tools to manage applications, and system and field device definitions

  • Centralized fieldbus maintenance and alarm and diagnostics management

  • Ability to extend and distribute Profibus fieldbus.

The PMD Controller includes two fieldbus interfaces that support the Profibus standard EN50170 and interface DP/VO, V1, V2, Class 1 and 2 Master. A two-channel serial interface is also integrated into the controller. It has a multi-speed UPLINE highway interface that allows the rack-based I/O to be connected to the system. The controller connects to the automation system’s network through an Ethernet interface. It includes a control application execution environment for direct control of the process and any fieldbus-resident devices beyond the fieldbus.

PMD Controller’s control functions and fieldbus interfaces, and the functions of fieldbus-connected devices are defined within the automation system’s standard definition tools. Consequently, data is displayed in an identical form by the application, regardless of the device and the fieldbus in use.

​With integrated PMD and advanced plant control methods, PMD Controller helps users improve production quality and performance, and reduce maintenance and lifecycle management costs.
