​HART is an open protocol that delivers the benefits of smart field devices while offering the simplicity and ease-of-use associated with traditional I/O. Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) integrates HART devices to improve system performance, process availability, safety and throughput, while reducing lifecycle costs for upgrading and maintaining smart field devices.  

See how one of our customers won 2011 HART Plant of the Year in this Control Engineering article.  Also, read more about using HART with asset management systems.

Honeywell ensures seamless integration with Experion with its HART enabled I/O modules. Available in the Chassis-A, PMIO, and Series-C form factors, the modules enable the effective use of HART digital data for control, display, diagnostics, parameterization and asset management. Users can improve availability by implementing the modules in an optionally redundant fashion.

Experion PKS provides the freedom to communicate with HART devices removing barriers such as scan rate limitations. Access to detailed device performance and abnormal condition information lets users report device malfunction or failure and information about process-related abnormalities. In addition, the HART solution provides plant operators and maintenance personnel full access to all field device information directly through Experion.

Experion’s best-in-class, ‘open’ HART solution automatically populates HART process and status data through the I/O cards into the C200 and C300 process controllers, and finally into standard operator displays. Absolutely no additional configuration is required. The I/O cards also provide a pass-through capability that enables full asset management using the Honeywell Field Device Manager (FDM) application.

The complete solution is based on open standards and is fully compliant with the HART protocol specification. The handheld solution is available on open pocket PC-based platforms and works equally well with devices from all vendors. All device-specific data is gathered from the HART standard device description (DD) files and no special vendor files are required to integrate the device with the Honeywell solution. If no DD file is available, the HART universal and common practice data and diagnostics can be utilized.

​Smart field devices provide valuable process and diagnostic information that enhances every facet of the process and improves plant operations and availability. Experion HART integration allows users to access and utilize this valuable information in a cost-effectively manner, using a technology that is easy to implement. This results in improved process availability and enhanced safety management of the process, plant and personnel.
