Built on a proven and capable platform, ControlEdge PLC provides an IIoT-ready open platform that enables users to better leverage data across their assets. Use of the OPC UA protocol offers smooth integration to a broad range of instruments while providing built-in cybersecurity. Interoperable multi-level and multiplatform open communication provides flexible and scalable design, enabling standardization with less hardware.
An IIoT-ready platform enables more direct access to cloud-based applications for visualization and analytics. Direct access and reduced gateways deliver investment protection and easier maintenance, and therefore reduced cost and risk.
Built-in EtherNet/IP and Profinet enables integration with a wide range of I/O modules, drives, devices, and controllers. In addition, more I/O module options reduce cost and improve flexibility in system design, and a serial interface module supports Modbus RTU, Modbus ASCII, and user-defined protocols.
Honeywell is the first to provide a complete ecosystem including PLC, SCADA, Safety, and DCS together.
